After all of the hard work, there is nothing more worthwhile than witnessing your images in print and shown as art!

4 tips to choose the Best Decoration for your home
The style must be defined because of your personality
It is true: our house talks for ourselves and sometimes we could so concerned about the impression the house is going to make among our guests that we neglect that, before anything, it is our home, our most private space.
For this reason, looking for accessories for our home, we end buying things that people do not use. My first advice is to encourage you to find your own style. Don't get confused: you don't have to follow a craze because it looks in decor publications. First of all, you have to love and admit yourself and how will you live. You have to consider your home as a place which displays your visual personality: a reflection of yourself, your personality and the result of your daily habits.
Often I ask yourself about which would be my interior design style. I love to see pictures of little homes, but I also get excited about spaces or apartments. What it holds true is the fact that, actually, I wouldn't like to live in these houses because it wouldn't be comfortable to have my everyday life.
What I've done? I'm not getting frustrated any more intending that my home follows a pattern or another and I've accepted that my home is like me. Sometimes, a little crazy: I wish to have family or my kids photos at sight and being surrounded by handmade items that I've found in stores, in second-hand market segments or online. For me, this details will be the ones that produce my home cozy. Plant life are also a vital necessity in my own home.
To sum up: if your home is in line with your personality, you'd be also more content and would enjoy more every little moment in time there.
Look for items that give you this feeling
Let yourself be guided from your instinct. You will find objects that immediately get you and say something to you, awakening emotions inside of us. I personally feel that being taken along for this emotion is not dangerous.
For instance: I love to discover these little brands from creative people; I'm sensitive to the delicacy of the imperfection and, because of this, their masterpieces are unique and ideal for me. I favor them rather than commercial products from big brands and stores and I really believe they make my home a charming home.
Also, if you get objects which have this emotional connection with you, this feeling will be transferred into the home: positive feelings that would encompass you a big part of the day and would give you satisfaction, making your home your shelter.
When utilizing a collection of different shaded and textured frames, choose black and white images to keep them from looking cluttered. Black color & white images can also supply the display a more unified look. I had formed my friend Kristen from Studio room7 HOME DESIGN help me choose decorative frames & fine art for a small gallery wall in my entry.
This is a wall that could normally go un-noticed. I wanted to carefully turn it into a focal point. I held all my images in dark & white except the family photo in the center. The target was to get the attention there first, then to the dark & white images in the outside frames. Similarly as effective is always to choose brilliant images for sturdy black casings or stable white framessuch as this wall, also created by my pal Kristen.
Choose larger sized designs and canvases for areas where you can view them over the room. What's the idea in printing small 4x6's and 5x7's if you can't see them if you don't walk up to them?
The prints on my mantel needed to be big (at least 16x20) in order to take pleasure from them from across the room. The big you are a 22x27 inch size. I actually can have eliminated bigger for the space available, but I didn't want to hide the decorative trim-work of the complete mantel. So, definitely, take into consideration the area you are filling when deciding what size you can go.
I also opt for more timeless, imaginative image of my family walking, rather an enormous portrait in our faces. This was an individual decision when i was taking a more artistic feel that travelled with the style and colors of the area. Even though our faces remain unseen, we are very well symbolized by the composition in the image as well as in the close up of the youngsters in the image next to it.
Way too many portraits around your home? Try converting a few of your images into fine art using the Waterlogue app! This is a sensible way to use your images, but give them another type of look. My home design friend recommends showing skill or still life/food in your kitchen, rather than portraits. An image turned through this iphone app might be a good choice. Here's a good example of an image turned into skill using the Waterlogue app. (Image by Liz Behm)
Choose photos to display that were used that one room of your home. For instance, food photography in the kitchen, lifestyle images in the living room, bath images of your children in the tub displayed in the bathroom, and even more personal photographs in the bed room.
The other day I decided I needed to fill the space above a doorway in my own kitchen with some food images.
Considerations I made before I had taken the images:
Just how much space I had a need to fill and how many images.
Appropriate size to the space.
The style/colors that would go well in my own kitchen.
How those images would look from over the room.
Because I couldn't go bigger when compared to a 10x10, I thought we would use my macro lens and tried to capture close-up textures of the super fruit vs. a more styled shot with atmosphere that could be harder to see from over the room.
Edit your photographs to complement the design of the space it'll be in. For example, light and airy, rich in color & compare, black & white, etc. Also, if you are displaying images along, edit them side by side in your editing program to ensure they mix well and the color is consistent from image to image.
I did this with my berries images. I transferred them around in Photoshop to help me visualize how they might look hung. I segregated the blueberry image (usually blue) and the grapefruit (blue qualifications) with the yellowish pineapple in the middle so each image would stand out and look well balanced next to one another.
