As you might know I love to photograph and especially during travels. I always like to capture memories of beautiful places I have visited. And those memories need a place at home. Most of the time I print the photo’s on a poster and frame them. But now it was time for something new.
Polaroid wall decoration
We all know polaroids, a nice way to capture memories. And for those who are lucky to have an instant polaroid camera: You probably might have a polaroid wall at home? I don’t have this polaroid camera but I like the style of the polaroids. So a few weeks ago I could make my own polaroids, XL this time, by Fotofabriek. They offered me some Retroprints Deluxe. And I love them! You can print your own photo’s by uploading them in the online tool. You will receive your own photo’s printed on 2,6mm carton with a matt finish. Because of the subtle thickness of the carton you can easily put them against the wall. But you can also hang them with special hangers to create your own polaroid wall decoration.
Wall decor for livingroom
So I received 3 big prints ( 30 x 38 ) and 3 medium ( 20 x 25) you also have one size smaller. I choose for the photo’s I made during travels. You will probably recognize some which I already shared before. The pink wall in Marrakech, fresh herbs in the south of Egypt – Aswan-, a sailing boat -feluka- on the Nile river. But also the famous pastel houses in Denmark, a palmtree in Valencia what always makes me happy and the sunset in Cairo. All personal memories and all captured by myself. So now I had to choose if I would create one wall with these prints, or divide them over the room.
And the last thing is what I did. I decided to devide the prints over the room and actually not hang them. Because I love to create layers I put them against the wall and style them with other accessoires. In this way the print can actually tell a story. I love the fact that they look like (XL) polaroids and that beside I don’t have my own polaroid camera I am still able to create my polaroid wall decoration.
Retro Deluxe prints in the home office
Beside the livingroom I like to add the Retroprints also in the home office. Especially in this place I want to surround myself with inspiration. And travel is a great inspiration source for me. I still want to create a big inspiration wall like I did with this XL cork wall in my previous office. But now I put the inspiration around me with photo’s and products. So these two prints of the Pink door in Marrakech and the Palmtrees in Valencia are getting a nice place in our home office.
I am very curious what you think of the photo’s I have chosen for this Retoprints Deluxe to create my own Polaroid wall decoration. How do you like to show your travel memories at home? Leave your answer below in the comments, I am curious to know!
And if you want these Retro prints yourself, take a look here and don’t forget to share them with me when you have them in your home. Enjoy! :)
