Design tips from David Bromstad for using photos as décor:
Think outside the box! Cluster your prints in mass and create your own
custom wallpaper; this will definitely bring on the WOW factor.
Use the Staples prints and create a stunning and unique lampshade.
When hanging your pictures make sure they are clustered closely
together to design a fabulous feature wall.
Create a story when hanging your art. This will spark conversation and
make the most of a simple concept and push it over the top.
