Take a moment and look around your home....How exactly would you describe your home decor?
Rustic? Chic? Traditional? Urban? Flea Market finds? Family treasures?
Are your walls filled with department store finds or family portraits & memories?
Everyone's style is unique to them- but each and everyone of us have someone or something in our life that gives us that extra spark. It may be your family, close friends or your furry family member you don't want to think of life without. These are the images and moments of our lives we should be surrounded with daily...adding that spark we live for. Why not create & display images of the things in your life you treasure with every piece of your heart and soul.
I just recently created a gallery on the walls of my stairway after saying that I desired too for several years. My gallery is still a work in progress, but it is filled with portraits of my children in various ages of their lives so far. Each and every time I go up and down those stairs (which is quite a bit during the day when you hear mom, Mom, MOm, MOM...), I now get to take a journey through time and be nostalgic for the little quirks and giggles. A journey of snapshots of their lives as my children. I am overwhelmed with this sense of heart-warming love for each of them even if I am frantically running down the stairs to yet another issue or homework question. It's this climb I take at the end of each day, looking at their smiles and think of them and those sweet little moments captured along the way. I treasure each of them!
Pictures and portraits whether candid snapshots or professional taken portraits are all taken with the intention of holding onto moments, one snapshot at a time. Let's get back to displaying them and surrounding ourselves with the beautiful personal moments and things that brighten the heart and soul when viewed.
When you look upon an image printed and displayed or held within your grasp, something surreal happens, you realize that someone took the time to print this image just right for viewing....and not just clicking a button and opening a digital gallery for a quick share. Someone thought it was truly worthy to be viewed more than once instead of hiding it away until the next yearly reminder by social media that that image or moment occurred.
I absolutely love seeing my children's expressions when they see themselves proudly hung on the walls of our home, or in an album filled with moments of their lives. Just the act of placing their portrait on a wall or shelf tells them they are valued and loved. That they matter in your life and to others. Kids now days need to have this sense of being loved, valued and that they matter more than ever. Let's show the people in our lives that we value them enough to have a space upon the walls or shelves of our homes.
Let's create homes and spaces that welcome our loved ones and tell them that they are valued and loved on a daily basis. All the while creating a heart-warming spot for us to look upon and remind us of what truly matters in our lives.
Let's Stop the Clock & focus on what truly matters.
Emotionally connecting images to treasure.
Timeless. Emotionally connecting. Unforgettable.
