There is never a dull moment in the world of custom design. The Awards Project forced us to push our imaginations to get just the right fit for our client satisfying need, want and of course…delivering a final product that was completely ‘wow’!
Over the last few years to an all-time peak in 2019 we’ve seen more awareness on environmentally savvy choices as well as lifestyle changes that focus on plant-based living, farm to table cuisine, sustainable materials and finding joy in the basics. Humankind seems to have revisited its relationship with nature and in turn people are taking an internal gage. So what does this mean for custom framing?
This cold January is coming to an end and we will be moving into February. This coming month is a good one because it means that Spring is making its way in and our frame-amazing Frameuary event is about to hit Le Frame Shoppe! It also means that we get to take a look back on this month’s most popular pins.
I’m such a softy and love love. For all of you hopeless romantics like myself, here are a few inspiring ideas for your Valentine that go beyond the box of chocolates.
At this time of year, most of us are in home redecorating mode, but we can’t forget about our office. We can spend 8 plus hours working away so that space should be beautiful and inspiring. Whether you work outside or inside the home here are ideas that will keep you going.
The presents have been put away and the decorations back in storage for another year. I always find the house seems a little bare at this time of year as the bountiful holiday arrangements disappear. I like this time though because it feels like a clean slate, full of new possibilities for both my lifestyle and living space. We’ve put together a few ideas to help refresh your home while invigorating you to live the best possible 2019!
With 2018 coming to an end our hearts are full of gratitude as we look back on all the projects that we were privileged enough to be a part of. We can truthfully say that we love each and every one of them! The clients and stories that came through our shoppes inspired us, and moved us, and we are forever thankful. Here’s a look back on three amazing projects from this year.
Christmas is often tied to traditions. We all want to taste the recipes we grew up with and do the activities that warm our hearts year after year, but life brings change and no matter how hard we try to hold onto to the past, time never lets things be exactly the same. Though I embrace the wonders of change and the new fun that it offers, at Christmas time especially I still crave the memories that lie in tradition. I believe in their value, of teaching the ways, and telling stories of long ago.
As the weather chills up and we spend more time inside, our eyes wonder around the house wanting to settle on something amazing. Extra large pieces hung on the wall will do nothing but delight as they make an enormous statement in your home. We’ve put together some ideas for extra big art that you probably already have lying around.
Matt and I have always seen ourselves as entrepreneurs. We are naturally driven by the challenges and excitement that everyday holds when you own your own business. Over five years ago our scribbled down dream became a reality when we opened the doors as Le Frame Shoppe.
The word ‘montage’ comes up in custom framing quite a bit. This simply describes piecing together different items to make one beautiful end result – something that I think we do very well! :) We’ve rounded up some beautiful montages to inspire your next project.
It's the perfect time to start thinking about the Christmas countdown! We love the fun and tradition of advent calendars in our house. Every morning it’s a mad race to officially mark it one day closer to Christmas. Bring the family together with these simple DIY ideas!
Object framing has to be one of my favourite things. Capturing sweet memories tell your story in the form of wall art and the best part – these artful pieces can be just about anything!
Thanksgiving 2018. Another year of memories, smiles, people and places that make us thankful.
If you’ve ever been curious about what goes into our frame designs, we’re discussing our most frequently asked question: should you frame for the artwork or the area it’s going into, aka the décor?
We serve all sorts of clients and work on many different projects for all kinds of needs, but there is one design request that keeps coming up…
"Life is better framed" is a cute tagline and sounds great, but it means so much more. A note from the Framepro…
It’s no secret that I’m an antique fanatic so when clients bring their vintage finds to our shoppes I’m over the moon! I appreciate the warmth and character that these pieces bring to a space and wanted to show you some of my favourites!
I’m one of those people who like to be organized. When everything has a spot I breathe easy. So this DIY ribbon organizer makes me happy! There are versions all over the web that inspired us so we wanted to give it a try and show you how we put ours together.
It’s that time of month again! I’m not sure where June has gone but it did bring us our top pins, which we are always excited to share! Plus I’ve included a fun download that both you and the kids will love!
Now that school is out for most, kids from all over are going to run around and grow their collections! It’s great to watch their intent and appreciation, as they gather their cherished items, absolutely needing that one last rock! I never want to stifle their sense of curiosity and passion but it is nice to at least help them organize. Here are four great ways to display your child’s favorite collection.
Posters are a great alternative to original art and can give you that design punch for a lot less if treated correctly. On this blog, I wanted to show you that there are many ways to frame up your poster to achieve a high-end result.
We’re officially in the month of June! Where time goes I will never know. We are thrilled that you like our new BASIX line and that we’ve seen it used on a lot of pieces this month. We’ve had a busy month working on some amazing Framepro Service projects for our commercial clients and as always have been inspired by our fantastic clientele in our three retail shoppes. Here are our top 3 pins from the month that have inspired you!
