Now that we're moving apartments (again!), I've been thinking about home decor. We have a bunch of family photos and artwork in our apartment, and those pieces of art immediately help a new place feel familiar and cozy. Framing artwork always makes it look a million times better, but custom frames can be expensive, especially if you have an oddly shaped piece of art. (Not to mention the hassle of schlepping to the framer.) But! Here's an easier way...
The online frame shop Framed & Matted makes it simple to design an affordable custom frame. You choose the color and style of your frame, then pick a mat to match. They have 25 frames and 30 mats to choose from, or you can opt for one of their most popular styles.
We chose white and wood frames with crisp white mats (although the blue mats would look so cute for a nursery!). You can have them mount the artwork for you, or you can take care of it at home. (We did the framing ourselves, and it was a piece of cake.) And their prices are up to 70% less than retail prices.
The finished frame is delivered right to your door—that's it! Framed & Matted would be perfect for creating a gallery wall or for framing art that is oddly sized or shaped. We'd highly recommend it!
P.S. Where to find affordable art.
