  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!

  2. 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! :)

  3. Oh, thank you for that link! Love the woodwork and the hooks. So beautiful!

  4. 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!
