Archive for frames
Art in a home is a personal element and a reflection of the homeowners. Rather than using one specific statement piece, why not highlight a multitude of items that reflect your style using a gallery wall?
The possibilities for a gallery wall are endless. You can use a variety of frames, sizes, and mat colors unified with a central theme to create one large focal point like these framed maps.
If you’re not quite this eclectic, you can use matching frame colors, styles, and mats in a random pattern to create unity between varied themes. This gives the eye a place to rest between images.
If you’re a little OCD like myself, you can also use varied imagery placed in a linear pattern to make the gallery appear more symmetrical.
If you’re a fan of color, remember that painting the wall behind your gallery with a great color or even highlighting one specific piece of art within your arrangement can make a huge impact.
And if you’re noncommittal and can’t decide what to put in your gallery, using picture ledges is the perfect option. It allows you to easily display your current faves, while giving you the flexibility to move them around or replace them on the spur of the moment.
No matter your design style, a gallery wall is an ideal solution to show off who you are and what makes you smile!
What’s going on your gallery wall?

So the nursery rhyme reads “to market, to market, to buy a fat pig, home again, home again, jiggety-jig”. Well, we went to market and we’re home again, but there was no fat pig. There were, however, a multitude of new products in every possible category.
We perused, navigated, and maneuvered as much of the four buildings and seven million square feet of Atlanta Gift Market as we were humanly able. We were tired, but invigorated at the same time by the many new innovative gift lines, housewares, furniture, and apparel available. Now we can’t show you everything new that we have coming because that would spoil the surprise, but we thought a sneak peek would hopefully wet your appetites.
Bright new color combinations and graphic patterns were predominant in the apparel category.
Leather, grommets, and attention to details led the design trend for shoes and handbags.
Metallics, classic leathers, and beaded details inspired the direction of jewelry designers.
Large scale canvases and printed metals saturated the wall art category, while colorful, ceramic and meticulously beaded frames were seen in numerous showrooms.
Furniture design and decorator pillows were inspired by bold graphics, contemporary color palettes, textured fabrics, and bright new florals.
Self-watering wine bottles, rustic painted ceramic planters, and custom terrariums were highlights of the garden product lines.
Fun, whimsical, overscaled decorations helped us make our buying decisions for the holidays!
Since market, we are now renewed, refreshed, and reenergized after a busy holiday season. We are looking forward to enjoying a successful 2013 with our valued and much loved customers.
