Five Ways to Cozy Up Your Home with Framebridge
As the cooler weather sets in and you start thinking about having people over, there's a good chance you'll be spending more time at home in the coming months. We would argue there's no better way to make your home feel like, well, home than filling it with things you love.
To help, we pulled together our favorite ways to bring framed pieces in and cozy things up a bit—to practice that hygge life and enjoy the best parts of staying in. So light a candle and cuddle up for the read. Here are five ways (and lots of inspiring photos from our customers) to get you in the snug spirit.
1. Black and White Photography
Black and white photos are dramatic and striking. They create a brief moment of awe-inspiring emotion. Think photographs of buffalo posing on the horizon or classic images of the American landscape—scenes that take you somewhere else for a second. Black and white photography can also be framed in a variety of styles. We love pairing it with silver frames, but simple black and white always look sleek and clean.

2. Dark Wood Frames
One of the easiest ways to get that cozy fall look is to add some lush, dark wood frames into your home. It's all about embracing the wood's texture along with that deep color. Dark wood frames work with most art and photos and add a sense of luxury to any room. We especially recommend checking out our American Hardwoods Collection for more exposed grains and with a clear, silky smooth finish.

3. Deep Colors
Deep, jewel-toned hues easily create a sense of richness. Get the look by framing art, textiles, and photos with plums, mustards, olives, mauves, and maroons. Bonus points if you hang it on a dark wall.

4. Classic Gold Frames
You can't go wrong when you go for the gold. Classic profiles like our Richmond and Georgetown frames feel warm and full of tradition. And we can't stop talking about Potomac, the gold frame that literally glows in the sun. Capture some of those late summer rays and bring them indoors for fall.

5. Vintage and Found Objects
We can't get enough of old, found art and objects, especially if they have special meaning and spur a great story. The deeper colors and textured edges give your piece a truly custom feel. Opt for a float mount to really show off your piece. As for the frame, you can go with a sleek modern frame for a lovely contrast or choose to use a traditional frame style.
