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.

A Long Way to Go

A Long Way to Go
A client of THE FRAME STUDIO brought this beautiful silk embroidery all the way from his home in China, where he lived for a number of years.  This 28" x 43" silk embroidery took one artist over two years to complete.  Just let that sink in for a moment - 2 years. Our client loved the piece, but the frame it was originally in was very old world, which did not work with his new modern Florida environment.  We helped him pick out a custom frame that was modern enough to work with the room, but still had a little old world charm to work with the art.  The combination works great.  We wished we...

Love from a Gondola

Love from a Gondola
Our very own Bari Wiggins took these photos on a recent vacation of a lifetime through Italy.  Once she chose the four photos she wanted on her wall, she had Little's Photography print them on metallic paper to get the proper "glow" for the water, and then chose custom framing with THE FRAME STUDIO to get the proper age and "Italian-ness" that she was looking for. We think they turned out beautifully, and would love to go visit them on her wall anytime we wanted to escape to Italy!

Updating an Old Love

Updating an Old Love
A client recently brought in this painting of a koala that she had framed back in 1979.  She was still in love with the painting, but was looking for a more updated design that could work along with her new living room. We at THE FRAME STUDIO found a custom framing combination that would work with her new rustic grey living room.  The shift in colors updated the look - that avocado bottom mat was so 70s - while making the koala the warmest part of the design, drawing your eye inward.  We also evened the matting on all sides to give the piece more balance.  Changing the regular glass to Cons...

Captivating Art

Captivating Art
We at THE FRAME STUDIO had a lot of fun with two cool client's of ours who have a three very interesting paintings done by artist Loui Jover.  Their idea was to frame the art to protect them after the damage that they had sustained while being unframed and folded during numerous moves. The art was so powerful, that simplicity became the key for the custom framing package.  A modern bright glossy white frame was used to contrast the aged and weathered look of the pieces to give them a more polished look.  Our client's loved the look, and so do we.

Back to Nature

Back to Nature
We at The Frame Studio love nature.  Even more so, we love framing anything nature related.  With this Torres del Paine print that a client recently brought in, we really love the combination of  the rugged linen textured top mat combined with the smooth shocking orange underneath paired with the weathered black frame to make an amazing custom framed piece.  It really makes us want to put on our hiking boots and do nature stuff!

Michael Jackson and His Art

Michael Jackson and His Art
We at The Frame Studio are always fascinated by singers who are also artists.  Is it possible to have that much talent in one person?  Sure!  Look at John Lennon, Jerry Garcia, or Marilyn Manson - their art even seems to echo their music in mood and ease.  What about Michael Jackson?  Well, a new client came in to The Frame Studio recently to frame two of Michael Jackson's prints.  We had no idea that he was an artist, too!  Working along with the client, we found great custom framing combinations for both pieces. The glossy black frame accentuates the swirling lines of the image, while the pi...
