Magical Frame Meaning: What’s On The Inside Matters Most!

When you look at someone’s home, office, or even car, you can usually tell a lot about them by the things they have chosen to frame. “Why do people frame things?” There are many reasons people might frame something – to remember a moment, keep a physical representation of something they love, or show off their style. For some people, framing is simply a way to create a cohesive look in their home.

Frame Meaning: The meaning behind (or inside πŸ˜‰) the frame!

  • Why do people frame things?
  • When is a photo or artwork considered “Frame-worthy”?
  • What things can or should I frame?

“You don’t just put any old thing in a frame.” This quote is often used to describe the significance of framing. When you put something in a frame, you make a statement about that object. The type of frame you choose can say a lot about your personality. Frame meaning is different for everyone – which is why Frame It Easy makes your frame, matting, and cover custom to your individual order.

🏑 Family

Nothing makes a house feel like a home quite as well as a family photo. Showcasing pictures of family members at different times and locations acts as a beautiful time capsule of memories. Whether you are framing family vacations, traditions, or outings, the meaning behind them should bring warm and fuzzy feelings every time you pass by your family gallery wall.

πŸ‘― Friends

No one can make you laugh quite like a tight-knit friend group. They know your quirks, interests, and sometimes your deepest secrets. Heck, sometimes they’re just like family. So give the extended family in your life some wall space with funny group photos and event snapshots. Maybe include an embarrassing friend photo or two (payback! 😝) for a giggle every time you pass by. Framed snapshots like these also make great gifts, especially if you capture an exceptionally silly image! Sometimes frame meaning isn’t all that serious!

πŸ₯° Feelings

Sometimes, you don’t even need a real reason to frame something. Do you like the photo or art colors, the subject matter, or does it just give off good vibes? Frame it! Create a “feel-good wall” of photos and art that invoke a certain mood that fits your space and style. Consider crafting a different theme in each room of your home to keep the moods and feelings flowing!

We’re big fans of themed spaces here at Frame It Easy, check out some of our design guides to see what moods you can conjure in your space:

Final Framing Thoughts

What you frame is an extension of you as a person! We frame our favorite people, places, and things. The art we choose is a personal style preference and the WAY we display it says a lot as well! Are you more of a minimalist by nature? You may gravitate to our Ashford-style picture frame in Black. Do you like a bit of drama and some of the finer things in life? The Granby-style frame in Gold may be the perfect fit! If you have a bold personality, a large scattered gallery wall with mix-and-match artworks may be calling you! Or if you’re a little more of a recluse, a smaller display might be just your style!

Whatever you may be, just remember that no matter what or how you choose to frame, there’s no wrong way to do it! Let your gallery walls and picture displays be as unique as you are!
