We’re in the middle of doing a little redecorating and updating around the Tait House!
Since we’ve been married, I wanted to do a family photo wall with our style. So this is what I came up with:
I took an area of the house that wasn’t really being used for much. It’s an odd space in between the foyer and the dining room. It’s not traditionally functional, so I knew this was where I wanted the photo wall to go. I also took a chair and ottoman from another area in the house so I could turn this into a reading nook.
I used photos from our wedding, engagement, and my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary celebration. I mixed up black and white photos with colored ones. Then I took a few fun candids that we took out and about and threw those in as well. I also found a few pieces that reflect the heart of us: An inspirational piece that pretty much sums up who we are as a family, a wedding gift that says “A True Love Story Never Ends,” a doorknob because we’re a family that opens the door to the opportunities Christ brings, and a cross given to us as a wedding gift. The cross went right in the center of everything, because we’re ALL about keeping Christ at the center of our lives!
Once I picked out all the frames and art pieces, I spent time arranging them on the floor. I wanted to create the overall flow of the pieces before choosing which pictures would go in the frames. (I printed out way more than I needed so I would have lots to choose from. The leftovers went into other frames and a scrapbook.)
And there it is! Fun decorating at the Tait House! What do you think?
