Custom Framed Design Ideas

They Never Forget

They Never Forget
A client brought this beautiful photograph of an elephant in to THE FRAME STUDIO as a memory of a wonderful trip and much time spent in an artist's market being enthralled with the art.  Once he and his wife saw this piece, they had to have it. Picking out custom framing for this art was easy - it needed to be simplistic but could be more bulky to balance out the size and darkness of the elephant.  When we found this framing combination, there was no question it was the right one. The detail in this elephant portrait is unbelievable, and the framing helps accentuate it. Plus - the size o...

Yes, we can do that!

Yes, we can do that!
Two of our clients are huge Dead Heads, and they brought in this signed double album "Reckoning" that they wanted THE FRAME STUDIO to custom frame. Yes, we can do that! We worked together to come up with a framing combination that accentuated the cover art, while also making sure to show the vinyl. It was all done in a shadow box frame to allow for the depth of the records. If you need a miracle . . . we've got one for you . . . every day!

Framing Redo

Framing Redo
A client brought in two very cool pieces to THE FRAME STUDIO that were framed back in the 80s - and boy did the framing show that! (SEE BELOW. When is the last time you saw malachite laminate?) These two pieces of art done on plexi are of her and her husbands astrological signs. (Isn't that sweet?) She wanted custom frame them to update these two pieces to fit her current décor.  Working with the colors in her home, she found a framing combination that now brings them back to life and ties them together better. So you need to redo the framing for something you love?  Call us to make an...

Beautiful Layers

Beautiful Layers
We recently had something really cool come across our table . . . look at this piece of art. This art is made of 5 layers of Mylar, with drawing on each layer. The art was shipped already framed to the client all the way from India. We reframed it making sure to keep the same spacing between the layers as it was in the original framing, creating a shadowbox. Custom framing sometimes needs to be simple to show off the fine details - like in the drawing of the goldfish in this image.

Art Two Ways

Art Two Ways
We at THE FRAME STUDIO feel that seeing the same piece of art custom framed two different ways shows how much of a difference the frame can influence the way you view the art.  With this panoramic beach print, the only difference in the framing is the color of the exterior frame, but it sure changes the look of the picture, doesn't it?  The silver frame gives the picture a lighter beachy feel, while the black frame gives the picture a heavier stormy quality. It's something to think about when framing your art . . . not just if the frame goes with the art, but what feeling does it portray.

The Size of Art

The Size of Art
When custom framing art for your home, not only do you have to consider the style of the environment the art is going in, but you must also consider the SIZE of the space.  We at THE FRAME STUDIO know that too many people put art that is too small on a vast wall.  The Little's Photography portrait shown here over the fireplace is 30" x 40" with  a 4 1/2" wide frame around it.  Think of how much different the space would look if the portrait was only 16 x 20!  The space in the entry way over the chairs is much larger, and the size of the portrait is 40" x 60" with 2 frames stacked that eq...

Good, Better, Best!

Good, Better, Best!
"Good, better, best.  Never let it rest. Until your good is better and the better is the best!"  We all remember this rhyme from grade school that teaches us about adjectives. If you have ever been to THE FRAME STUDIO, you have seen our GOOD, BETTER, BEST wall.  It shows how using different framing choices can completely transform a piece of art.  One of the most obvious differences in these three pieces is seen in the type of glass that is used. The GOOD glass on the left has a special UV coating that reflects 99% of the UV rays to protect the colors of the art from fading over time, an...
