Framing your Memories

This year, one of my home decor projects is to be printing and hanging a bunch of new pictures.  I've been trying to go through my hard drive and group things better and try to get ready for the printing process.  In the meantime, however, I've been dreaming about all the options that are available to me.

In my living room, I currently have a quad group of pictures, two of which are artwork, and two are of my girls.  I plan on keeping these pictures, but updating the pictures of the girls, because I like the focal pieces there.  My staircase, though, is a totally different story.  I love the look of photographs on the staircase, however, it's become apparent that all my pictures there are like 6 years outdated.  I really need to come up with something better.  Here's some of the stuff I've been eyeing:

I love the look of lots of pictures like this:

and I love the uniqueness of frames within frames like this:

And the interchangeability of the clothesline frame:

I'm not sure which route I'll go yet.  Though in my searches, I have also been looking for picture frames, of suitable size and quality for my long term needs.  I've found quite a few that I like through The Picture Frame Guys, who specialize in custom framing and matting.  If you like photography, home decor or anything about frames, you really should check out their site.  They have a wide array of beautiful frames like these:

I just love the bright colors!  I'd love to use these for artwork in my kids' room!

The other useful thing about their website is that they have a whole section for resources, Ideas for framing, photography, and more to help you in your photographic journey (whether that be taking pictures or framing them!).  Also make sure that you check out their FAQ, which answers many questions about their services.  Also, as a major bonus, if you're an artist, a gallery, an institution, they have special deals for commercial customers.

I'll make sure to let you know what I end up with, and of course lots of pictures!!!
