A Different Way to Triptych

A Different Way to Triptych
A client found this amazing triptych of an aerial beach view, and brought it into THE FRAME STUDIO for some funky framing.  The frames and matt colors are the same, the only thing that is different is the size of the matting.  All 3 pieces were framed individually, but the matting was done as if they were framed together and then cut apart.  This way they belong together in a set way, but can be spaced apart further to fill the space above the client's couch, and can be moved closer together if it is needed.

Icing on the Cake

Icing on the Cake
She's getting so big so fast!!!  Stop time (temporarily) and capture how adorable she is at this moment with a baby shoot at Little's Photography.  To top off your shoot, you can find the perfect custom framing at THE FRAME STUDIO.  This little princess came in with a special crown to commemorate her first birthday.  We found custom framing that went along with the style of the photograph, without overpowering it.  This art is now ready to hang on the wall as the icing on the cake of that special adorable day.

Updating an Old Love

Updating an Old Love
A client recently brought in this painting of a koala that she had framed back in 1979.  She was still in love with the painting, but was looking for a more updated design that could work along with her new living room. We at THE FRAME STUDIO found a custom framing combination that would work with her new rustic grey living room.  The shift in colors updated the look - that avocado bottom mat was so 70s - while making the koala the warmest part of the design, drawing your eye inward.  We also evened the matting on all sides to give the piece more balance.  Changing the regular glass to Cons...
