THE ART OF FRAMING IT!

We all love to showcase our family photos, happy memories, vintage posters or treasured art collections on our walls. But it’s an art to create an amazing visual impact on observers (especially guests) and lend a character or personality to your walls. Here are a few ideas to inspire your creativity…

A collage of black and white photo frames will always have a timeless charm. They can be of same or different shapes.

Even a collection of only pristine white photo frames in different shapes, designs or themes will look extremely classy. Take a clue from our awesome collection: http://tinyurl.com/art-of-framing

Beach Themed Photo Frames

Pure White Collage

A staircase is a great place to display not just photos but also a bevy of different kinds of frames. Experiment with wooden, metallic, golden or silver finish or any arty frames.

The Staircase of Happy Memories

Did you know that your love for art can liven up your bathrooms too? You don’t have to display only traditional paintings or photos. You can choose to frame a bright vibrant piece of cloth like in the first image below. Or you can choose to frame any random, quirky photo that catches your fancy, like the second image below!

Frame Idea for Bathrooms

Frame Anything and Everything

Empty frames even old ones can be so useful for an interesting piece of wall art! Just affix enlarged photos on them or simply stick decorative papers over them. Another cool idea is to get the glass etched with short words of your choice.

More than Just Photo Frames

Ideas for Old Frames

Combine our eco PVC tree wall sticker with photos to create a unique and charming display. Or arrange 12 different photo frames around a wall clock as shown below.

It's Time to Cherish Moments

If you want to add some color to a collage, get innovative. Create bright borders with chart papers for each frame for that spunk! If you are decorating your child’s room, create framed art for pictures of animals, flowers, fairytale characters, cartoons or your little one’s own artwork.

Add Some Color to the Frames

If you love some DIY or a personal touch to frames that cherish your fondest memories, this one is for you. Add a hint of paint, ribbons, satin bows, paper flowers or dainty junk ornaments to adorn even plain or old frames. Be surprised by the transformation!

Add Some Personal Touch to Frames

Use stencil lettering along with photo frames to create an emotionally touching or expressive collage!

Lastly, a giant photo frame which exhibits all your favorite moments from special occasions, vacations, family picnics or a friends’ night out…can look wonderful and impressive.

IDEAS TO CELEBRATE THE NEW YEAR IN STYLE!

It’s that time of the year again! And it hit me when a friend asked what my resolutions were going to be for 2015? Then again I am notorious for not sticking to my resolutions but I am famous for planning the party!! So here are some ideas that we at Uberlyfe think, will simply rock the revelry you are planning when this year ends.

First things first…bare walls no matter how beautifully painted, will not set the mood for a party. Our “HAPPY NEW YEAR” wall decal will instantly make the difference! Or if you just want your walls to look gorgeous but no theme, choose from our beautiful floral stickers for an unique interior. http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-newyear; http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-floral

A very creative idea is to display a collection of different clocks at a “hard to miss spot” in the room where you are partying. Better, set the alarm for midnight and wait for the fun 🙂

Streamers, paper lanterns or pom poms are a must! Shiny, colorful or bright and white…go wild with options.

Lights are very important…we think when effectively used, they can create magic! For instance if you frame a large mirror with string lights as shown below, the look will be enchanting. Candles are great too, see what we have: http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-tlight

Balloons never go out of fashion. Create some quirky decor with them. Hang snapshots of the best moments from the last year from a bunch of balloons. Or use golden paint or glitter to customize funky messages on dark colored ones!

If you have a bit of glitter or some shiny paint, you can add zing to everyday stuff and make them eye catching. Like the stems of these wine glasses were painted in fun colors and the blue crystal like adornment around the rim of the glasses is colored sugar!glass

To stand out from the crowd, paint shiny numbers on the drinks glasses…10, 9, 8,7…just like a countdown! Use cool, glittering stirrers to add some spice. You can make your own too with some cardboard, glue and glitter.

A sparkling disco ball never fails to cheer things up and is a must have if you are planning to dance the night away…

Lay out a beautiful table for your hungry guests…i have always noticed that using contrasting colors create a more interesting look. And it increases the visual appeal of the food, don’t you think?

Customize the food…and you won’t believe the number of compliments you will get! Cookies that resemble clocks or champagne glasses will be hard to resist. If you are serving cupcakes, make clock cutouts from stiff paper and stick them on the top!

Lights can steal the show no matter what the occasion! String lights, paper lanterns, antique lamps, candles, diyas (on Diwali)…can transform the ambiance magically! They can be bright or suffused depending on the mood you want to create.

 Floating candles or flowers or both in a shallow urn of water look extremely pretty. You can also make it a daily ritual to spread positivism around the house!

 Fragrance is a major charmer when it comes to creating a fabulous memory…use floral, fruity or other delicious smelling incense or candles to make it “feel like heaven”…

No festival is complete without food! So table presentation is crucial…bring out your best linen, place-mats, napkins, crockery and cutlery to create a memorable eating experience. Flowers in vases or submerged in water or floating aromatic candles can add an extra spark.

 Finally…the delicacies that you have so lovingly prepared will earn many times its worth when presented in a creative and eye-catching manner. So whether it’s a salad or meat or dessert, attractive presentation is always a winner 🙂
