  • Anything but plain and boring

    Whoever said white is boring never realized how many tints if white are available to choose from. If you have ever walked past the array of white paint samples in a home improvement store, you may have reconsidered the phrase “plain white.” To put it simply, white isn’t just one color.

    Until recently, white frames have only been considered for beach-themed rooms or baby photos. Designers now utilize white frames and white accents in interiors as primary compositional elements as opposed to a supporting color. White frames have become the new look for contemporary images from posters to photography, giving black a run for its money.

    Plus, you don’t even need to put a picture in your frames anymore! Many designers use scatterframes, or emtpy frames with no glass, canvas, or image, to simply hang on the wall. This gives the designer to act as an instillation artist composing different frame styles, shapes, and sizes to turn a plain wall into a personalized collage. Even if you don’t like white, it provides a perfect base for you to add your own taste of color.

    Luckily for you, we have a variety of white frames, from basic flat to glossy and ornate. We have just recently added frame #550286 as our newest sleek white frame (first column, middle).

    So next time you consider a frame for yourself, don’t disregard the possibliltiy of a white frame. It may just be what you were looking for.
