Display Family Memories (31 days to Love the Home You Have)

31 days to Love the Home You Have

This post is part of a 31 day series – 31 days to Love the Home You Have.  I am blogging through the 31 day challenge in the back of the book “Love the Home You Have” by Melissa Michaels of The Inspired Room.  You can read all the posts in the series so far here.  And to make sure you don’t miss a post you cansign up to have every post delivered to your inbox , or follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest orInstagram to get even more home decorating ideas and inspiration to help you fall in love with your home.

Do you display family pictures in your home?  How and where do you display them?  I LOVE more personalized art for my walls.  While paintings, or art, or even architectural pieces are great, meaningful and personal is what I truly love!  I talked a bit about meaningful art in my post on keeping encouragement in view so you can get some ideas in that post too.

But today’s let talk about displaying family photos.  I actually did a post all about decorating with family photos in my first ever 31 days series – you can read that post here.  Lots of great ideas and some different/unusual ways to display photos.  Think outside the box.  Family photos in a nice frame on your end table are great.  But what about creating a gallery wall over a piece of furniture in your hall or living room or going up your stairs?  Or what about using a large open picture frame and hanging Instagram snapshots on a string across that frame? 

Molly created a fun display using a Goodwill picture frame that will encourage you to change pictures out as you get new ones and the kids grow.

And then she also created a mini gallery wall in their loft too using a mix of family photos, chalkboards, DIY pieces, and fun architectural pieces.

You could also display family photos in a mantel display.

I need to add some family photos to our home.  But our wedding pictures aren’t digital (I know, we are old! Smile and I have a harder time finding somewhere to print from negatives now.  We also need to get some family photos done this fall/Christmas that I can add.  So that is on my list of things to do.  I had wanted to do a stairway gallery wall, but I think that may be a project for our future home.

Challenge for you: So what family picture could you print today and add to your home?  It could be a fun selfie or just a candid shot from a recent family outing.  Don’t let all those pictures get buried on your phone and computer – print them to keep the memories of those good times in view!


  1. I’ve recently gotten copies of old black & white family photos and have framed several of them. They look great on display and it’s fun to see what our family looked like when they were young!
    Really enjoying this series!
