Wall Art + Display Options
FILL YOUR HOME WITH BEAUTIFUL IMAGES
We now know so much more about the benefits of hanging photographs of our children on the wall.
Seeing their photograph in a prominent location helps children to understand their place in the family and to feel loved and valued.
It's such a simple thing we can do as parents and it has long lasting benefits for our children. Independent research by Geoff Beattie and David Krauss, both respected leaders in the field of psychology, has demonstrated that seeing themselves in a family photograph is a key part of the socialising process and the creation of a child's positive self image.
HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO DISPLAY YOUR PORTRAITS ?
Most of my clients purchase wall art, a portrait box or an album to display their images.
How you display your family photographs is a very personal decision and I have lots of beautiful options for you to choose from. From simple to highly ornate, we can find something that suits you, your family and your home.
I believe very strongly that photographs should be on display in your home and the benefits to our children are well documented. However, I'm also very aware of how difficult it can be to find the time to organise this yourself. I streamline the process by combining your viewing appointment with a design appointment where you will have the time and space to make some decisions around how you would like to display your images, and then I will take care of all of the organisation.
I have spent several years building and refining my range of display options, which are based around the things that I love and that are popular with my clients, however there are other options available. If you can't see something that you really want, please just ask, I have access to most display options and can create something bespoke for you.
Wall Art never goes out of style. In the studio I have a large range of frames and frame samples for you to help you in making your frame choice. Bespoke options are also available, this can be helpful if you are trying to match existing framed art in your home.
As part of your viewing and design appointment you will be able to choose your favourite images to enlarge for your wall. I can provide suggestions for designing a gallery wall and I will take care of all of the framing arrangements on your behalf.
My classic frame is available in 4 colours: white, black, rimu wood stain, mocha wood stain. The frame moulding is made here in Aotearoa, and the frames are crafted by local artisans. I love to support and buy local wherever I can, and we have some great options available.
I love my ornate frames, they are truly beautiful and will transform your chosen image into an heirloom that will be treasured.
Select the perfect size frame for your home as a stand alone piece or part of a gallery wall.
These are always incredibly popular - the perfect way to tell a story with your images using a multi-aperture frame. Available in all of our frame moulding options, your Story Frame is guaranteed to be a show stopper!
This is a unique and modern way of showcasing your images. Previously unavailable in New Zealand at a professional quality, I spent three years searching for a way to bring this display option to my customers.
I have glass prints in my own home and they are such a talking point with visitors. The vibrant colours are eye catching and the invisible hanging system gives the impression that they are 'floating' on your wall.
Your image is printed using archival quality inks on professional gloss photographic paper, then it’s sandwich mounted between layers of premium photo-grade plexiglas using non-yellowing pH-neutral adhesive. Glass prints are guaranteed against discolouration, or UV-related fading for 30+ years. All Glass Prints are finished with in-house diamond polishing, buffing and a final hand polish!
