Nix the Pix?

Thursday, October 3, 2013

Interior decorators and designers have mixed opinions about displaying family photos in the main living areas (public spaces) of the house.

My personal opinion is that photos are fine for family rooms (which tend to be more casual, relaxed spaces), and home offices and bedrooms. I really feel they are not necessary decor for living, dining rooms or kitchens.

Many of the decor magazines are into photo galleries -- walls with LOTS of photo frames!

Are you a photo fan? What's your preference when it comes to framed photos?

When I coach my clients on preparing their home for sale - it's zero tolerance when it comes to personal photos. They ALL should be packed away! Let the buyer picture themselves in the home!!
