Framing Focus: THE K.I.S.S. PRINCIPLE

Many people, when they come to frame something, ask for the K.I.S.S. principles - "Keep it Simple, Stupid." (Of course, they are too polite to call us "Stupid".)

We hear you. We understand you. And what's more, we agree with you. Whether it's an oil painting, a diploma or needlework, the art is the first thing one should see when entering a room,not the framing. The framing of a painting or print is a presentation of that painting or print to its best advantage. It should enhance, embellish and emphasize the picture. It should never overpower the subject.

When we design frames at The Art Shop, we first consider the elements of the art we want to emphasize or reinforce. We then decide how we will create the transition between the picture, the wall behind it and the room around it.
Understanding you, your personal taste and the way you live, helps us. This enables us to frame a picture not only in a way you will enjoy for many years to come but in the best way for the picture itself.
