Gorgeous metallic blush gold, check. Chic bamboo detailing, check. Meaningful gallery wall to commemorate our new home, check! These are a few of my favorite things, which is what makes it so fitting to be helping Famebridge debut their newest frame, the Lucia!
Inspired by the popular Bali (black bamboo) and Mandalay (gold bamboo) frames, which I have in my apartment bedroom currently, they’re launching a new blush bamboo frame, the Lucia frame! The blush bamboo can be described as a rosy gold and both elegant and playful–perfect for family, baby, wedding, and travel photos. It’s universally flattering on every photo, but looks especially stunning with green and blue toned images (#protip). Graduation and wedding photos anyone?!
We decided to do the gallery wall in our new family home in Pennsylvania, in our chinoiserie decorated den, partly as a celebration for our move and partly because I have no more wall space in my apartment (and about 8+ gold bamboo frames in there already…). Therefore, I teamed up with Framebridge and my interior designers (my mom and my little sister, who have the BEST eye for design and décor), and curated the gallery wall pictured here. In doing this, we discovered a few tips for curating a gorgeous gallery wall with the Lucia frame (or any Framebridge frame for that matter!).
3 Tips for Creating a Gorgeous Gallery Wall
Stick to a color pallet: I chose photos that have lots of pink, green, black and white in them to make sure they all coordinated and “flowed” when paired next to each other on the gallery wall. A good rule of thumb is to stick to three major colors and let that guide your photo decision making process.
Choose photos that evoke emotion: Even more importantly than a color scheme, pick out photos that make you stop and stare—fun family moments, special celebrations, the fluffiest photo you can find of your dog… the more personal, heart-warming, and memory-evoking, the better.
Have your photos professionally framed: Framing photos yourself involves unwrapping the frame, somehow getting off all of the sticky part of the price tag, Windexing the glass, centering the photo just right, and repositioning the photo backing and then the glass. It’s a process—which is why I’d highly recommend taking the stress out of it and leaving all the work up to the professionals—the team at Framebridge. I can’t tell you how great it feels to unwrap perfectly framed images, all ready to be hung up or displayed. I couldn’t recommend the process any more!
