Polaroids as Wall Decor

Yesterday, Beth pointed out the impact of a single basket as wall decor. Here's a 180 from that look but the impact is just as strong. While we've seen this done before, we've never seen it as well done as it is in photographer Luciano Noble's home. Not only is it a great decor but a fun way to document visitors (and a great backdrop for many of Luciano's photos)...Though old-school Polaroid film is no longer being manufactured (and hard to find what's still available), there are many substitutes that mimic Polaroid's look in digital format though the repetition of any small size photo will be just as effective. To do it yourself, start small -- a single line across a room, a section of wall -- and keep your camera handy to photograph "head shots" of visitors as they walk in the door. It's a great way to keep track of who visits you and bring some life to your walls.
