4 Ways Designers Decorate with Photographs

Here are four very different ways of decorating with photographs. Let your space and color theme be your guide.


1. Find a close up with the colors you are looking to bring into the room.
A NASA photograph of Saturn's rings hangs on the wall in the living room of the apartment shared by design gurus Bob Willliams and Mitchell Gold. The photograph brings the elements of the living room together.

2. Creative placement of similar theme.
Susan Penzner's photo collection, mostly portraits of women, provides an arresting backdrop in the high-ceilinged living/dining space in her reinvented 1965 Sag Harbor rambler.



3. Sometimes more is more.
Photographs line the main hallway drawing the eye forward and adding a familial and cozy element to this 10,000-square-foot compound in the Hamptons.



4. The element of surprise
In the bright kitchen above the fireplace, an elephant embryo photograph by Montauk neighbor Peter Beard takes center stage in a charming home overlooking a Montauk bluff. This photograph is a great conversation starter.
