Great framing can bring new LIFE to a space

Dynamic décor - How to achieve a great look!

Bring LIFE to a space with a great frame

You spend much of your life inside, in your home or office. Are the walls getting a tad bleary and closing in on you?

Jazz things up by decorating or redecorating in the latest colors and styles!

If you don’t want to go the whole hog, try simply updating your current artwork and accessories for a whole new look!

Do you know how to find artwork that would be the perfect fit?

Team up with a professional framer who has the expertise to help you choose just the right frame and artwork, no matter what color scheme you prefer - soft, muted, elegance; rich jewel tones; or wild and wacky neon.

Artwork can complement your home décor in so many different ways. If wood finished furniture is your choice, a frame that closely matches might be the way to go. If you have a sleek, modern look, painted or metal frames might be your best bet.

Maximize the mats! Including one or more mats in the framing package can add interest and color to the design, and mat board is available in a wide variety of colors and textures. Window mats are a very good way to tie the colors in a piece of art with your home or office décor. Mats can be left plain or can be customized with lines and other effects.

A professional framer can even take a piece of art that does not have any of the colors in your décor and create a framing design that blends in with most any style.

Let your imagination soar - and let your professional framer help your ideas take wing.

A qualified professional framer will play an important role in the preservation of your art through the use of proper protective materials. Care should be taken in selecting a professional framer who is knowledgeable in preservation framing methods, which will help protect valuable art.

Be sure to look for the purple and white PPFA member decal on the shop door or window!
