I’m lucky to have a few family members who dabble in photography – and as I look at what exactly the guy and I will be decorating our new place’s walls with I’m drawn back to their work…
It’s not only as gorgeous as something you’d find for $$$ at some shi-shi store – it gives it that personal element that can transform your place from cold to comfortable.
I highly recommend checking out what your aunt/cousin/sibling have snapped before dropping lots of cash on some ‘established’ photographers work – chances are they’ll not only give it to you for free, they’ll be psyched you want to decorate with their work! (plus DIY framing and you’ve just got a great (few) piece(s) for pennies) and you might get that awesome family member some unexpected business from friends and visitors!
speaking of…. like the 2nd photo? that and more here!
