What We Framed in July

Spotlighting custom framing projects of the month

With summer finally coming to a close, we'd like to spotlight some of the awesome framing projects and memories of a summer well-spent.

From original artwork to limited edition posters, a favorite photo to a thoughtful gift, the goal of every custom framing project is the same: Satisfaction, pride, and joy over the final work of art hanging on the wall.

Elizabeth Haidle Sentient Blue Oyster Mushroom Print Framed

Illustrator Elizabeth Haidle perfectly paired our Nickel frame with her fungi-inspired watercolor of a "Sentient Blue Oyster." The delicate patina of the Nickel and other colors in our Alloy collection makes it a great choice for watercolors.

Since she already created the print, all she needed was a DIY framing kit to frame her artwork at home. We built the frame to her specifications and sent it to her empty with instructions to insert the artwork on her own.

You can check out Elizabeth on Instagram to see more fun mushrooms like this one and other illustrations that are sure to delight.

Jessica created this stylish bar cart vignette using her own original photography to create custom prints.

The White Maple frame paired with the extra-wide mat draws your eye into the photos while achieving a clean and modern gallery feel. You can get this look for your photos with our Small Gallery Square style, available on our new Popular Styles page.

This larger-than-life gallery wall decorates the offices of furniture manufacturer Wilkhahn. Their design aesthetic can be seen clearly in the carefully balanced yet organic gallery wall which features photos that are personal to the brand.

A gallery of photos is a great way to not only decorate but to tell the story of your company's heritage and history. Reach out to us to learn more about how we can provide custom framing for your office or workspace.

Parisian style framed photography by ellyathome

If you'd like to frame photos and they're already printed, we offer in-studio framing services. That's the route that Laura took with framing her Paris photos sourced from Etsy sellers. She designed her frames, sent us her prints, and we sent everything back ready to hang.

Laura chose our Kota black frame, adding a 3" mat to the largest photo and a 2" mat to the smaller ones. The frames play well with the architecture in the photos while picking up other accents in the room. The wider mat gives the images plenty of space to breathe so that they don't feel crowded by the frame.

Black and White Kids Photography by Rosie Maxhimer

Rosie designed this fun gallery wall of her two girls for an unused wall in her living room. She had so many great shots of her girls it only made sense to frame all of them as a feature wall!

The standard advice for framing black and white photography is to choose a black, white, or gray frame, but the use of the Weathered Natural frame here is a good example of why you shouldn't be afraid to break the rules. A black or white frame is a safe choice for black and white photography, but the natural wood works great in this case, complementing both the style of the decor and the photos.

We hope you found some inspiration to create your next vignette or gallery wall and we are standing by to help with any and all of your online custom framing needs.

Happy Framing!
