For Hannah:

A photo wall like this?



Or like this?

The second one's look appeals to me more. Having said that, they have to be "real" pictures for the most part - a bit of filler is absolutely fine, but no boxed sets. For me, each one would earn its place by having a story, memory, or sentiment attached. Even if I had to make one up. : )

I love the first picture. I've been trying to do something like that with old fashion prints in my bedroom. . . . but its really hard.

I prefer the top one, it seems more cheerful to me. I'd really like to do that in my office.

I have a hard time picking one to hang much less a dozen...and yet I love the look

If chaning my name to Hannah means you will come over to my house and install one of these, then Hello, my name is Hannah.

I love these types of art walls, but if I tried to do one it would end up looking very random and cluttered.

Is that first picture from the IKEA catalog?

You have to have the right kind of walls and lighting to pull that off, otherwise you end the portrait version of the crazy cat lady.

I am getting SO bored with photo walls...

Like them all. (Though framing gets expensive as hell.)

Looks like I'm the only one, but I go for the third.

Hmm... all three are nice, but I'm going with the 3rd one.
I like how they've mixed different frames and a variation of pictures (instead of all white square frames or all b&w pictures). Kinda like I want to do at home. I keep buying frames as souvenirs on holiday. That way, not only the picture has a memory/story to it, but the frame too!

I really don't like the look of randomly hanging multiple picture with out order or balanced spacing. It is one design 'look' that is lost on me. I could live with the first one if I chose to live with one...and at one time I did.

i've always loved pictures leaning against the wall... my goal is to have collected enough crazy weird art that nobody else understands except me to plaster a hallway in my home like this someday! i think i actually prefer the mix match/organized look of the last one...

I think the first picture shows an almost ideal way to make a photo wall, if you ask me. But then again, I'm SO in to minimalism - maybe it comes with being Danish? :P

I think it's important to keep the wall simple - e.g. only having 1 type of frames. Like 1" wide, blavk wood frames, on a white/semi white wall. This gives a clean expression and allows you to be more creative with what you insert in the frame :) But as stated before - de story behind the specific item has to be something special!
