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 …
How about a new art print from Maker + Ink?
