 get dining room ready for company

The easiest (and quickest) way to spruce up your space? Frames. Duh.

Ordering takes less than five minutes, and within days you'll have your art and photos delivered to your door.  All you have to do is hang 'em up. We even send you the hardware. (All you need is a hammer.) To get you inspired here are a few of our favorite dining room looks that will have your holiday guests ooh-ing and aah-ing.


Instagram Line-Up

Here Lauren Price of the Fashionably Lo showcases a gorgeous way to display our Instagram Minis: a column! It's a perfect way to fill a random wall, quirky corner, or little nook in need of some love. To get this look, select your favorite shots (think family photos, travel pics, etc.). Frame them all in one size and style, then hang in a column. Be sure to leave about 2-3 inches between each frame.


You won't believe how easy it is to get this look. We downloaded these two high res images from Unsplash (for free!), uploaded them to our site, picked our antique gold Richmond frame, and hung them up. Talk about high-impact, no-stress decorating.

Gallery Wall

If you've always wanted a gallery wall, we couldn't think of a better time to go for it. A dining room gallery wall is a great way to show off your style and help guests feel at home. Think it's too much work? Think again. We've got an awesome gallery wall service. A member of our design team will work with you to create a wall that matches your vision. We'll do all the work. You can take all the credit.

Series of Four

We can't tell you how much we adore this classic look from Bonni Bakhtiari. If you have a buffet or credenza in your living room consider hanging a series of four art pieces above it. Keep the frame size and style the same for a cohesive look. 

Statement Piece

Don't have time to worry about multiple pieces? We get it. Try a statement piece. We love the look of a large moody floral, bright beach print, or map. Hang one frame, and instantly transform your space.
