Our House: Hallway
Last we left off, I’d just shown you the entry, with my favorite wallpaper of all time. Right around the corner is the hallway, which leads to the living room, kitchen and office. Not too much to see here except a dirty floor and white walls, right?
Before I show you the after photos, I have to warn you that I am not one of those people who thinks displaying photos of themselves is weird. I don’t think it’s strange to hang your wedding photos, and I don’t think it’s a shrine to ourselves. Those are our memories, and looking at them brings me joy every day. Now, that being said, here is our hallway:
The same wall, from the other direction (kitchen on the left, living room on the right). These are mostly our engagement and wedding photos (where else will you have such gorgeous photos of your parents dancing, I ask you?!), plus the newborn photos of Chuck. Mixed in are a few pictures of our pets and our travels.
The opposite wall:
The section furthest from the camera is our Moo Card photo collage from our roadtrip, which I blogged about a couple of years ago. The section closest to the camera has a few more wedding/engagement/newborn photos, plus a series of iphone photos of Charlie after she was first born. The two square shadow boxes have trinkets from our engagement and wedding; I’m not much for keeping "stuff" around, so this was a fun way to display a few items without having them clutter up our living space.
So yeah – needless to say, I have no problem displaying photos of ourselves. We had a kickass wedding photographer, and I don’t open our wedding album. I love being able to enjoy these photos on a daily basis.
What’s your opinion? Do you display your wedding photos, or do you feel weird about it, like you’d be creating a shrine to yourselves?
