Master Bedroom Photography Display Tips ~ Memories On Display

The master bedroom for many is a place of calm, rest and retreat.  Photography conveys emotions and moods.  Viewing certain photos can change the way you are feeling.  For these reasons image selection and styling decisions for a photography display is particularly important in the master bedroom. Also for these reasons, having a beautiful family photography display hung in the master bedroom can be especially meaningful.

Of course, what you choose to hang needs to be reflective of your style and the memories you have on display.  Some tips for decorating the master bedroom with a photography display:

Select photos that you absolutely love and that any memories associated take you to a happy place when being recalled.

It’s important to choose a style and work to it.  Too much going on in the framing, the display or the photos themselves may create a sense of unease that you definitely don’t want that in a bedroom.

The photography and memorabilia selected should enhance a feeling of peace and calm.


Minimalist images in terms of content or colour and large images with plenty of negative space will also go a long way to creating the right mood for your bedroom.

A few larger pieces for your viewing is usually better than lots of smaller images.  This space is not an area that most guests will go to, so this is an area for those images that are particularly meaningful to you not a gallery of your families greatest moments.

Work to a colour scheme in the room – neutral framing choices for framed photography, images that consist of colour within or highly complimentary to the rooms colour scheme.

Simple and elegant black and white will often work well in this space.
