A family picture wall

With our family all living in the UK, O and I were slightly worried that Baby Egan might not know or recognise who his actual extended family is (and there are quite a few members). In order to overcome this hurdle we decided to dedicate a whole wall of our apartment to photos of us and our family throughout the years, including some gems of our grandparent’s wedding day. I’ve always loved the idea of a photo wall, chicly displaying all of those special moments in one place. We went through hundreds of photos and decided on a select few, had them all professionally printed in different sizes, put them into gallery white frames and organised them in a haphazard, yet mathematically symmetrical way (a huge, huge challenge involving lots of measuring, calculations and the spirit level). It looks superb and personalises the big white space brilliantly. In fact never mind Baby Egan, O and I can’t help looking at it and smiling. We love our special family.
