The right frame can take a piece of art to new levels, but deciding on the perfect style for your painting or photo, and getting it up and squared away is another question all together. That’s why you need to know about Framebridge, the budget-friendly décor website and app that’ll make sure the art you love doesn’t stay grounded a minute longer. Here’s how it works: Browse the Framebridge collection of frames (everything from burl wood to brushed silver), upload your art or send in the actual piece in a Framebridge prepaid mailer; Framebridge will frame it to your specifications and deliver it right back to you. There's an Instagram-mini frame option should you choose to devote an entire gallery wall to your feed. Picture the possibilities, if you will.

Why should walls get to have all the fun? Hang up the nail and hammer for a “lean in” moment on a shelf or mantelpiece with frames in varied widths and sizes. It’s an undone look that’s simple enough to pull off and adds a new layer to your space.
Looking for a headboard alternative? Choose oversized art and a classic black frame to hang above your bed. It’s a foolproof way to create a focal point in the bedroom without overdoing it.
A floater frame is perfect for housing hefty canvas art. The soft white tone and sharp angles don’t overpower the piece, and leaves breathing room for three-dimensional textures and shapes in surrounding décor.
A natural wood frame is as classic as they come. The key is to opt for a skinny frame and pair art that adds a burst of colour or a subtle print that lets the frame be the standout.
An inviting entryway vignette is easily achieved in three pieces: a minimalist tabletop, a pair of decorative vessels and a painting in a thin frame with a matte finish. Keep the arrangement clean and compact but to scale, so the height of the plant reaches the mid-point of the frame.
Hit a wall? If you’ve acquired an art piece that has yet to find a home in your abode, opt for a clean white frame with a white mat and see how it plays with the surrounding décor. Consider a white frame as your go-to for that instantly elevated look. Bonus: Something still amiss? Try the Framebridge Designer’s Choice, where an expert designer can provide up to four frame recommendations that will work for your piece of art.
