Sense and Simplicity: Edited photography
"One of my favourite budget-friendly ways to add character to my home is to display photographs. I love hanging family photos or pictures from vacations - they're personal, they bring back wonderful memories, they can easily be swapped out with newer photos, and they don't cost a lot.

Why not try something other than a regular colour photograph? New technology gives us lots of options, such as using an online photo-editing program to change a colour picture to black-and-white or sepia; it's even possible to order photos printed onto canvas. For my inexpensive bathroom renovation project, I printed some photographs of our Georgian Bay cottage in black-and-white, I used inexpensive white IKEA frames, and grouped the pictures for bigger impact. They look great lined up along the top of the bead board wainscoting I installed. Now, during those cold winter months, they're a welcome reminder of warm summer fun." -- Grace
