There is one thing I realized a couple of weeks ago that I don’t do enough, and that is decorating with photographs. We go on so many trips throughout the year and especially the summer and take amazing photos but besides a photo book here and there, I barely ever develop any of those precious photos. That clearly needs to end. And when Snapfish contacted me to team up with them, I couldn’t jump fast enough at the chance to add some of those photos to our home.
(This post was created in partnership with Snapfish. All opinions are my own.)
I wanted to create a focal wall with an additional pattern that would complement our family photos and to take it away from a traditional gallery wall.
I had my eye on the Quadrille Sigourney wallpaper for a while but didn’t know when and where I could use the pattern but when I was thinking about this project it just made sense. I made my pattern in Illustrator again (the same way I explained HERE) and cut it on my silhouette. All I had to do is stick it on the walls. My pattern is smaller than the original because I can’t cut it as big (I wish I could) and it is also totally symmetrical which the original isn’t.
I wanted to make a fun gif and had snapped away so many photos but right in the middle of things I didn’t pay attention and my husband just moved the camera. What? All that snapping for nada? Come on! So now I don’t have a fun little gif-movie for you, sorry about that.
Do you recognize my daughter’s desk? Well I want to keep it and get her a bigger one. It’s perfect here and more the size of a sideboard anyways than a desk:
And then it was time to add the beautiful photos I had ordered from the Snapfish Canvas & Decor section (click HERE).
I ordered a 16×20 wrapped canvas of my children which I took at my niece’s christening in front of the church in Germany, black framed 11×14 of us in the Swiss Alps, a black framed 8×10 photo of my kids together in the dunes of Avalon, and two separate small 5×7 black framed photos of my kids. What i love so much is that photos come framed like a piece of art. Look at the back of it. They make the perfect present for a loved one.
This is the first time I have ever gotten a photo as a wrapped canvas and I love the dimension it gives the photo and how it stands out from the other framed photographs. Just look at the following photos with all the added accessories.
I will promise to myself to develop more photos of our beautiful family to decorate around the house.
Have a great week my friends.
