LP's Tips: How to frame your artwork?
When I first launched Liza Pruitt, the first question after people ordered artwork was - how do I frame? I knew their was a need for assistance.
Framing can be intimidating if you don’t have a helping hand. Well thankfully, I met the ladies of Frame of Mind in Richmond, VA and immediately hit it off. Not only do I feel welcomed every time I walk in but they are so knowledgable about artwork and what frame works best. Inge and Miranda are my guiding hands. Each time I bring a new piece of artwork in, they know exactly what will work best.
There are no set rules to framing or right and wrongs but there are definitely frames that can elevate your piece of art and space.
Here are some quick tips:
1- Artwork with warmer tones and bright colors can never go wrong in a gold frame. My current favorite style is to float paper works on linen with a pretty and simple gold frame.
2- Cooler tones like blues or grays are so pretty in a silver or white frame. A silver frame can help highlight the softer tones. And sometimes it comes down to the piece of art and what frame compliments it best.
3- If wanting to go a more contemporary route, there are so many fun options to choose from these days. Right now, I am loving acrylic or lucite boxes. Such a clean and sleek look.
4- Then there is the classic floater frame. You can never go wrong. Such a clean and finished look without taking anything away from the artwork.
5- Last but not least have fun with it! Like I said before, there are no rules. Buy what you love! And if need assistance always feel free to contact me! I am here to help!
