...as the "art" on your walls?
Do you group the photos in themes, ie - sunset? beach? autumn?
And the frames?
All the same size or mix it up a bit ~ some distressed or with small embellishments?
I plan on using 4x6 or 5x7 photos.
I got the idea from our medical clinic.
One of the DR's travels and in the exam rooms, there are gorgeous photos of his travels.

Right now my house is pretty non-decorated. But in the past I tend to mix it up as far as content. Frame choices are based on what looks good in any particular room. So, no hard rules of how to do it.

Whatever you like!
In one room I use photo ledges. Since I take a lot of photos, I just mat them and then change them with the seasons or whenever I feel like it. I usually go with a theme - winter scenes, family, flowers, etc. I don't even use frames there.
You might think "unity with variation." For example, frames all the same color, but different designs. Or different frames, but the photos all of a similar subject. Or all different subjects but all frames the same size.
But really, it is whatever looks pleasing to you!

on the stairs and in the upstairs hallway, everything is in black frames, in the downstairs hallway from the foyer I have more "formal" pics but they are in a range of goldish tones and gold and black frames to tie into the staircase frames
I also really like the look of white frames on a brightly colored wall

Mix it up ... but make sure to do a trial with some construction paper cut to size. You might find 4x6 and 5x7 very limiting once they're actually up on the wall!
If I want to go smaller, I tend to print several 4x6 or 5x7 shots in a series and line them up on a bookshelf in a mix of little frames. I wouldn't actually hang anything smaller than an 8x10, though. Personal preference.

It is my desire to learn more about photography everyday.
I think a photography class should be a requirement in all educational programs because it makes you see the world rather than just look at it.
