The walkway along the long interior wall had to remain free of furniture, so Anne Turner saw the blank wallspace as the perfect spot to hang a collection of family photos. “I’ve always wanted to display a scrapbook-like arrangement!” she exclaims. “I was able to pull out pictures that had been stuffed in drawers for years to give them their proper place.”
She placed her most cherished photos, such as her wedding pictures, in store-bought frames of various sizes and hung the frames in three vertical rows: only vertical shots on the outer rows, and a mix of horizontal and vertical shots in the middle. She then tucked loose snapshots between the frames with clear, sticky photo corners.
