Family Portraits

When I was growing up, I remember seeing in a few of my friends houses and on tv a wall or hallway dedicated to family portraits. I always thought they were neat! Generations of photos lined up like a family tree, to have all that history in one place. I was very envious. None of my grandparents or my parents did anything like that, I don't even think they had those kind of photos.

Question is are these types of walls still in style or not? I so want one but I think maybe it would be to overpowering for my little space.

I am so sorry for the "no title' and stopping so short. My mother interrupted me and made it sound urgent.

I think it can definitely work, but would look better if all the frames were the same size and shape. A more symmetrical design...evenly spaced.

I know a lot a people who have done that and I think it's a really cool idea. You can either have all the frames match or use frames that compliment each other.

Well you both gave me almost the same answer. I guess I will have to give this a lot more thought. I'm hesitant to put holes in the wall and it turn out aweful.

Kathryn, I would love to have them all the same size and style. That would be fabulous! That proposal would never fly through the hubby, considering I have two boxes of frames I picked up at the thrift store. How about just the same color? LOL! I have black spray paint!

Janet, Compliment each other? Did you get some sleep? You do know who you are talking to, right? LOL!! I can't even get my feet to compliment each other!

I have a wall of family photos in my computer room. They're definitely not all the same style and size, because the photos are all different sizes. But if you arrange them carefully I think it can look really good. People love to stand and look at them when they visit.

Welcome Maureen! Glad to her you have one. I was beginning to think that it wasn't stylish anymore.
