Custom Wall Art – Custom Frames for Art and Life
A room’s walls are its physical boundaries, but with custom wall art you can bend those boundaries however you wish. We’ve already seen how custom mirrors and custom mosaic tiles for your walls can add depth, light, and intrigue to a room. Custom frames are another way to shape your walls. Do you have artwork to be framed as a room’s showpiece? Do you have personal photographs to be displayed in a place of honor? CustomMade artisans can create the effects you want with the right frames.
If you’ve invested in a work by an artist whose vision speaks to you, let another artist help you give that work of art a home within your home. Don’t assume a frame is merely a functional, neutral space that just encases art. A well-made frame should complement and highlight the artwork. To do that adequately, it should be informed by and custom made for that artwork. Thomas Freeman of genuine treats the custom frames he creates as extensions of a painting or print. For example, his droplet frame captures key colors from the artwork in the wood inlay of the frame.
Special photographs deserve unique frames that capture the spirit of the people, places, or times they preserve. Custom made frames can embody the personality of a photograph. If you know someone who is a hockey fanatic, how about surrounding their likeness with a custom picture frame made from hockey sticks? Hockey House Furniture specializes in custom furniture made from broken hockey sticks. Start contemplating what materials would be just right for custom photo frames for the people you care about. A CustomMade craftsperson will undoubtedly be able to incorporate them into one-of-a-kind frames.
Your walls might already have spaces that can act as frames for a work of art or memento. If you have niches or picture frame moulding, take the opportunity to fill them with something original. This beautiful metal wall mural by Reflections from the Forge was made to fit inside a niche above a fireplace mantel. The metal was treated with heat and chemicals to create tones that not only match the stone that frames the piece but also reflect the natural colors and textures of the wildlife scene.
Using custom frames is another way custom wall art can help you adjust the boundaries of any room, whether you need to showcase a work of art, carve out a memory in space, or explore the unique dimensions of your home.
