Displaying magic memories in style

Capturing magic moments on camera is such a wonderful thing but I’ve always been a bit reluctant to frame my pictures because I’m never sure what style to choose and it always seems so expensive to go to a high street frame shop. So when online frame specialist eFrame.co.uk contacted me and asked if I’d like to try out their ‘print and frame’ service to print a photograph and create a frame to display it in, I was delighted!

I chose this black and white shot that I took of the Little Man on his birthday at our old house in November… one of my all-time favourite photographs.

Using the eFrame ‘print and frame’ service was actually really simple. I just followed the steps on their website to upload the image, choose a frame size and style, select the mount colour and paper style and what kind of glass I wanted to use. Each option that I took appeared on the picture on the left so that I could see the finished result. It was a great way to try out different looks before I made my final choice.

I also love that there’s an example of how the frame will look in a room setting with a sofa so you can get an idea of how it will look on the wall – very clever.

The hardest part was choosing a frame – there are so many lovely ones to choose from.

And  Isn’t this a simple and easy way to choose the frame mount?

Here is the finished result next to the french windows in our dining area. It looks made for The Barn and fits the space perfectly.

I decided to go with a traditional oak frame that would match well with the wood of our old house and thankfully it works perfectly in The Barn. There were lots of lovely modern frames that would work SO well in a studio flat or city house but I love the warmth that this frame brings to the black and white shot of Little Man and his Daddy.

The quality of the frame is impressive, it’s beautifully made and I’m really pleased with the mounting paper I chose which has a slight texture to it.

I’m delighted with the end result – a stunning frame that shows of one of my favourite photographs.

Now I know how easy it is to print and frame my photographs I’m definitely going to be ordering some more – I love displaying magic memories. Have you got any favourite photos you’d like to show off in your home?
