When we first moved into our home, it was a blank canvas. I was lucky enough to be able to chose everything from the carpet, to the hardwood floors, to the kitchen counter tops. At 9 months pregnant it wasn’t the time to really make our house, a home, just get it ready enough for baby number one.
Now, as I slowly finish decorating each room with furniture and big accessories like this clock, I am being drawn to the little touches that make it feel less like a shell and more like a home. Little touches like family pictures and cute prints in frames.
I was excited to find this company called Inkifi, who turn your Instagram photos into gorgeous framed collages. You get to choose how many squares and which photos you want where. I decided to do one of our recently family holiday to Lanzarote and the other of my favorite picutres of the kids. I added one to each side of my oversized clock. This is the walkway between our sitting room and dining room through the open planned kitchen.Then I added a landscape double of both of my kids to the left side of the door leading into the kitchen. I bought this frame cheap off amazon and the pictures were had done at Pixifoto. The three white frames have really brought light to the kitchen wall. I love family photos everywhere, going from room to room staring back at me. It reminds me of the beautiful family I have and everything I am most grateful for. These two gorgeous prints are from Violet & Percy. I came across this lovely company on Instagram and instantly fell in love. They both individually match Buba’s and Missy Moo’s bedrooms perfectly. I again bought matching white frames from amazon.
Buba’s print is above his bookshelves that I made out of Ikea spice racks and painted. I love the french style to the picture. If you missed Buba’s Room Tour, check it out. At the moment Missy Moo’s print lays on top of her dresser. I like it here, but haven’t quite decided if I want to hang it on her wall. The colors in this print match her pink wall on the opposite side of this, beautifully. If you haven’t seen Missy Moo’s Room Tour, check it out.
Personalized pictures and prints can really show character in a home, bringing those otherwise blank walls to life. They tell a story, leaving guests and residence feeling comfortable and surrounded by love. I have always been a huge fan of pictures all over my home, making my walls speak for themselves.
