Open concept homes provide a unique dilemma for those of us who love to display photos and artwork. The number of empty walls in the house drops dramatically. A great solution we found on Pinterest is building a double photo ledge to display some of your favorite photos. Choosing a wall that already has some lighting nearby is an added plus to help illuminate your canvas prints and framed photos. They make photo ledges in all types of materials and colors so you are sure to find one that fits your style. Check out the pin originally from chrislovesjulia.com.

On the topic of gallery walls, how about the interplay of different types of prints in this pin? Using word quotes, family photos on canvas, and a couple mixed media pieces together works here with complimentary colors and the theme of love and family. The positioning of the gallery wall incorporates the sculpted lamp and candle holders on the table below as part of the overall display for a cohesive look that fits the space perfectly.
