You don’t want to admit it, but your annual spring cleaning unveiled a number of family photos, certificates, and other treasured memorabilia that quite frankly has seen better days. Light, air pollution, and moisture can all accelerate the deterioration of paper-based products. Without framing, your priceless keepsakes are subjected to whatever comes their way—from dust bunnies to Rover’s teeth. Conservation grade framing is the perfect way to protect the things you love.

That chunky, ornate frame was totally in style when you had your favorite piece of art framed in 1987, but unfortunately, it hasn’t aged as well as the piece itself. Give your artwork a facelift with a brand-new frame. Custom framing allows you to keep the pieces you love without dragging your interior design back a few decades. With all the framing options available, you’ll be certain to find a style that works for you!



Just like with metal finishes, wood stains, and color schemes, framing is a way to tie the design of your space together. Frames can be used to create a sense of cohesiveness to gallery walls as well as rooms that have a mixture of wall hangings. If you find that your existing frames are clashing, then consider updating your frames with a complementary look. By designing your frames with an entire collection in mind, you’ll be able to create a look that’s both original and unified.



You’re already storing your memorabilia in storage totes, why not organize them on your walls instead? The professional team at Prairiebrooke will help you design framing solutions that aren’t just aesthetically pleasing, but also practical décor. You’ll free up space under the bed, in your closet, or on your storage room shelves, and get a gorgeous new focal point for your walls. Win-win!



Sure, you could pick up a few cheap frames from a department store, but let’s be honest, you’ll be replacing those frames in a year or two when they fall apart anyway.
