We've always loved rotating our family photos throughout the house. While these select photos have never been the focal point of art on the wall we've always managed to mix them in as part of a wall art display. We've also taken family photos and rendered some black and white to make them more interesting. We never really thought of it as a faux pas until a roommate of ours commented on the idea...
She said that her family photos were kept in photo albums and not for guests to see. In addition, she mentioned that she felt silly displaying family photos. If there were family photos of our roommates that happened to be framed, they were kept in her room on a table.
Since we display our family photos we thought we'd give you a few more ideas on how to exhibit them. In the past we have displayed our family photos on the fridge, stuck them in the corners of mirrors and have turned them into a calendar we keep in the kitchen.
But we couldn't help wondering what the majority of our AT readers do. Is it bad etiquette to have family photos dispersed throughout a home? Are family photos looked upon as private matters--better to be left to a photo album? Or do you display your family photos proudly?
