FRAMING WITH ARTIFACT UPRISING

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 new and awesome 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.

    Choosing art work is the hardest part for me too! I can never decide what to put in my frames, so they just end up sitting in a corner! I love how you styled your mantle! That bead garland is beautiful!

    Hi Bri,

    I’ve used Artifcat uprising a few times but recently noticed something in their terms and agreement. They state that they OWN THE RIGHTS to whatever images people upload. Just wanted to let you know in case you didn’t. I have a lot of artist friends who use it to print books/prints and have recently stopped because of this.

    designlovefest says:

    we did not know that, thank you so much for letting us know!

    Mattie says:

    Can you cfm what size you blew up the image to to fit in the 24 x 30 frame so perfectly? xx Mattie

    designlovefest says:
