Warm Up Your Walls With HP And Genevieve Gorder! #WarmUpYourWalls @HPPrint #Ad

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!

    I remember seeing Genevive on TV quite often… but I can’t remember what show she was on. I love how those pictures made that wall POP!

  2. Such great ideas and it sounds like your were give a lot of valuable tips. Glad you had a great time.

  3. Those were great tips she gave you and you passed on to us-thank you. I totally agree that people tend to over think when it comes to decorating walls or any other part of their home. Just go with the flow and as long as you like it-that is all that really matters anyway.

  10. mail4rosey says

    I remember taking SUCH a long time to get my photos for my wall ready because I wanted them just right. I finally had to do what you said and just stop thinking, and start doing. It turned out so nice and people always stop and talk about them when they walk in the house. 🙂

  11. Oh wow I love your photo wall I have so many pictures I really want to get up – maybe one dya I shall finally get around to it 🙂 x

  12. Jennifer Williams says

    I love that idea, I have been working to decorate my house for a while, this would be perfect for the living area.

  13. Amberlee Cave says

    Looks great! I definitely need to get more pictures up of my family. We don’t have any on our walls.. Thanks for sharing!

  14. Some great tips there. I need more photos of the 4 of us displayed on our walls. This is the motivation I need, thank you

  15. Karen Hewitt says

  16. This is awesome! I have always wanted to do some prints with the same picture connecting on 2 canvases. Thanks!–Ashley Gill

  17. Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell says

    I ordered a couple of those prints and I really like how they came out. It’s a fun change of pace from a standard print.

  18. Oooh, I love the multi-image look! Inspired now to snap some holiday photos and have some cool wall prints made!

  19. I would love to meet Genevieve Gorder – you are a luck girl. Great ideas on hanging photos.

  20. Daisy Tremorev says

  22. Healy Harpster says

    I have our white plain wall in the living room that I want to give life by hanging the kids photos. Thanks for the tips!

  23. Those are some great tips. I’ve never thought of mixing my photos up before. I usually just go with color. 🙂

  24. I love those type of canvases. I have something similar in my living room. I would really like to update my arrangement with new pictures of the kiddos.

  25. Teresa McCluskey says

  26. Katherine Bartlett says

    I love canvases! I just bought one too!

  27. This came in so handy for me as I have plenty of empty walls to fill in my new home! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  28. Lean Lacaba says

    I’d definitely do this once I have my own home someday.

  29. amanda mcmahon says

    i didn’t know that HP did these. what great ideas.

  30. I love the split camvas prints! I could totally do that with an awesome picture of my kids I have.

  31. BabsProjects says

    I love to display photographs, but I don’t think I have any more walls to do that…:)

  32. C'mon Get Crafty says

    Perfect! I’m in the midst of creating a gallery wall for my mom, excellent tips!

  33. I love the photo canvases so much! I wish I could have met Genevieve I have been a fan of hers for a while.

  34. I love that she says to mix frames. We mix our frames and have always gotten weird looks because of it. I think it looks classic and warm when the frames don’t match, but “go” together.

  35. Meagan Bailiff says

    i love the encouragement to mix and match different styles of photos.

  36. I am so bad at decorating, I appreciate these ideas for wall photos.

  37. These are some great ideas to decorate your walls.
