Given that you're a happy home owner, it's time to deck your surfaces with art that reflects you.

Setting up a cohesive feel is very important, so it could require purchasing some additional bits to supplement the fine art you already own.
Here are five things to consider whenever choosing (or repurposing) art for your new large spaces, along with a couple of case-studies from my own home.
Church Wedding Decoration Ideas On A Budget
There are plenty of tips out there how to build gallery wall space, and how to choose the right casings for your keyword. They are important decisions that need to be produced obviously as well. But since I'm a shooter, not an interior designer, I want to focus on deciding on the best images (that will best compliment your work) for the spaces you are filling.
7 tips to help you select which images to printing for your space
These are not design rules, just recommendations from a photographer's perspective.
Build a folder on your desktop where you save your selected images. Be selective in support of save the methods you absolutely love. Within this folder create other folders to breakdown the many types of images. i.e. macro, food, lifestyle, portraits. Because you edit your photographs, save your favorites to these folders. This will keep them in one arranged place so they may be easy to find when you are ready to print. And it will save you time of time you'll normally devote to combing your archives to find the right image every time you want to printing.
Match the colors in your photographs to your d?cor. This is merely a suggestion which may or may not be your style. I wanted the colors in my prints to compliment the colors of my keyword. Because you search your archives, either look for images which may have certain complimentary shades in them, or you can change them in Photoshop or Lightroom to complement!
The plants in these frames were actually more of a dark green when they were photographed. I altered the shades to become more peachy and soft to complement the lampshade these were next to. You can certainly do this in Lightroom in the HSL and COLOR tab by tinkering with the hue, saturation, and luminance of the various colors in your photography.
An instant way to change colors in Photoshop is by choosing Image, Changes, Color Balance in your menu. Then experiment with the color sliders for your shadows, middle tones and features. Make sure Keep Luminosity is examined.
One other way you can match your prints to the colors in your house is to plan your next photo procedure with your screen area at heart. What is the appearance and feel of your home? Choose a procedure location and/or clothing that will go with the style of your home or the area where the designs will be shown.
When using a collection of different coloured and textured structures, choose black and white images to keep them from looking cluttered. Dark & white images can also give the display a more unified look. I had developed my friend Kristen from Studio7 Interior Design help me choose decorative frames & fine art for a little gallery wall in my entry.
This is a wall that would normally go un-noticed. I wanted to turn it into a focal point. I kept all my images in dark-colored & white except the family photo in the guts. The goal was to sketch the eye there first, then to the dark & white images in the exterior frames. Similarly as effective would be to choose multi-colored images for solid black structures or sturdy white framessuch as this wall, also created by my pal Kristen.
Choose larger size images and canvases for areas where you can see them over the room. What's the idea in producing small 4x6's and 5x7's if you cannot see them unless you walk up to them?
The images on my mantel needed to be big (at least 16x20) in order to enjoy them from over the room. The top some may be a 22x27 inch size. I actually can have gone bigger for the space available, but I didn't want to hide the decorative trim-work of the complete mantel. So, definitely, consider the area you are filling when deciding what size you can go.
I also opt for more timeless, creative image of my family walking, rather a huge portrait of the faces. This was an individual decision as I was going for a more artistic feel that travelled with the style and colors of the room. Even though our faces stay unseen, we are incredibly well represented by the composition in the image as well as in the up close of the kids in the image next to it.
Way too many portraits around your home? Try switching a few of your images into skill using the Waterlogue app! That is a sensible way to use your images, but provide them with another look. My interior design friend recommends exhibiting artwork or still life/food in your kitchen, rather than portraits. A graphic altered through this application might be considered a good alternative. Here's an example of an image turned into fine art using the Waterlogue app. (Image by Liz Behm)
Choose photos to show that were taken in that one room of your home. For example, food picture taking in your kitchen, lifestyle images in the living room, bath images of your kids in the tub shown in the toilet, and even more personal images in the bedroom.
The other day I decided I needed to fill the area above a doorway in my kitchen with some food images.
Considerations I created before I required the images:
How much space I had a need to fill and just how many images.
Appropriate size for this space.
The style/colors that would go well in my own kitchen.
How those images would look from across the room.
Because I couldn't go bigger when compared to a 10x10, I chose to use my macro lens and tried to capture close-up textures of the fruits vs. a far more styled shot with atmosphere that could be harder to see from across the room.
Edit your photographs to match the design of the space it'll be in. For example, light and airy, rich in color & comparison, dark & white, etc. Also, if you are displaying images along, edit them side by side in your editing program to be sure they mix well and the colour is consistent from image to image.
I did this with my fruit images. I shifted them around in Photoshop to help me visualize how they would look hung. I separated the blueberry image (usually blue) and the grapefruit (blue backdrop) with the yellow pineapple in the centre so each image would stick out and look well balanced next to one another.
