HP #WarmUpYourWalls Event with Genevieve Gorder

This year I plan on printing out tons of my digital photos. I have literally thousands of photos on my computer, smartphone and various storage devices. I would love to print them out and actually use them to decor for the holidays so my friends and family can see. But I wasn't sure what to do with my photos once I have them printed

Note: I was invited as media to this event. HP provided me with a gift card for myself and this giveaway. No other compensation was received. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

To get some ideas I was able to talk with Genevieve Gorder, TV personality and interior designer, during HP's #WarmUpYourWalls event. During the event Genevieve provided home and photo decor solutions to my dilemma. Here are 3 of her top suggestions

  • Get your photos off your computer and into your life – Take the time and get the photos into real life. Whether you print them out individually, make a photo book or photo wall decor, use the to update your walls. Some ideas to help you print out photos include using to change up the décor basis season or holiday or create new décor as your kids grow up and new family portraits are taken.
  • Get playful and creative with photo decor - You can change the color of your photos to sepia or black and white or add a tint to create something entirely new. Consider if you’d like to create a wall theme of just photos of the kids or a mix of people, landscapes, etc from a trip or life event. Build around a specific subject in your photos.
  • Create a photo art statement Use large or small displays to make an art statement, create a family story or celebrate a life event. To create depth, mix different sizes and types of wall décor such as the gallery-wrapped HP Premium Canvas, framed enlargements and brushed silver-look edged Mounted Photos.

    Multi-Panel wall decor is a hot trend—and now easy to do! HP’s new Multi-Panel Photo Canvas and Mounted Photos, where one photo is split across 2 and 4 panels and hung closely together, are a great way to showcase your favorite photos and add interest to any room. Pictures of landscapes or unique architecture, wedding photos and large group family photos all can make interesting multi-panel photo wall decor.

After speaking with Genevieve and hearing her tips, I took a look at some photo decor ideas using HP Retail Photo Services and it's unique same-day photo creations including:
