Do you love to travel? If so, you’re sure to have taken tons of pictures (including Insta-worthy selfies) that are stored in your camera roll yearning to be set free and discovered. And when it comes to travel photography, there’s a certain charm and beauty in displaying them in your home. It’s also a great way to introduce guests to your world. So if you’re looking for ideas on how to display your travel photos in a fun, unique, and eye-catching way, we’re sharing different options on how to decorate your space with travel photography. These ideas are simple and shouldn’t take long to finish.They’re also the perfect options when it comes to sprucing up your home for the season or revamping your area with a fresh, personable, and eccentric look.
Print your photos on glass
If you’re looking for a sleek, modern, and contemporary look, turn your travel photos into frameless glass prints. You can display them on your walls or prop them up with a Print Stand. With glass prints, your images will have depth and vivid color that will have you reminiscing about your time away.
Design a photo gallery wall
Photo Walls are a beautiful way to display your images, while diving into your creativity when it comes to placement. Plus, they can be installed anywhere in the home—from the bedroom and living room to the office and stairwell—for the perfect interior upgrade. And this doesn’t mean it has to be complex; have your favorite travel picture in the middle (for example, one with you and your family) and surround it with images of the location’s scenery and architecture. Find surrounding decor that will add personality to the pictures, and choose a layout that works for you (such as neat rows or an organic arrangement).
Deck out your mantel
Don’t underestimate the power of adorning your mantel—especially when you decorate your space with travel photography. If your mantel is in the living room, don’t be afraid to make it your statement section or the focal point of the room. Place your travel photos on its base for everyone to see. Also, create symmetry by choosing prints of different sizes, with the larger ones in the back and the smaller ones in front for a clustered look. Play around with the positions until you find your preferred one.
Create a collage corner
Have any empty nooks you’re looking to fill? This is where you can decorate your space with travel photography. Make that empty spot in the room stand out with floating shelves. Prop your work on the shelves, hang them, or do a combination of booths to create a look that’s unique. And don’t hesitate to get creative with your corner. Travel photography is a great way to enhance this part of your room, so have your images match the theme or colors that are already there.
Print your images on coffee table books
You can’t underestimate how easy yet effective it is to design your space with books. Your coffee table is where you entertain your guests. And just imagine how nice it would feel to have them browse through your book of photos neatly and modernly stacked for them to see? Coffee table books can evoke feelings of awe as many are childhood photos or photo albums. But this time, your travel photography will be the showstopper.
Hang them on a clothespin display
This is one creative DIY project that might bring you back to your college dorm decorating days. For this project you’ll need:
- Mini clothespins
- Your best travel photos (read this for some foolproof tips!)
- String (or twine)
After you print your photos, cut the twine or wire and position your photos exactly how you want them to hang on the wall. Clip the pins to the twine and hang everything on the wall of your choice. This is a fun project you can do on your own or with a group of friends.
Pin them to a cork map bulletin board
If you want to document exactly where you’ve traveled, a cork map is a great option for your home. Once you have your map, grab some pins and your photos to start placing them in their right positions. The map will be more personalized for your space and will stand out from the other work that might adorn your walls. Make sure the photos are small so that you can continue adding new ones whenever you book a flight and travel. And don’t hesitate to get two maps if needed: a USA map for the states and a world map for when you go abroad.
