Tabletop Photo Array
Keep family and friends close by keeping a gathering of favorite
images on a table you use regularly.
I found this article on the Better Homes and Gardens website website and
wanted to share it with everyone. If you're anything like me, you
have lots of framed photos, but not enough space to display them
all without them looking cluttered. Try using some of the tips from
this article and do your family photos justice.

Skimming the Surface with Style
Desks, end tables, and side tables all have a few square inches
of space to spare for family photos. As a general rule, choose images
and frames of a smaller scale to not overwhelm the space. Having
a lamp tall enough to shine over all the images is a good idea;
it guarantees the pictures will always be seen in their best light.
In a personal space like a bedroom, fill a table full of images
that evoke personal memories and give you a warm feeling every day.
That includes first pictures of babies who have long since grown.
|Modest frames are desktop
perfection -- they don't
dominate the work area.
For a more public space like a desk, consider pictures that reflect
mood of a workspace: current, open to everyone who passes by, and
cheerful. Modest-size frames set images off nicely without creating
an overwhelming display.
Mix in a few mementos or favorite items, perhaps a plant or two,
to create an eye-pleasing vignette. To keep the images inviting
and fresh, occasionally change a few of the photos, and rearrange
the cluster of frames.
