Too Much?

I'm struggling with where to put some of our paintings and pictures - a few are rather large and
 simply don't suit in the lounge room since the wall space is limited due to furniture, windows or doorways ........ and with the older house, I had really hoped to gather a number of different frames to pop on the wall with various family photos ....... but now, well, I'm just not sure.  I spent hours going through piles of old photos, then having to pick ones that would fit the frames ......... and of course included everyone ......... I still have to fill the middle frame with a larger wedding photo, and also there will be another larger frame at the top
above the middle white one which will have a family photo that includes our DIL, grandchildren and daughters partner (I just have to go through the computer and print it off).    But when I look at the photo of the blank wall and then with all the family frames, I wonder if it is too much?

Sometimes the smallest things seem to be the trickiest - never did I imagine dithering around with the photos and paintings!  Usually I have them up pretty quickly, but now I think I'm perhaps over thinking it all - after all, I'm not going for a magazine spread  lol!

Still, I'd be very happy to get your thoughts ........   

Now, If I could just sort out this study/library area that is already over flowing with papers and files, photos, books and magazines, old files that need to be kept for several years and all the stationary items I seem to have acquired!!!!! ......... Yep, there are still things to sort out, places to find for things to "live" ......... and today I start a new job so we shall see how that goes tooo!

Have a great day everyone!

I like all the photos on your wall above the lounge....
There never seams an end to sorting out especially when you have moved.
Good luck with the job.

I think it looks lovely. I love to see a house with signs that people actually live there. Minimalism is definitely not my thing

Hi Sharm. I like the look of gallery walls. I think you're on the right track. It always takes a while to get used to a new look. I would say try spreading out the photos a bit more. Maybe even put some on the next wall. You have tall ceilings so I would say you could even go a little higher too. Hope that helps. :) I'm sure it will look great whatever you decide to do.

My daughter is a master of interior decorating and I'm terrible at it, but I do like the cluster of small frames around a large one. She does that quite often. She has small shelves also that she places stand up frames on here and there. I should take some pictures and post them for you so you can see her technique... not mine. I don't have a bit of wall space anyway, so it doesn't matter for me. I love what you've done with the house so far... curtains and such. It's so lovely.

I love groupings of photos....they speak of who lives within. Live with it for awhile. You will soon know if it's not working xx

I'm with you.. it takes a while to sort out. It looks great. I haven't put any photos up because I don't want it to look like my old house. Not wanting it the same but not sure what to do.
Good for you tor giving it a go.

I am sure you will get them sorted. We put some of ours just up against a wall and then I found the perfect place for large pictures on a sloping ceiling in the attic. Take care ;) x
