almost single room of their house. With simple DIY tips, anyone can turn

décor collection. Make your home stand out this holiday season with
these quck tips.
Hang Photos Like You Would Art: Edit down your photo selection
until you are expressing your desired sentiment.
Life is More Than One Photo Shoot: Rather than adorning
the entire house with a single set of photos from a wedding or baby's
arrival, incorporate many events to tell your story with a collage of
Put Up Portraits: Familiar faces bring an element of
comfort to a home. Depending on your design, choose candid imagery or
posed shots to evoke certain emotions. Also, shoot for silhouettes or
shadows if you want to take a more artistic approach.
Use Photo Filters: Create uniformity between
generations of photographs or an array of subject matter by making all
of the images black and white or applying a filter like sepia.
Showcase Your Passions: Surround yourself with pictures of the
things you love and get creative in your installation - build out an
ever-growing hall of travel photos, pay homage to your favorite sports
team by dedicating the staircase walls to those images, or create a
photo book for the coffee table filled with everything you love.
Holiday Cards as Décor: Get creative in displaying your holiday
cards this season, such as a DIY arrangement of cards hanging from
branches in a vase or holiday cards on a wreath.
