Attractive Affordable Wall Frames
The local shop is taking shape and will be opening in Sonoma County, California in May. I’ve had a few people stop by and ask me about the wall frames I’m using to showcase the art and photography.
I thought it best to gather the links all in one place so I’ve rounded up the six frames that are both attractive and affordable for mid to large scale wall art.
This natural wood frame with clean lines and a subtle curved detail is available at Target for print sizes 18x24” and 24x36”, pictured below framing the Sailor’s Delight art print.
This faux bamboo frame available in both gold and coffee finish is an elegant choice for large scale 24x36” art over a mantel or bed. The gold is a hint shiny so I tone it down with Rub n’Buff in Gold Leaf. In the local shop, one of the botanicals from the curated vintage collection on Etsy is displayed in the gold tone bamboo frame.
For a modern look, these thin gold matted frames are fantastic for small to medium size art, especially for framing botanicals and landscapes. Their simple brushed gold frame with clean lines has a nice wide mat. Three sizes are available to frame 5x7”, 11x14”, 8x10”, and 11x17” artwork.
Here they are used to frame vintage botanical prints above a campaign dresser in the local art shop.
For black and white art, the pencil edge black frame by Studio Decor at Michaels are perfect. The thin contemporary frame (also available with mats) allow the artwork to take the spotlight. They are shown below with prints from the botanical collection from this older article sharing where to find inexpensive same day prints.
The low cost IKEA Ribba in white and also black in the 19¾ x 27½” works well to frame 50x70cm prints, shown below hanging in a family room displaying the Black Sand print.
These wood grain frames are available in a variety of sizes and stains are an affordable option that for any space to frame medium to large scale art, shown below are the Paradise Breeze and Leaf Study I prints framed in the 24x36" size.
