Ideas to decorate your room

If you’re a photograph lover and would like to see them every day, it’s a good idea to decorate our room or study with them.

1. Hang your photographs on a wall clothesline

A good option is to keep your photos above your bed so that you can see them better when you go into your room.

You can keep a clothesline or cord on the wall and hang your photos on the cord with clips. This will allow you to secure them to prevent them from falling down.

2. A clock with your favorite photos

Another great idea brings together two prized personal items your photos and your clock. You can make a really original clock using the photos as numbers.

  • You just need a clock mechanism and 12 of your favorite photos.
  • Stick them up with an adhesive that doesn’t damage the wall and place the clock hands in the center. Done!

3. Personalize your jars and lids

You can buy jars with transparent lids and stick the photo to the edges. Inside you can place accessories like sand, sequins, or little pearls.

This will give your photos a different touch and you can hang them up or put them on your desk.

5. Hang your memories on a stick!

A very chic variant to hang up your photos is to use a tree branch or a wooden stick.

  • Hang the stick on the wall and tie several strings to it so that they hang vertically.
  • Then stick or clip the photos to them however you like best and you will have a hanging photo album.

6. A garland of photos

Continuing with the trend of hanging photos, a good option is to use some fairy lights as a string.

Hang them up along the whole wall and attach your photos to them.

This will give your room a touch of light and it’s also perfect for lighting up your pictures.

7. Use a frame

You can also use a frame and paint it to give it a vintage touch or your own style.

  • You can use nails to attach the strings to the frame, or you can stick or tie them.
  • Once you have the right number of lines to fit your frame, hang up your photos using clips.

8. A column with your photographs

If you want to decorate an empty column, a very good idea is to fill it with photographs, according to the shape of the wall.

  • To show your photos in a sophisticated way, we recommend you use pieces of wood and that you paint them the color you prefer.
  • Then stick the photos onto the wood with glue for varnished surfaces and leave it to dry.

Your photos will have a shiny touch and be well-attached.

9. A vertical board of your memories

You can use a long, vertical piece of wood and paint it or varnish it. Then you can position your photos at different angles on it.

The vertical touch will make your room seem much bigger and more complete, so you can consider this option if you have a corner that’s “missing something”.

Lately, it has really come into fashion to organize photos in a specific design. It could be the shape of a heart, a diamond, a triangle, or whatever you like!

This is a very beautiful design that gives a unique touch to your space.

Wood goes great with photos. You can use some any old pieces or planks and varnish them to make them look as good as new.
