Tips and Tricks: Decorating with Black and White Photographs

10. 06. 2016

Black and White photography will always remain a classic. It adds a serious, sophisticated tone, and there’s a hint of awe that just isn’t found in coloured photos. Decorating your home with black and white photography is much easier than you think. You don’t have to worry about matching too many colours with the rest of the environment, and it’ll instantly transform any bland-looking room in a matter of seconds. Here a few tips that you can use to perfectly display a black and white photo.


  1. Choose what you love

Do you have a favourite photographer? Animal? City? No problem. Choose what you love, find a black and white poster, and hang it up somewhere in your home where everyone can admire it. It’ll look great above your bed, in your hallway, dining room, living room… Just about anywhere in your home!

  1. Hang more than one black & white photo vertically, or horizontally to make a graphic statement

Create some visual interest in small spaces, such as a small wall near a door frame, by hanging up a row of photos vertically. Or, create a gallery-like impression in your home by lining them up horizontally.


  1. Or, create a collage

Of course you can have one single photo to create a statement in a room. If you’re more of the creative type, then design your own collage using your favourite black and white photos. You can even add a few coloured photos if you’re more daring.

  1. Choose the perfect frame

An advantage with framing your perfect black and white photo is that you can choose any material, and it’ll still look chic. You can’t go wrong with a classic black, white, or wooden frame. Look for more of our frames Look for more of our frames here!

  1. Hang your own personal black and white photo

Can’t find a black and white photo that you love? Why not choose a photo of your family, or that one photo you took on your holiday trip to Rome? You can easily change your black and white photo and print it out through our online myPhotos studio. Add a frame and you’ll have the perfect personalized photo for your home.
