Walls with Wow

One of the things on my “I will get around to some day” list is to sort out all my old photo’s, organise them into albums, frame some of the more memorable ones and scan and convert them to digital format.  No mean feat when I think of the decades of memories lurking in the back of closets, in the attic and god knows where else.

This also got me thinking about creative ways to display photographs and artwork.  Here are some of my favourites.

Birch & Lily

Design Sponge

Modern Jane

Apartment Therapy

And how about this for solving your wall art and storage problems at the same time!

About Karen

My name is Karen Hughes and I'm an Interior Designer from Dublin, Ireland. I’m passionate about design and I started this blog as a way to connect with others just as passionate as myself. I tend to ramble on about all sorts of things, projects I’m working on, people, places and things that inspire me (and some that don’t). So put the kettle on, get comfy and settle in. I hope you enjoy your visit and don't forget to say hello. Visit my website to find out more about my services and view my work.


  1. Nice collection, they certainly make the most of the available wall space. My favourite is modern jane, I like the consistency and the fact they photos are black and white.

  2. I love black and white photo's myself Julie. I know what you mean about the consistency of the modern jane ones, there is something distinctly classic about them. But I must admit, I love the randomness of the nesting place ones just as much 🙂

  3. Brilliant Post, Love the Apartment Therapy layout. Another way of displaying pictures that I really like is to paint a block of colour just behind where all your frames will go. Very striking. Anyway Brilliant post.



  4. Glad you enjoyed it 🙂
