Natural/Fresh Look Interiors
With loads of people heading toward the clean and minimalist look in their homes, a natural wood frame makes the perfect adaptable frame for any home and backdrop. Light and fresh our natural frames work with this year’s colours; duck-eggs, beiges, leafy greens and neutral blocks.

Team up with Mounts
Open up your images and create a eclectic style. This works great with darker shade wooden frames with thick white frames, and lighter frames with darker mounts for a fantastic striking mix of textures and vintage feel, great for setting off your photos and prints. This style looks particularly good with frames which have been slightly distressed and black and white images.

If you’re for the more pulled together look, have a go at matching the wood in your frames with the wood tones in your furniture currently for a neat style. We have a huge range of wood grains, colours and textures at Frames Express. From matching by eye through the website, to providing samples, we work with you to find your perfect match.
Going Shabby Chic
See the beauty of imperfect cracks with our shabby-chic styled frames. Not for everyone, this style is all about embracing the look and feel of ‘other mans treasures’ and giving things a new lease of life. Originally focused around ‘preloved’ items shabby-chic has grown into a trend/look which interior designers replicate through new lines. Our selection of white ‘cracked’ and white washed frames are the ideal vintage-lovers frames.
