There's a lot of truth to the saying that "A picture is worth a thousand words." So, if you are planning on displaying some of your treasured travel photos, don't overdue it. No one has the attention span for thousands of words or, for that matter, dozens of photos.

Here's a better approach. While photographing a recent project by Robert McArthur Studios and Professional Building Group, I admired this simple display in an upstairs hallway. The carefully edited images and stylish, handwritten labels make the framed shots stand out. What's more, the images can be swapped out to keep the look fun and fresh.
