We compiled a quick list of the current art and interior design trends we’re noticing to help you and your home stay on the design up- and- up!
Let’s get into it:
Floater Frames- a modern way to frame any image. We especially recommend this style of frame for oil or acrylic paintings because none of the image is hidden underneath the frame, allowing the entire piece to be shown. Floater frames are a perfect, minimalist way to add simple, clean lines to finish off your art.
Shadow Boxes- We think they are a perfect way to display any interesting and different collections or textiles you may own. We have displayed curated collections of antique lapel pins, prize belt buckles, fishing flies, signed cocktail napkins, and snake skins. Shadow boxes easily become an interesting focal point (and talking point) to any room.
Maximalism- Coming out of several years of minimalist architecture and design, we’re now turning 180 and jumping feet first into Maximalism— a new era of “aesthetic in excess.” More is more. This movement is about feeling cozy and comfortable in your environment by being around your favorite things- by hanging your favorite pieces together- even if that means mixing different colors and sizes and creating more of an eclectic look.
Using Higher Quality products- We touched on this in our last blog about revamping your current art so I won’t go too far into it again. We really just can’t stress enough how important it is to take good care of your art. People are investing more in their furniture and other home goods- your art shouldn’t be an exception. Let us help you frame your art with quality materials so that is protected and will last for decades to come.
It’s All In the Details- Little elements to set apart your art. Consider stacking frames, or utilizing fillets side your frame or matting for a very custom look. Fabric mats will add a subtle, but eye catching texture, making your art that much more special.
Custom mirrors- Builder grade is out. Get rid of the huge bathroom mirror with the ugly, plastic mirror clips. We can help you design a custom framed mirror that suites your space and your style much better! You would not believe how much of an upgrade a framed mirror will instantly give your bathroom…. Worth it!!
