Hello fellow framers! As we all know, summer is quickly coming to a close. And with that, comes all the fall things (HAPPY DANCE!). This season we’re introducing a brand new series to the Frame USA collection called “Timber”. Our new series Timber Barnwood is a great way to spruce up that She Shed, or dust off those old time, sepia-toned photos to hang around the house. It’s perfect for bringing the tranquility of outdoors inside your home. You’ll thank us for it once the weather gets cold!
Wood frames with a simple stained finish look great. Wood grain lends a rustic flavor to a room. Sometimes, though, you want a pop of color. At Frame USA there are plenty of picture frames, wood frames, metal frames and poster frames, that are available in more than just the typical wood finish.
It’s easy to find white frames and black frames, any store with crafting supplies or knick knacks will have those. Where do you go, though, if you’re looking for something in a blue, or yellow? When you want colorful picture frames, Frame USA has a number of series that come in multiple colors including some very bright choices.
When it’s bright cheery colors you’re looking for, our Colori series of wood wood picture frames is going to be a great choice. The Colori series has a medium and a large profile and comes in 7 bold colors; white, black, red, green, blue yellow and orange. These are ideal in rooms where you want to entertain, or in kids’ rooms
If you’re looking for something with a good selection of colors but with a more mature look, you might be interested in our Rustic picture frames series. Like the Colori, the Rustic series comes in a wide and regular profile. They have a darker hue than the Colori and also have a distressed look to give them a more serious feel. Dark red, dark blue, dark brown, light brown, black and white are all available.
If wood frames aren’t your cup of tea, however, we also have metal picture frames that come in all kinds of great colors. All the ones you would expect can be found, white, black, silver and gold. In addition to those, however, are some more unique colors. Our Metal II series has Old World Pewter, Blue Pewter, and Steel Grey. Our Glory Metal series includes purple and green.
These are just a few of the picture frames and frame colors that are available at Frameusa.com. If you think you’d like to explore design choices using colorful frames, come on by and click on through, you’re sure to find something you like.
Sometimes you want to reinvigorate the interior design of a room that’s maybe gone stale. Maybe you still like the color scheme and the furniture but it feels like it needs a little…something. Something to give it some new life. One trend that’s hot right now in decor is gallery walls or frame clusters. This is a method of grouping picture frames of varying sizes and profiles, though similar in style, on a wall or in an area to give that spot a theme. The idea for your frame cluster can be broad or specific. You can use framed posters, art or photos to create a sort of mini-environment; a photo wall that feels like a special part of the room. Using frames this way helps to give the room a bit of purpose and personality.
Maybe you don’t have a spare room to set up as a home office, so you’ve pushed a small desk into a corner of your bedroom or dining room from which to do some work. It just feels a little out of place and intrusive just stuck in there like that because it’s so solitary. Use the two walls that form the corner you have it in and put together your Office Gallery Wall. At Frame USA we have a number of different wood picture frames that would be perfect for creating this effect. Three frames that would be ideal for this would be our
Making sure to choose different sizes and orientations (some portrait, some landscape) choose images that are calm and neutral. Maybe black and white photos of landscape and architecture. Illustrations and line art in muted colors are also good for creating an office feel, and of course, any business certificates you may have that you like to display. Then, working at about two thirds up the wall from the surface of your desk, begin arranging your cluster of picture frames. With sizes ranging from 5×7 to 11×17 (probably not much bigger than 16×20) you can put your biggest in the center and put your smaller frames along the outside. You can do the opposite approach and put your biggest frames on the outside and get smaller as you near the center. There are an infinite number of ways to arrange your picture frames. If your office is in the corner, use both walls that create the corner. This gives your spot the feel of a separate space, not just a haphazardly placed desk shoved into a room for necessity.
Using wall gallery picture frame clusters can create interest in different settings. In the kids’ room there might be a lot of posters and colorful, whimsical art. Our
Colori picture frames come in many fun, vibrant colors and putting a wall gallery above a child’s bed would give them a place all to themselves where they can daydream happily.
In the dining room, maybe you have a bare wall that could use a little something. A cluster of frames showing family photos in a rustic picture frame like our Appalachian Barnwood frames might be just
the thing to give it the warmth you’ve been looking for.
Picture frame clusters are a fun and easy way to turn any old room into a unique gallery that says something personal about how you like to enjoy that space. Create a photo wall that reflects what you want that room to say.
