Four ways with picture displays

01 May 2016

For Dana’s family, photo displays are a fun way to remember what’s most important in life: being together. ‘I want to remember my kids as they really are: silly, busy, creative and even messy! I favour candid photos over posed ones,’ she says. From disguising a laundry control panel (above) to a simple gallery wall, here she shares her ideas.
