The Best Gold And Brass Picture Frames

We’ve had a fantastic response to our brand new art print shop Maker + Ink. Thank you to all who have checked it out, purchased a print, shared with your friends.

Funny thing: the most asked question this weekend has been about the frames in all of the product images.


Framing is like the finishing touch on art, so I thought I’d do a quick roundup of the best gold and brass frames you can find online.

There is a bit of a gap between the low and high prices and in this case, the price does make a difference in the quality.

My sister has the West Elm brass frame and it’s heavy and nicely made. See it below in her newly remodeled kitchen/dining room:


Because it’s in a prominent spot, it is nice to have a great looking, quality frame. Plus, hers is large with a big mat and really gives that custom look to an 8×10 art print. (ps. their house is so pretty. I need to do a before + after of this space).

On the other hand, if you’re needing a bunch of frames for a gallery wall, I bought a few of the Target ones this weekend and while the quality is nothing special, they are very nice looking.

I haven’t seen them in person, but I like the crate & barrel option, too. Not as big of a mat as the West Elm, but real brass and a nice size.

Also, don’t be afraid to mix metals. I’m a big fan (as seen in the frames on my piano here).

And to fill those gorgeous gold and brass frames …

Style + Scripture = Maker + Ink

Mommy-brain is a real thing. I used to be really sharp, I promise. Four kids later and let’s just say sharpness is not my strong-suit. I lose track of my phone, I can’t remember what time school starts (even though it starts at the same time every single day) and if I don’t text back immediately, you can […]

Let’s talk about Christmas Cards

You may not know this about me, but I designed custom Christmas cards for the first 10 years of my business. By fortunate connections between my sister and a very talented local photographer in Seattle, I worked on projects for some wonderful Seattle families including a pretty famous one by the name of Gates. Each year they […]

Tips on choosing outfits for your family photos

Every year, like many of you, we have family photos taken. And every year, like many of you, I obsess over what to dress my family in for said photos. Okay, maybe obsess is too strong a word, but I do think about it for a while. Choosing clothes that coordinate and allow personalities to show and […]

The Easiest Way to Update a Ho-Hum Bookshelf

Audrey’s room has been an in-process project for well over a year. (Please tell me I’m not the only one whose projects drag on way longer than expected?!) We started with this design board idea, made the first updates, added a darling gallery wall and a cute diy bulletin board.  Things are going slowly, but […]

Free Fall Iphone Covers (in updated sizes!)

A friendly reader emailed a week ago mentioning that she loved the free iphone covers I posted years ago and switches out the cover with each new season. To tell you the truth, I forgot about these darling covers! My poor phone has been naked for over a year (and it shows with all the […]

How to Wear An Ankle Bootie

I was late to the ankle bootie party. When they first came into fashion a few years ago, I thought they were odd looking and I had no idea how to wear them in my regular work-at-home mom life. Last fall, I finally came around and bought my first pair. As with most new-to-me trends, it takes […]

why I found a new rug for the living room

You may remember a few weeks ago I posted about rearranging the living room. While creating the design board and editing the post photos, I kept feeling like everything was just so monotone. Gray rug, beige sofa, taupe chairs, dark floors, dark coffee table, gray stone on the fireplace. Now I’m all about neutrals, but part of doing […]
