5 White Picture Frames That Go Beyond White

Some of our most popular picture frames include white picture frames. A white picture frame is classy and versatile, so it can be used in a lot of different situations. By combining white picture frames with a custom mat, you can even balance the basic white with a more exciting color or accent. These five white picture frames are nothing but ordinary. While they’re all white frames, they each have something that sets them apart from normal white frames. Any of these five picture frames will give your space a unique feel, while keeping the classy and versatile nature of white frames.

Looking for a white frame for your wedding pictures? We dedicated a blog post to five perfect wedding picture frames.

1. White Bead Lip

Picture Frame 1.625 inch ValuCore White Bead LipThis rustic-looking frame is one of our Valucore picture frames. These frames are made from reused materials that offer a great look and flexibility at a sharp price. While a frame this thick is often used for larger pictures, it can be made to fit any piece of art or any picture you have in mind. The details on the frame help create a feeling of ruggedness and age. Those characteristics make it perfect for more classic artwork or a black and white picture.

2. Bone Scooped White Frame

Frame 20123 2.5 inch Wood White Bone ScoopedThis eye-catching frame has a number of unique characteristics that could elevate your framed picture from decoration to centerpiece. The texture, shade, and wooden materials make this frame a one-of-a-kind. It is perfect to mix up the classic feel of a white frame. It’s not just off-white, it’s a little rough around the edges. While this isn’t a save choice that works for everyone, it can be a bold statement that works perfect when picked for the right occasion.

3. Snowflake High Gloss Ornate

Frame 2044 3 inch Wood Snowflake High Gloss OrnateThis 3″ frame is one of the thickest frames out there, and the width is fully used by these ornate ‘snowflake-style’ carvings. While the frame has a darker hue of white, it has the same classic feel as a normal white frame. The bold presence of this frame means that it’s best reserved for an even bolder piece of art.

4. Ivory With Moss Silver Molten Series

this ivory frame makes a great wedding picture frameThis ivory-colored frame adds a creative spin to an off-white picture frame, making it a creative and adventurous choice for any piece of art or photograph. The 2.5″ wood frame isn’t just sturdy and thick. It also has more depth than you’ll find in any other frame, both literally and in the way the different tones pop out the longer you look at it.

5. Metal Smokey Marble

Like the Snowflake frame on spot #3, this metal frame is a darker shade of white. Aside from the tone, the first thing that stands out is the unique marble pattern. Combined with the metal, this creates a dynamic that serves as a subtle undertone for the piece on display. At the same time, this frame is eye-catching in its own right (especially combined with a sizable mat).

Our 3 Favorite Blog Posts in December

On our Facebook page, we share a whole lot of interesting ideas and pictures. Custom picture frames aren’t just a structure that holds what’s important. They create a gateway to art, photography, making your house look great, and paying attention to detail. And that’s why our Facebook page brings all these things to you as well. At the end of every month, we take the most popular of those posts and highlight the posts in each category that got the most reaction. For December, that means a weekly photo challenge, a remodeled ranch house, and discovering all about the expressionist art movement.

Photography:

When you’re a photographer (either professional or in your spare time), there’s a good chance Christmas time includes some photography-related gifts. If you did find yourself with a few new gadgets, this 52-week challenge from PetaPixel is perfect to finetune your skills. It’s the fourth year that a challenge like that has been posted. If you’re new this year, consider it the perfect way to regularly take your camera outside of your comfort zone.

Home décor:

One of the most inspiring home décor projects is when an entire house gets upgraded. In this article from Apartment Therapy, featured on our Facebook page, you can see the stunning results of how a neglected ranch house was turned into a DIY’er’s wildest dreams. The pictures are amazing, and seeing the end result of this blogger’s journey is absolutely inspiring.

Visual arts:

Different art movements convey different ideas. Throughout history, art movements have made a big difference in how we see the world. In turn, these movements have an impact on how we see art. In art, knowledge and appreciation often go hand in hand, and Dan Scott over at DrawPaintAcademy does an amazing job unraveling the ideas behind the Expressionist art movement in this blog post.

Wooden picture frames are very popular. The timeless appeal to these frames and the ease with which they blend into most interiors makes them a staple through decades.

In this blog post, we have assembled our five most popular oak wood picture frames. We hope it helps you find your perfect picture frame, and please note that all these entries below are also custom picture frames that will fit any project.

#1: Dark Oak High Back7-8 inch Dark Oak High Back picture frame

This very classic frame leaves no doubt on what kind of frame this is. The wood character of this oak frame isn’t only visible in the color, but also in the visible texture of the characteristically open grooves in the wood. The classic nature and blatant wood character of this frame make it a likely candidate for most popular among the oak wood picture frames.

#2: Oak Honey Color

In this frame we also see the grooves and wood that make classic oak wood picture frames so popular and recognizable, but in darker tones. This Oak Honey Color wood picture frame is a few shades darker and noticeably thicker than the first frame we looked at, but keeps the same timeless, classy look.

#3: Oak with Walnut Stain

The third choice in our most popular oak wood custom picture frames, is this oak with walnut stain frame. What stands out about this frame isn’t just the even darker hue, but also the thick border. These elements make this frame very suitable for a big picture, such as a centerpiece painting in a room.

 

#4: Oak Round Top Honey ColorWood Picture Frame 1.75 inch Oak Round Top Honey Color

While the shades have been getting darker so far through this blog post, the number four spot is taken by the lightest frame yet. This Oak Round Top Honey Color picture frame has a medium-sized one inch frame and displays the wooden texture in a very light hue. Perfect for a lighter or more modern look than the oak with walnut stain, or for medium-sized pictures.

#5: Walnut on Oak ReversePicture Frame 1.75 inch Walnut on Oak Reverse picture frame

As the name suggests, this frame is a variation on the Oak with Walnut frame. In this reverse style, the walnut takes the spotlight. This makes a lighter frame, while the other elements from that frame are still intact. The classic look and thicker border still make this an excellent choice for bigger pieces that inevitably catch everyone’s attention.
