No, there's nothing wrong with having Guru's pictures at home. Infact, it is much better to have the Guru's pictures that remind us of their brave and virtuous lives than having pictures of movie or sports stars or our own photos to inflate our egos. A couple of notes of caution regarding the Guru's pictures though - one, one should know that they are an artist's impression of the Gurus and two, know that they are pictures only, so they should not be worshipped like the Guru - this would amount to idolatory, akin to the Hindu's style of worshipping.
