Sometimes it can be tough to figure out where exactly in your home you’d like to display your family portrait. Common places that my clients typically want to adorn with portrait art include over their fireplace, in their front entryway, or a bedroom or hallway. It really depends on where you will be able to get the most enjoyment out of your investment though. If you really love the portrait we’ve created for you — will you be happier if it is on display in your family room, or hidden away in a back room so it can be enjoyed on a more personal level?
I love where we decided to display our own family portrait — it hangs over the fireplace in our family room, which is really the nucleus of our first floor (due to the open floor plan). Every time we walk in the front door, we can enjoy the portrait, and every time I come down the stairs or pass through the family room I am able to enjoy the memory of our family vacation to New Hampshire, where we had a wonderful portrait experience with an award-winning photographer.
I want you to enjoy your portraits every bit as much as I enjoy mine. And that’s why I recommend thinking about where you’d like to display your family portrait ahead of time. You don’t have to have a spot set in stone, but knowing your options will make life easier when it comes time to order your family portrait.
Here’s a picture of the entryway into our residential studio, which, as you can see, prominently features the family portrait of yours truly.
You deserve to have portraits you can enjoy not just because of who’s in them — but also because of the fine craftmanship and artistic nature of the portrait itself. Treat yourself to something more. You deserve to enjoy a piece of personalized artwork in your home!
