Choosing your favourite photographs is the easy part, deciding how to display them is another story.

Fortunately, the design fundis at Beetroot Inc. have advice for making those photos say more than a thousand words.

Family tree

Create a family tree gallery wall for all your loved ones.This is an opportunity to mix pictures of your family over generations and is bound to be a conversation starter.

To create a cohesive look, choose exact matching frames or different coloured ones but in the same style.

Memorable mix

Cover a wall with pictures that mean something to you – that once-in-a-lifetime holiday, a wedding portrait and a picture of your baby’s little feet.

To make them work as a collection, you could edit the pictures and apply the same colour filter before printing, or save them all as black-and-white images.

Picture chandelier

Create a funky chandelier with photos instead of glass drops. This could make a wonderful, alternative mobile for your little one or a show-stopper in a hallway or on a landing.

If you have children, mix photos with printed photos of your kids’ artwork.

Functional art

Turn your photos into functional art with a photo tray from Beetroot Inc.

Alternatively, make your own by adding handles to each end of a photo frame and adding extra hardboard to the back to make it a secure tray.
