Just got back from holiday and although I don't always buy souvenirs if I do it's nearly always picture related - this time I brought back 3 tiles which I've framed in a box frame
It started me thinking about all the others - not all of which are holiday related
Here's my totals
Lounge 26
Dining room 5
Kitchen 1
Hallway 1
Stairs 4
Landing 2
Bathroom 2
My bedroom 11
Believe it or not it doesn't look that cluttered - I have plain walls and tend to group things
How about your picture habits?

Lounge - 4 (2 of our wedding, two of previous holidays)
Bathroom - picture collage of a holiday (mostly sea/pool pics for a watery theme)
Bedroom - one pic from a rollercoaster we went on

Those are our only rooms grin

The only pic I have is one photo of Florence at night that I printed on canvas. That's in the hallway.

I have MANY framed photos I need to hang, including one that cost near 1k, but hanging pictures is an art myself nor hubby is brave enough to attempt just yet.

I do think photos add dimension to rooms, but I also hate the left over holes in the plaster.

I'm an artist so tend to have lots 'hanging' around the house,on walls and piled high wherever there is space blush

Every suitable wall has a painting on it but three is the maximum number in any wall, I don’t like large numbers on one wall personally as I feel individual paintings get lost.

A grand total of zero, nothing but paint and/or wallpaper on my walls.

A big collage frame, two printed photos of the baby, a scenic print, a small collage frame of us, a small collage of our wedding, a printed collage of the baby, printed forest screen plus 20 frames on sides. It is a little cluttered and I know some consider it lower class / tack20but I want our home to reflect our family.
I also have a ton of photos and postcards in our bedroom, and a few in the baby's room and some in the spare room and on the landing.

Lots. They are almost all leaning up against the piano waiting to be hung. They have been there for about 4 years.

I have a massive sticker of a pothole with a view of a fantastic Atlantis scene on my bedroom wall.
In the living room we have a wooden shield with the Stark direwolf emblem and "Winter is Coming" on it.
That's it.

I have three (very straight and perfectly aligned) in the hallway and they're just pastel picture things to match the decor

I cannot stand walking into people's houses and seeing it cluttered with pictures (I have OCD, not just rude)

Also think of shrines when I see lots of pictures of kids and nans and aunties all over a cabinet

Louiselouie0890 Wed 27-Sep-17 02:40:45

I have one wall with lots on a collage sort of thing. I did have to mix it up as it was starting to look like a shrine of my son lol

We have moved into a house that has hooks everywhere, they had so many pictures hanging. So far I'd say we've got 10-12 up in the living space but need to sort out more - I am a paper cutter and have a portfolio full of stuff ready to hang, just need to get round to framing it all up

LyannaStarktheWolfMaid Wed 27-Sep-17 06:41:47

Loads. Mostly prints and paintings though rather than family photos. DH is quite into art and tends to collect things wherever we go. There is something on most walls. It doesn't look cluttered though as the surfaces are pretty clear.

BabsGanoush Wed 27-Sep-17 06:53:59

One canvas. In the living room.

I can't stand lots of family photos, covered in dust because they are somewhere difficult o clean and, worst still, not level shock.

Hate to see the back of photo frames on window sill too.

Dozens, I love photos as they show our lives and memories together. Family hardly have any on display and it makes me a bit sad

I do own dozens of photo albums though smile

Enb76 Wed 27-Sep-17 07:28:41

A fair amount, no photography, all art, some of it reasonably valuable. I don't like completely bare walls.

LakieLady Wed 27-Sep-17 07:32:26

Living room: 7 (2 oil, 1 acrylic, 1 mixed media, 1 tempera, 1 print, 1 antique map)

Kitchen: antique sidereal map

Hall/stairs: 1 acrylic, 1 tempera

None in either of the bedrooms - yet!

We're almost out of wall space in the living room, one of the oil paintings is big and takes up almost the whole chimney breast. There's room for maybe 4 small pictures or 2 small and one long and thin.

ponzi Wed 27-Sep-17 07:37:01

Not one. Got all my pictures in a cupboard. Not allowed anything up here.

speakout Wed 27-Sep-17 07:41:16

I can't stand clutter and I am extremely fussy about artwork.

I only have two pictures in my house.

One is a huge canvas forest photograph in my dining room/ huge L shaped kitchen diner.

The other is a watercolour of a hare in my conservatory.

Living room: we have 4 of those long picture shelves from IKEA arranged and they are filled with different size and colour frames and they including our wedding photos, grandparents, nieces and nephews, pencil drawing of the place we got married, pencil drawing of the Ghostbusters Firehouse in New York decorated for Christmas from when we visited it, a couple of holiday pictures and a photo of two of the siblings I babysit for (eldest is 7 and had them since she was 11 months)

Hall way 2 New York Prints that are double frames with Christmas Prints on the back so they get turned round in December and a frame with two record covers in. A set of 8 bird prints and a map of the UK above the shoe cabinet and a DS school picture on shoe cabinet.

Kitchen has two fairy pictures from Gnome Land in Devon

Stairs have family photos running up the wall from DS as a baby right through until now, my baby pic, DH baby pic, siblings parents etc then at the top an original great outdoors movie poster.

Bedroom 2 New York Prints above the bed, a multi frame with DS in, two pictures of flowers and a ballet dancer.

Downstairs loo has old style postcards from Sweden, Cornwall and a framed advertising poster for the steam train in Paignton.

Sounds a lot but we have huge walls!!
