Every time I travel, I always find myself taking  photos, picking up local  music posters, and selecting at least a few nostalgic  postcards from each flea market visited. I’ve never been one to keep my treasures hidden away in drawers or left scattered around the house. Instead, I find great pleasure in both displaying my findings and the way in which I show them off. Here are five of my favourite framing ideas for photos,  memorabilia and more.

01. Reclaimed Rustic Wood

Available in a wide range of sizes and finishes, this style of framing is a great option for photos in  black & white, or softer sepia tones. Try combining three wallet sized vintage photos together in one frame for a more modern, scrapbook effect without ever having to turn a page.

02. Mix & Match Antique Metal

For music posters and smaller items such as polaroids or ticket stubs from an unforgettable concert, try mixing a variety of  gold gilded styles altogether along one wall, or grouped together on a tabletop display to keep them safe and add some elevation.

03. Natural Linen Canvas

For an understated effect with elegant, organic texture; try using a cloth-covered frame in a weave of natural linen. This style of frame works beautifully for both photos and  paintings, adding in a bit of serene negative space to surround your most cherished works of art.

04. Naturally Tanned Leather

Leather is the perfect, simple way to add a bit of richness and depth to any interior. A versatile choice (available in a range from creamy white hide to darkly tanned chestnut brown), leather frames are crafted to develop unique, custom patinas over time. This hand-treated effect allows them to age beautifully along with the memories their four corners contain.

05. Marble or Concrete Card Holders

If you want your photos easily within reach, yet still on display for all around you to see, try using a  card holder as a unique alternative to the traditional glass covered casing. The geometric accessory comes in many different shapes and will add a third dimension to your home or office display. Try a semi-circle silhouette in light Carrera marble for minimal interiors, or a triangular fixture in cool, dove grey concrete for a more industrial feel.
