7 APPROACHES FOR CHOOSING WHICH IMAGES TO Printing FOR YOUR HOME
Over the past month I established a goal to print a few of my work and put it to use to enhance my home. As photographers, we spend our time and abilities to build up our skills so that in the end we can create artwork! I love to think of images as the icing on the wedding cake. After all of the hard work, there's nothing more worthwhile than discovering your images in print and shown as art!

4 tips to find the decor for your home
The style must be defined by your personality
It really is true: our house talks for ourselves and sometimes we are so concerned about the impression our house will make among our guests that we forget 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 we do not use. My first advice is to encourage you to find your own style. Do not get confused: you don't need to follow a tendency because it shows up in decor newspapers. First of all, you have to love and accept yourself and how will you live. You must think about your home as a place which displays your visual identity: a representation of yourself, your personality and the consequence of your daily habits.
Often I wonder about which would be my interior design style. I like to see pictures of little properties, but I also get worked up about spaces or apartments rentals. What it is true is the fact, actually, I wouldn't prefer to live in any of these houses because it wouldn't be comfortable to have my everyday activity.
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 love to have family or my kids photos at vision and being encircled by handmade things that There is to get, in second-hand markets or online. For me, this details are the ones that produce my home cozy. Vegetation are also a essential necessity in my home.
Last but not least: if your home is consistent with your personality, you'd be also happier and would enjoy more every little instant there.
Look for items that give you this feeling
Let yourself be led from your instinct. You will discover objects that immediately get you and say something for you, awakening emotions within us. Personally, i think that being transported along because of this feeling is not high-risk.
For example: I wish to discover these little brands from creative people; I'm hypersensitive to the delicacy of the imperfection and, because of this, their masterpieces are unique and perfect for me. I favor them alternatively than commercial products from big brands and stores and I believe they make my home a wonderful home.
Also, if you buy objects that contain this emotional connection with you, this emotion will be moved into the home: positive emotions that would encircle you a huge area of the day and would give you satisfaction, making your home your shelter.
Keep Coloring at heart
What color is the furniture in the room? How about the wall? How about accent pillows? Each one of these things subject and the art (and framing) should match the coloring of the area around it. While this is complicated, the results will be far better when everything is coordinated. Not matchy-matchy always, but of the same color family and feel.
In my bedroom, for example, I select three floral designs with softer hues that are brought out by the Wythe Blue of the wall, while the structures are dark solid wood, matching the colour of the headboard and lampshades.
The floral designs are of the same color family as the wall structure and quilt, while the casings match the hardwood of the headboard.
Don't Forget the Frame
If you choose to hang a graphic, the shape should complement both d?cor of the area and the color and style of the part itself. You can also need to choose if you want matting or not - while matting can increase the wall size of a smaller piece, be wary of allowing a print out to drown in its boundary. In most cases, smaller bits with large matting only be successful if the image is simple and noticeable from afar. If someone needs to peer close up at a piece to appreciate it, intensive matting is a no-no.
As for the frame material, there are several choices. A wood structure with a carved design can have a good shabby-chic feel, particularly if it's been painted. For a direct vintage look, plain dark wood frames work great. If you need a modernist or contemporary vibe, material or black structures are the way to go.
Also, if you want vivid d?cor, don't be reluctant to go with a bright-colored frame, particularly if the bedroom requires a pop as well as your color choice complements another accent in the space.
Keep Costs Down WHERE YOU ARE ABLE TO
If you're choosing a print, framing can be expensive. Keep costs down by only using images that easily fit into standard-sized frames, that are way cheaper than custom structures. You can even look for vintage frames at car port and real estate sales and then work backward, filling in the photo after you have the frame.
Or, one of the advantages of a wall-mounted shelf or other unorthodox decoration is the lack of structure - that can often be a big cost savings. There are often creative workarounds. The business Wellmade offers Gallery STiiCKs that can structure any poster on two sides for a small percentage of what traditional framing costs - that's what I selected for my three prints above the foundation.
There are also companies that print out photos onto canvas or hardwood - and this don't desire a frame by any means. If you are a shutterbug and have some great pictures you'd like to hang, this might be your chance. Shutterfly offers this service, for example, and you may often find half-off bargains.
For my dining room (pictured above), which also has high ceilings and blends right into the living room, I had developed two prints made and chose a custom size for every that fit the wall-space flawlessly. Because I'm a deal-hunter, the mixed pair cost less than $100 - about the price of getting one large-ish poster custom framed.
Deciding on the best art for a big space isn't easy - but it can be done invest the the time to really plan out the thing you need. Think through the scale, type, coloring, framing and cost of what you would like. And get creativity from the internet and beyond - sites like Houzz can give you great ideas, as can home d?cor magazines, or even just shopping at home goods stores and discovering the way they have their showrooms create.
The main element is visualizing the thing you need before you own it and then patiently working toward discovering the right artwork at the right cost for your space. Don't dash things - Rome wasn't built-in a day, and your home won't be decorated per day. But when your home is fully decorated, it will look fabulous!
