As a Scottsdale AZ baby photographer, I like to help my clients find beautiful ways to display their photos on their walls.
The wall space right above the headboard in a bedroom is usually a nice big space for a portrait display. (unless you have a window there, like me, in which case you can’t really put a picture there)
What’s a good way to display photos over my bed?
I have two quick ideas with examples to show how you can display your photos over the bed.
Go big or go home
In this example, one large portrait is beautifully framed and placed above the bed:
I love the simplicity and boldness of this display. This portrait will definitely command attention when you walk into the room! This is a framed 40X30 print.
More is more
The second idea is to do a collage, like this:
The modern yet classic look of unframed canvas is ideal for collages. This is a great idea when you want to show more than just one person or can’t decide on a single photo to showcase. This is a 20X30 canvas flanked by two 16X20 canvases.
These are two great looks, and there isn’t a right and wrong choice. I personally like to do both in a room. On one wall I’ll put a big single print and on another wall do a collage of several prints. The best of both worlds, if you ask me!
You may be thinking, “How do I know which sizes of prints or canvases should I get? What if I get the wrong size?”
Well, I am happy to say I can help with that! I have this amazing (and super fun) software that allows me to upload pictures of YOUR room in YOUR own home and we can play around with wall displays of YOUR portraits!!! How cool is that?! This takes all the guess work out of what sizes of canvas or prints to purchase. When you get them you will know exactly where to hang them!
If you want to know how this works, there is a page in my client guide that explains how to take a picture of your walls. There is also LOTS of other great info in that guide, and it’s FREE so go ahead and download it now!
Here’s a few more example for ya:
Are you a collage person or do you love the single portrait look? Let me know in the comments!
