People often ask me what I do with my travel memorabilia, the truth is I don’t do much. I always take a lot of pictures, then I create an album and post them on Social Media and then I forget about it. Some days I reminisce and go through the pictures on my Facebook page but that’s pretty much all I do.
After seeing the picture above on Pinterest, I decided to create travel photo gallery walls in my new home. My walls will have of a “big” map of the countries where I have lived for more than 6 months and small pictures of the different experiences and people I met in those countries in different rooms.
I believe pictures are a perfect way to personalise your space and showcase the people and moments that matter in your life. There are no hard and fast rules when creating your display but it is wise to follow some guidelines.
Consider the wall space and ceiling height, is there angles, stairs, corners. There are countless arrangements possible and it’s up to you how you want to display your collection.
