- Print and display your travel photos at home
What better photos to print and display than photos from your favourite holidays. Near or far we all love to travel, I know I certainly do - be it the USA, Europe, India or even somewhere closer for a weekend away.
It’s important to capture these moments to remember long after your trip.
A lot of people miss the next — and as important — step: print out your favourites and put them on display for feel good vibes.
My tip is always to print and display really big prints that help fill a wall — we printed these on foam core with a local printer/framer, but you could easily choose to print a canvas using Canon’s Photopico instead.
Selecting your images is easy. Trust your instincts and print your favourites, whichever ones speak to you. Here we were inspired by a favourite place — the beaches of Byron Bay (gotta love this place it’s like paradise), plus a hero shot of some horses our photographer spotted on one of her holidays, as well as a beautiful shot of purple sky.
We have displayed some of these images on the floor or on a mantle piece (such a great place to display an artwork and really make a statement a real hero spot if you have one). We also noticed a blank space in the hall so placed another favourite image here, so it's one of the first things we notice when we walk in the front door - great memories!
Easy Mantle piece styling
Not all your photos need to be printed and hung on the wall, especially if you’re renting (no need to nail or screw anything to the wall) — this is super easy!
All you need is a surface to place your prints on, so a mantle piece is the perfect place to get creative and put your photos on display. Style up your mantle piece (this also works on a sideboard, shelf or even a window sill) and create a feel-good display.
Print holiday snaps, photos of family and friends or inspirational images or quotes — make this display make you smile!
Print out your favourite photos from your camera or your phone to your Pixma printer (every home needs one of these).
Here’s my cheats guide to doing this in your home:
