  1. Oh, goody! Thanks for offering the email option…I’ve had a hard time keeping up with my favorite blogs and sites this summer. So much going on. Can’t wait to see your tips on displaying photos! :) Have a great day, Kate!

    I love these articles! We are building a new home right now which will have a long entry hall, but it isn’t very wide. Even a slim table would make it seem tight. So I’m trying to decide if I should put a large mirror and surround it with photos to make it a photo wall. Or would all of the photos make it look too closed in?? Decisions, decisions! :)

    Hi Michelle! In a narrow hallway, I’d be more inclined to install a wall of hooks for hanging and display a photo gallery above. If space permits, yes by all means add a narrow table or even a bench. I redid a friend’s hallway last year with the same idea, it’s here: http://www.centsationalgirl.com/2011/01/style-storage-a-bare-wall-transformed/ A mirror would be fantastic too!

    Loved all of the inspiration pictures in the “9 Ways to Display Photos,” especially since I’ve been wanting to attempt ledges above the sofa. I like the idea to use both ledges AND hang pictures above those displayed on the ledges (as featured in the Half & Half section.) Also loved the visual that it is ok to use 2 ledges next to each other with a little gap as opposed to trying to find one long ledge. One quick question, though: Do you have a source for ledges??

    Hi Jessica, both IKEA and Target carry versions of floating shelves!
