I participated in a campaign on behalf of HP. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Recently we had the opportunity to attend a very special event with TV personality and interior designer Genevieve Gorder. We asked her all of our photo décor related questions which was especially helpful to me because I love putting photos up in our home but I never know how to arrange them. Now that HP offers unique, same-day photo creations including photo canvases and mounted photos, I knew that this was the perfect time to brush up on my wall decorating skills.
On top of that, the holidays are coming and HP’s same-day photo creations allow you to personalize and tailor gifts for all of your friends and loved ones. I love personalized gifts because I feel that they let the recipient know how important they are to you and that you took the time out to really think about their gift. Photos are a wonderful way to commemorate your most cherished memories.
It was such a pleasure to meet Genevieve Gorder because she is absolutely lovely in real life. First, she gave us a demonstration on the ways that we could warm up our walls with photos and then she was gracious enough to give us some tips that we could use to display our photo collections on our walls. Here are some of the tips that she shared:
- Get a healthy collection of photos printed out. Everything doesn’t have to match.
- Find 1 to 3 important grounding pieces to live in the collection.
- Let go a bit and stop over thinking it, just do it!
- The photos don’t have to be all black and white or all color. Just as in life variety is more beautiful.
- Mix frames and create balance or weight within the images.
Now you can celebrate all of the important moments in your life and bring life to the walls in your home at the same time. You can also give the perfect gifts just in time for the holidays by visiting HP Retail Photo Services. I can’t wait to put up all of our family photos and use the decorating tips that I learned from Genevieve Gorder!
