Frame Collage meets Mobile Photography in new Kickstarter Campaign

A frame collage (Or Gallery Wall ) is a HUGE recent trend in interior design. A recent Kickstarter campaign shows that, in framing, sometimes less is more. We ve talked a lot about frame collages in the past, and the great statement they can make when assembled in a tasteful manner.

To Frame, or Not to Frame?

Framing can become a burden for both client and artist alike. Here are some ways you can save money AND your artist/client relationships. Framing can be a frustrating task for those trying to make a living on their art. Sometimes, even the responsibilities of framing are unclear. Do you leave framing up to the client, or take care of it yourself? From the other perspective, should you frame a piece of art you bought, or place that task on someone else?

Hanging Picture Frames

Interior Design Advice on Hanging Picture Frames Thanks to our friends at the PPFA for retweeting and designer Fred Gonsowski, we found a great guide to hanging picture frames! Not only were there plenty of written instructions, but illustrations to help explain the best practices. The first step in the process is to find the natural lines in your environment. How do the lines appear in your design space? Do they align well and lend themselves to aesthetics? If not, is there anything you can do to change the lines surrounding your frames? While not necessary. it will make your framing look much more professional. Photo credit by Fred Gonsowski. Vertically  and horizantally aligning your frames. Once you ve found the lines, be sure to note the lines on illustration 4 through 6. The lines created by the frames should not be on the same architectural lines as the doors and windows rather, your installations and furniture should create the lines you ll be using for your framing.
