Framing Trends in Austin
Design needs vary depending on the type of home you have and your personal style, life-point and budget. Austin has a wide range of homes from large gated communities to downtown condos, traditional to ultra-modern. FASTFRAME and the Westlake Gallery has all the latest frame and mat styles to provide you with your own unique style.If you are destined for a downtown loft or condo… it will most likely be edgy, industrial with sharp lines and probably made of recycled materials. With so much going on in the Capital city, it’s imperative that we stay on top of the ever-changing trends and continue to offer our customers a wide array of choices in both art and framing. Molding manufactures are producing a large variety of choices for the consumer; it’s definitely not just about black, brown, silver and gold anymore!
You can create a stunning focal point in any room by using large vibrant poster art displayed in a brightly colored frame! You might even want to consider using brightly colored frames to enhance your child’s first finger-painting project, a sport’s hero’s autographed portrait, or that last vacation destination to the beach! Using color can bring life to a room that seemed as if it were missing something before.
Another very popular trend is stacking frames to create a very 3 Dimensional effect. It has always been popular to stack a linen liner just inside the molding but these days designers are also stacking 3 moldings together to highlight the many colors inside a piece of artwork while also creating a very one-of-a-kind look for the client. Wide mats are changing the look of art these days as well.
It’s of course no surprise in Texas, that bigger is always better! With the floor plans of homes getting larger by the square foot, ceilings that rocket into the sky, wide-open great rooms, and super-sized windows comes the rise of over-sized artwork. Oversized images are allowing homeowners to make a more personal statement and larger accessories are just what the larger living spaces require. Of course, print publishers have recognized the new trend and are now dedicating their efforts in that direction. You can check out these trends in the artwork world by looking at over 60,000 available images at fastframeprints.comor come on by the store and see our original artworks. Whatever the direction of your next framing job might be, our certified custom framers can give advice on color choices, molding designs, and hanging solutions. Your space will be better for it, we guarantee it!
