Midday Muse: The Art of Framing Photos

This might not be the best option for nail-shy apartment dwellers, but I can't help but admire this artfully overdone wall of framed photos. I like how the frames follow the lines of the room and how the cluttered look is offset by the simple black-and-white color scheme. This would be a great way to display old family photos.

LOL wow it's love it or hate it. I love it. I would take away the side tables though.

Maybe for someone else, but that would drive me nuts.

This is to cluttered. I love this look on a much smaller scale.

hmmm...too much for me. It kinda makes me dizzy. I like the idea of the pictures being family members though.

I like it-but I agree the only reason that it works is because everything else is clean and simple.

I like it. as lomng as the photos mean something to you why not. plus the photos are the accents of the room and i think the homeowner/designer made the perfect choice of having neutral-colored sheets, walls, floors.

It's a sensory overload for me. I couldn't live in a room with that much on the walls. I like clean and simple lines and the black and white leaves me longing for color.

its too many pics, you can't really enjoy the ones at the top can you? I'd rather see a smaller cluster in the same idea.

Ooo, I love this...though this would only work in a very specific space (like the one pictured above). Reminds me of one of my favorite artists, Christian Boltanski.

Oooh I hate it! There's too many, I'd get confused over which to look at first :? Also having them at the head of the bed makes me feel like they could fall down on me while asleep.

i guess it works for the room, but it's overload for me.

In some places it needs more space between the frames. But other than that I love it! :)

It kind of works for that particular room, but it's too much for me, personally.

I agree. I good solution to awkward architechture. Wouldn't risk it in a room without high ceilings and alot of light. Although if I had an empty room I'd love to to that to an entire wall and leave the rest for tradtionally hung large prints with lots of space b/t them. A gallery room.
