We couldn't let a good viral trend pass us by without showing you how it can be incorporated into custom framing.
With the hit Barbie movie, pink is taking the spotlight in design. When it comes to custom framing though, hot pink is not always the best option. A frame design should feel purposeful; every detail intentional to the art or item being framed. While hot pink can look amazing on the right piece, not every piece is made for it. But, that doesn't mean that you can't experiment with this trendy shade.
Colour can be added to a frame design with the mat or moulding choice.
Mats are a great way to add a trendy colour because you can control how much colour you want to add to the overall design. Incorporate pink as your primary mat for more colour or try an inner secondary mat to add a subtle pink detail.
Mats come in many textures and materials, which influence the look and feel of your piece. A velvet hued mat, for example, can add a regal sophistication to your framed work.
With countless shades of pink to choose from, there's no shortage in finding the right fit for your style, room and piece. The intensity level of pink can range from bright and saturated to a more nostalgic, muted tone.
The texture and details of the pink moulding can change the personality or your frame design as well. For instance, a laquered moulding has an elevated feel. Choose. amoulding with ornate details for classic take on a trendy colour. A wavy texture can add whimsy, while a clean lined frame provides a modern aesthetic.
Here are some ideas to incorporate the Barbiecore trend into your next custom frame design, while ensuring a perfect fit for your item, style and decor.
