Framed photographs, taken by ourselves of our loved ones, have been adorning our homes for more than 100 years and they are still an important part of our home décor, despite the rise of the selfie and the professionally taken, studio shots.
For most of us, the key to making a house a home is keepsakes like photos of our family and friends.
In this digital age, we’re all putting self-taken printed images on display in our homes and we attach enormous importance to them. In fact, a home wouldn’t be as ‘homely’ without our own images on display.
This makes perfect sense – our homes should be personal to us and having pictures of people and places we love on display is a great way of doing this.
From a design point of view, what people are printing, and why they are selecting these images, is also really interesting.
Very few of us are influenced by fashions or trends, instead we choose pictures that we have a personal connection to, that bring back happy memories of a special time or remind us of a significant personal event.
This is why – regardless of age group or gender – photos of partners and immediate family are the most popular subject matters, followed by images of pets and holidays, that we display in our homes.
