Your interior styles may change in time but family remains! This is why the decor inspired by the family values, the precious memories from the time spent together and the cute sentimental keepsakes will never go out of style.
The creative ideas for family-inspired home decor we have gathered for you will keep your precious family together and always on focus.
They will create a memory tool that will take you back to the happiest times and will speak out loudly about how important family is. And while we all know that “home is where family is”, let’s see how this thought can be visualized.
1. A Bright Light Illuminates Smiles
This creative idea turns supplies from the Dollar Store into a magical illuminating memory display. It fascinates with its simple design which lets the images stand out enlightened by the inserted in the middle candle.
Printing the photos on vellum paper has given them an authentic texture that makes them look like taken from the antique treasure box with memories.
2. A Cozy Nook for Reminiscing
What could make a resting nook more relaxing than decoration with family photos? They can be framed in picture frames or be printed out on canvas. Another idea is to recreate a favorite image on canvas with paints.
Combine the wall art with signs that enhance the family and homely feeling like “home”, “together”, “nest”, your family initial.
3. A Special Spot for Special People
If you have tried to implement organization in the kids’ world then you must know how difficult it is. Speaking about the entryway, that can be easily achieved with a dedicated coat rack for every child.
Make the setting more appealing and cuter by adding a large photo of your kids right above the rack.

4. Big and Bold on the Wall
These images have found a place in a modern minimalist home with farmhouse accents thanks to the “engineering print” method. The pictures are very clear, the background white so that the images of the two girls stand out and magnetize.
Such large art deserves a special blank wall to become the focal point.

5. Blessings Come in Threes
A weathered window frame has been repurposed to become a display of kids’ images. The blessing of having children is emphasized with three simple but inspiring words people relate to having a family with- faith, hope and love.
The images are black and white to match the farmhouse look of the frame and give the whole display a unique and evergreen value.
6. Capture the Caption with Floating Pictures
To mimic this idea you need a large blank wall where a collection of favorite and meaningful family photos will stand out.
Every image has been separately framed to be marked as significant. Using identical frames ties up the wall collage and lets each frame be an important piece of the family puzzle.
The homely look is complemented by a large farmhouse sign with an inspiring description of the home atmosphere and a large metal initial around which the frames are attached.
7. Cartoon Watercolor Personalized Family Portrait
If you are looking for a sentimental gift for a friend or for your partner, the cartoon picture recreated on the basis of a real photo, is a gesture that will be remembered forever.
This type of art can be created digitally or hand-painted. Either way, it makes the art very personal and special.
8. Clipboard Art Hanging on the Wall
This idea gives the opportunity to make yourself universal farmhouse picture displays. Thanks to the clip the images can be changed as needed. Their size is perfect to fit an empty column.
You can customize the color to suit your interior. But if you go for the distressed milky grey, make sure that the images you attach are black and white.

An antique clock finds its place on the top of the wall to enhance the vintage look of the nook. The message of this wall when tied together speaks that the key to love is family and time is so precious that it should be spent in love.
14. Family Portrait on Large Canvas
This family portrait is a photo print. You will never recognize this because of the blurring effect surrounding the persons’ images.
It is made on a large canvas and before finishing it, the seller is giving you three design options to choose from. Such a print picture canvas makes a place feel more like home.
15. Family Rules to Remember and Follow
This wall art gives the family rules a special place to read, to remind of and to obey. Each rule is inscribed on a pallet slat. The length of every slat is different in order to take up the length of the sentence.
The mismatch between the size of the slats has given the display an interesting and personalized pattern.

Every time you see this sign, it will remind you who you are and what a great accomplishment you have made- to have a family with its own story.
It is entirely handmade and can be customized to your desired size and frame color. Hang the special family in the room you spent the most time in to make it feel more welcoming and to use the opportunity to enjoy it.
17. Family Tree Branches out and Blooms
Use the tree motif and its symbolic meaning to base your family decor on. As the tree grows up, it grows large roots in the ground and spreads its branches. The same way a family establishes and grows to create loving memories together.
The tree shape is handpainted on a blank wall in the entryway. The branches are painted only in their start from the trunk to let the picture frames finish them.
The crown of the tree is recreated by the pattern of aligning the pictures. Here and there leaves are painted as a finishing motif of the branch.

As you go down, the size of the letters decreases and so does their bold degree.
21. Glittering Holiday Ornaments with Painted Names
this home decor idea is Christmas-themed. Baubles are personalized with the names of the family members. They can be hung on the Christmas tree or be separated to become a focal point of another decor arrangement where they will stand out more easily.
