Bedroom Ideas

Here’s a lovely setup for a modern bedroom space. The two black and white images in a traditional black and white frame design. The round mirrors above the beds balance everything out, offering softer lines. Lovely!  Visit our Gallery and Custom Frames Shop in Winter Park, Florida (next to Orlando, Florida) and we can guide you through this technique.

Wall Groupings

Here’s an example of a successful wall grouping. The frame designs for each piece are identical – with a shared horizon line, as well as a vertical line of distinction. However, the artwork is of all different shapes and sizes, adding lots of interest. In this case, we like the all white frame design, as it contrasts nicely with the grey wall and pulls out the baseboards and spindles. Really lovely!   Visit our Gallery and Custom Frames Shop in Winter Park, Florida (next to Orlando, Florida) and we can guide you through this technique.

Frame Nature Objects

Families of Fabric

A fabulous way to create a coordinating wall grouping – work in “families” of fabric and have each piece, cut in varying sizes, custom framed. A beautiful way to bring in color, and potentially even texture to your space! This is a great idea for folks who may just be starting out and don’t have a large budget for art.  Visit our Gallery and Custom Frames Shop in Winter Park, Florida (next to Orlando, Florida) and we can guide you through this technique.

Remember the Pets!

Holiday season is always a good time to take family pictures because everyone is together.  But, don’t forget the pets because they are family too.  Christmas day, cats and dogs love to play with discarded wrapping paper, which can be wonderful action photos.  Or, pose your pets with some sort of holiday theme like the picture below.  And, a portrait of your whole family and the pets could be a good historical picture worthy of framing.  Visit Florida Frame House and we can help you select an appropriate frame.  Also, we can suggest an artist from our gallery to turn your photo into a work of art in mediums such as oil paint, water color or pastel.  Our Gallery and Custom Frames Shop is located in Winter Park, Florida (next to Orlando, Florida).

Fabric framing

A large, custom framed fabric panel serves as a fantastic focal point in this colorful space! Think beyond the canvas, and consider a favorite textile as art for your space. Not only is fabric a fantastic way to expand your art collection, an oversize piece like this can take the place of a bold wallpaper if you don’t want to commit to a permanent look for your wall, or if you’re renting. Excellent!
