As the saying goes, New year, New look! If you love a fresh start like I do, then your to-do list is loaded with fun projects to redesign, redefine and restyle your home and surroundings.
At the top of my list? A major updating of my framed art, prints and photos. It’s almost scary how a new frame can totally transform a tired, old favorite…..and brighten everything around it!
Case in point: A pair of Liberty London coastal-inspired prints from a neighborhood house sale. I’ve had these beauties stacked in a corner of my office for ages, just waiting their turn for a well-deserved makeover. I absolutely love them. But their traditional vibe desperately needed a modern edge to work with my fine-casual, clean-lined aesthetic. And this fab acrylic frame from Pottery Barn turned out to be the perfect antidote to the same-old, same-old. With its invisible borders and sexy silver posts, it’s just what the doctor ordered!
And easy to assemble. Just place your print between the acrylic sheets, secure the posts, then position your frame on the wall. What’s great is that the posts not only add interest and dimension, but elevate the frame giving it a very hip, architectural look…. which totally works for me!
Try acrylic frames for a fresh, fun new look next time you’re restyling or rearranging your wall art or photos. They’re the perfect alternative to the usual traditional mat and frame options.
