How to Display Photos in Your Home

When you order a custom family portrait from me you’ll receive a digital file to use however you’d like. But I know that often times we put off printing our images, so they end up sitting on our phones instead of filling our homes and making us smile. You know what I’m talking about, those vacation pictures from the beach belong on your wall! So let’s do something about that, shall we? Here are some ideas for how you can display your portraits around your home.

illustrated portraits, cute square prints

Parabo Press prints. (I’m obsessed with this square format! I mean obviously, that’s the instagram lover coming out in me.) They come on a heavy textured paper and look so cute hanging in a grid on the wall. Use my code IIXEOV and get $10 off your order.

Canvas Prints. Printed on sturdy canvas with wrapped edges around a wooden frame, these look so nice in a gallery wall with some of your favorite art! If you need some tips on how to create this look yourself, then check out this helpful guide.

magnetic wood framed poster

Magnetic Hangers. This look is one of my favorites. Printed on semi gloss sturdy canvas ready to hang in no time.

wooden block photo stand

Wooden Block from Rooted and Built Design. This would make a GREAT gift idea for mom or dad or anyone who works at a desk that could use some cheering up. (these work best if your print is on a thick paper that can hold it’s shape. Parabo Press prints would work perfectly.)

family portrait present tags

Christmas present toppers. How cute is this? Your family portrait can double as your Christmas tags this year! Simply use twine or yarn and a mini paper clip and you have the most personable gift tags ever. I’m definitely going to be creating some gift tags for my husband and I’s Christmas gifts this year.. better get on that. ;)

And of course, the classic shelfie. A print in a frame with a simple vase is so timeless!

These are just a few ideas but there are so many other ways to incorporate prints into your home. I hope they inspired you! Let me know what you think and give me a shout if you have any questions at all about family portraits or printing. xo.

Feel Good Friday

Things I'm loving right now.

WATCHING: You guys have to check out Little Big World on youtube (or Amazon Prime!). I stumbled on it today and it's amazing. Basically it's a series of time-lapses taken all over the world and edited with a tilt shift lens, which makes everything look miniature and adorable! Each episode is less than 3 minutes, so it's super fun and easy to watch.

PLANNING: Our trip to the Bahamas! We're staying on Long Island in March. If you have any tips for the Out Islands send them my way ;) If you're interested, you can follow along with my planning on my pinterest board.

LOVING: Design Love Fest's interior.

EATING: I got a juicer for Christmas so I've been doing a lot of experimenting. I like to keep track of the combinations I've used so I might post them here from time to time. Because I mean, those COLORS. So gorgeous right? Y'all have any fave juice recipes?

WEARING: It's been unusually warm in OK for February. I've basically been living in a tank top with a light sweater and it's been bliss.
