FRAMING WITH ARTIFACT UPRISING

artifact uprising | designlovefest

choosing artwork is definitely one of the hardest parts of decorating for me. i always leave it for last. i decided i was tired of blank walls and needed to get started on framing some photos. i loved the mood in this iphone photo that i took of my friend denise by a huge bougainvillea bush and decided it would look cool in my house. we used artifact uprising’s new and awesome float frame with brass accents and it turned out perfect! the frame is available in five sizes, i picked the 24″x30″ which is a great transitional size and allowed for plenty of placement options around my house.

i tried it in the guest room, and i liked the grey paint with the clear frame, but i decided i ultimately wanted it as a main piece on my living room mantle. the living area of my house is large and open and the mantle is really a strong focal point, the deep colors of the image fit perfectly with the wood.

when styling the mantle, you just gotta play around. move stuff in and out, step back and look at it until it feels balanced. play with scale (small objects, different sized frames) and texture (plants or flowers) and stick to a color story to make it all read nicely. i chose a more neutral color palette so that the artwork can stand out and the space feels calm. the clear acrylic frame on the photo gives the whole mantle a modern look, which i love.

i was so impressed with the quality of the photo that was just taken with my iPhone!! i gotta do more of these around the house. you can shop for your very own float frame, here!
