Although they have changed a lot since the traditional wooden pieces, photo frames are still among the most popular interior decoration items, adding style and personality to our home. Frames are used for framing paintings and photographs since ancient times and the art of making photo-frames have evolved into a craftsmanship. Nowadays, we find these timeless decorations available in a variaty of styles, shapes, sizes and colors to match any interior decor. Thinking that a house’s interior tells stories about people who live there, photo frames have an important role in creating these stories. They always add an extra unique touch to a display.

A right photo frame not only will keep the photo or the artwork in good condition for a longer period of time and make it easy to display, but also it will enhance its beauty making it unique and in the same time will nicely accessorize our room. Whether they capture beautiful and special moments of our life, or they reminds us of less pleasant or less happy moments, or on the contrary they show great artwork which means something for us, our pictures represents our invaluable memories that shape our past, present and future dreams. The changing technology of the 21st century has brought a lot of changes transforming the traditional photo frames in digital ones, when you don’t have to print anymore your pictures to display them. Many of our memories never see the light of the day or bask in the admiring stares of family and friends because they are staying cooped up on tiny memory cards in most of the time, so you should consider to personalize your home arrangements by getting them out of your camera and put into the spotlight those you constantly want to remember.

The frame you choose must complement both the piece within and the exterior background. Photo frames’ style should match perfectly the wall and the interior design of the room, whilst its size and shape should balance the work it surrounds. For example, if your room is decorated in a vintage design style or has a classic decor, vintage photo frames can be the perfect choice creating an elegant and sophisticated setting. You can use your imagination and tell true stories with your pictures by creating a collage effect with a themed grouping of table top or wall photos. Be as creative as you want and use frames not only for photos and paintings, but also for anything you want such as our child’s artwork, a dried flower, a piece of ribbon, a lace doily, etc. Hope this short post gives you ideas on how to improve your home decor and make you think what pictures worth to get out of your camera.
