At Fabulous Frames & Art, custom framing is our business! We always have a lot of fun finding just the perfect solution for your piece of art or sentimental keepsake. Today, let’s take a look at the same Charley Harper serigraph framed in three different ways.


The print is entitled Cottontail in a Cotton Field. In Tula’s Los Angeles home, it’s framed with a chunky black wood frame and a stark white mat for a gallery-style presentation; check out more awesome eye candy on her blog, Whorange.

Here is the same serigraph, this time in the Cincinnati live/work loft of Maya and Michael of VisuaLingual. See more photos of their home on Flickr, their home tour on Apartment Therapy, and their studio blog for more of what inspires their own work. The frame is a simple, wide black wood but, this time, the mat is a mottled medium grey that echoes the grey in the print:

At Fabulous Frames & Art, we offer this print framed and unframed. Our framed version features a beautiful burled walnut frame in a simple square profile, with a tan linen top mat and black and grey undermats, for a rich effect whose colors are pulled directly from the image itself:
