We have recently moved into a new home. A typical Mumbai apartment amidst a concrete jungle. Besides the living room, the other two rooms are taken over by adults, which means the kiddo has no place to call her own. As per Mumbai standards, there’s nothing new in that. But my four year old is used to playing on an open terrace of our previous home. So, how do I turn this house into a ‘home’ that’s inviting and engages my kid, was the question that I had to find an answer for!
I attach a lot of value to memories. And the easiest way to freeze the memories forever is photos.
At my home, major decoration happens with photos. From family portraits to our travel clicks, you’ll find the best of them adorning one or the other nook or accessory at my home. Not only the pictures add beauty but solve another purpose. Thanks to them, Baby H constantly gets to see and know her extended family (grand pa, granny, uncles, aunts & cousins), that lives in a different city.
The photo gallery that I recently added to my home is this ‘Family Time Photo Wall Clock.’ Though it was a tedious job (the clock like placement called for a lots of calculation) to get it done on a big bare wall but the final outcome was worth all the effort. It is one of the favourite spots for Baby H. Every now and then you can spot her standing in front of the photos and remembering her Tatha (GrandPa), Ajji (Granny) & Nani.
With that addition, let’s take a look at some more interesting ways to display your family photos at home…
