Life Hack: How to Decorate (your walls) for the Holidays!

How To Create A Gallery Wall For The Holidays

We get how hard it is to design for your house. And, we ALSO understand that just as you get it oh so perfect, something else comes along that you love as much, if not more, than what you’ve just hung on the wall. Or maybe you’re a super holiday decorator and love to change out your decor based on the seasons. Whatever the case, we are problem solvers around here and we have the answers for you.

We have three interchangeable gallery wall sets for you.  You won’t even have to change out nails in your walls. They are the same sets- totally different patterns and colors but you have nothing extra to do! February through October, rock one set.  November through January, be super on point and change out your gallery wall to match the season. You may not have presents wrapped and your holiday cards are probably still sitting on your desk, but it doesn’t matter because your walls (and home) are looking absolutely fantastic.

Set One is consistently one of our most popular gallery wall sets we have ever done. Classic, geometric, and full of neutral tones with a hint of metallic zazzle. It goes in any house and can be kept together as shown or broken up into a couple of mini sets in your home. It’s our 6 piece Hopkins set.How To Create A Gallery Wall For The Holidays

Presenting Cork Boards From Delta Girl Frames

Presenting Cork Boards From Delta Girl Frames

Parents rejoice, summer is over (or nearly over) and its time to send all of those precious littles back to school. Drop them off and run, walk them in and cry, put them on the bus and have a mimosa. You do you-and lets all go a head and pretend like we’re going to stay organized this year! I know, I know, you super seasoned parents are probably laughing at me now….we have littles just entering ‘real’ school and we like to pretend like we can keep up with the beautiful mess that comes home to us. Just indulge our little fantasy today, ok?

We wanted to high five this school year and start you off right. We also know that you’re busy, bento-boxing, home-working, job-ing, sending money in for school lunch, adulating and just generally trying to manage the world, so we wanted to make this easy for you.

Cork boards are always an option with our frames, but we wanted you all to see these beauties in action. Welcome our 4 beautiful 16×20 cork boards. Is it a frame? Is it a cork board? Is it a chalk board? Well, dear friends, it is all of those things….and can change to any of those things at any point to fit the situation.

Whether you want a space to hang your child’s latest piece of art or the test they aced at school, cork boards are where it’s at.

Presenting Cork Boards From Delta Girl Frames

Pick from the 4 following colors in order as shown above:

Each frame comes with a cork board but because of the versatility of our frames, you can easily change it out and replace it with a photo. Our frames are handmade from high quality pine and hand-painted using Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore paint. No two exactly alike: expect unique sanding, glazing and distressing touches.

Happy school year! We can’t wait to see these in your homes and see how you’re using them.

The Anatomy Of Our Frames

The Anatomy Of Our Frames: What You Need To Know When Placing An Order

We talk about our frames all the time, all day long and we still have to double check ourselves from time to time.  So we know you might get confused from time to time when placing orders.  We strive to make ordering simple for you all and create great combos that you can order as is-but should your creative juices feel a need, a need for speed, then we want you get exactly what you want!

Lets discuss the anatomy of our frames! When you place an order, you’ll be asked about the size, base color, pattern, pattern color, trim, trim color, and orientation.  Let’s go through what this means.

Size: Pretty self explanatory. What size is the photo you are framing?  8×10, 11×14, 5×5? And then you need to pick either our 4″ or 6″ width.  Confused about the width? Check out this post.

Base Color: The color you want “under” the pattern.  Hint: It’s the color that goes on first.

Pattern and Pattern Color: Select the pattern you want on your frame and then what color you want it in.

Trim and Trim Color: The trim is a separate wood piece that we glue, nail, and add to the base frame itself. It’s what actually houses the photo, laying on top of the finished frame.  We worked super hard this last year to get custom trim styles created just for our DGF clients – so that we KNOW we’re adding pieces that are not only beautifully made but will add that extra added touch you won’t see elsewhere.

Orientation: Landscape or Portrait.  Horizontal or Vertical.  Let us know so we can make sure that the pattern is oriented correctly, and that back saw tooth hanger is installed in the right direction way:) Ordering a square print, just select whichever your hearts desire….its all the same!!

Lets hit up some examples for a second:  

The amazingly popular neutral pinstripe!

And then Innocence pinstripe, Gray and Gold Ikat and Rose Gold Honeycomb!

The Anatomy Of Our Frames: What You Need To Know When Placing An Order

Now, dear friends, go forth and CREATE ALL OF THE THINGS.

We dare ya.

And if you still aren’t sure – not to worry, we still love ya anyway. Feel free to email us at: info@deltagirlframes.com

Happy creating.

Staircase Stunner.no really.

Staircase Gallery Wall

Lets just take a second to appreciate this sticker that I saw the other day at Target shall we.  I mean, can I get an AMEN?!?!?!

I won’t bore you with the story about how I *literally* cried the day I left my cool car and got our minivan.  And while it’s for real the most practical car ever invented for this period of life and I’m sure I’ll miss it one day, today is not that day.  And by not that day I mean basically I hate driving it every second.

Want to hear what my hysterical sobs sounded like on that day? Ok, good.  Something like this…..”BUTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT (sob, sob, sob,) even when I don’t have the kids with me (sobbbbinngggg), people will STILL KNOW I HAVE KIDS AND ITS NOT APPROPRIATE (now I am sobbing and yelling) FOR ME TO BE BLARING RAP MUSIC, SINGING AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS WITH THE WINDOWS DOWN TRYING TO STILL BE COOL.

Now, while I WISH this was a made up story, it is not.  I blame pregnancy hormones-at the time I was 3 days away from having our third.

Moral of the story: my faith in my coolness was resolved thanks to this simple minivan window sticker. Rock on with your bad self minivan driving moms.  I know you’re still cool.

Promptly, I went home and decided that I was going to tackle the staircase gallery wall with my new cool frame set.  Its my house-its my staircase-I can be cool.

This is no joke what I was telling myself as I drug out the hammer, nails and frames. Turned on some Beyonce (on my headphones because I don’t need my 4 year old realizing how cool Queen B or their mom is just yet….) and got to work.  And then I fell in love with the result

You know how we LOVE some functional design.  We love the messy, ever changing approach to parenting.  We love inspiration of other makers.  And above all we love our families.

Lets chat about some of the stuff that makes up this staircase gallery wall. Classic black, gray, whites and silvers make up the colors of the gallery wall.

We also needed a way to make sure our littles felt included.  Adding a 16×20 cork board into the design isn’t something you typically see on a staircase gallery, but we couldn’t be happier with that choice.  Our littles LOVE it. They love that their artwork is displayed.  They love seeing it as they go up and down the stairs.  They love pointing it out to EVERYONE that walks into our house.

It also adds an unexpected pop of color into the wall and is easy to change out when new works of art come home!

Another show stopper was our adding our amazing 16×20 letter board from LetterFolk.  

We had such an awesome response from the set in this staircase gallery wall on Instagram, we decided to list it for you all as well!  You can grab the 13 piece set here!

Sing on you bad ass-minivan driving-momma (and dads and anything you drive still makes you cool in our books….)

We hear your song.

We heart-eyes Little Nest Portrait Studios

Retailer Spotlight: Little Nest Portrait Studios

Can we just go a head and petition Webster Dictionary to add “heart-eyes” to the dictionary? We simply use it way too much and while we figure it’s a pretty universally accepted verb, if “photobomb”, “ghost”, “weak sauce” and “twerk” get nods, heart-eyes should absolutely be in there.

We’ve been talking about our partnership with Little Nest Portrait Studios for a few months now. It was something that has been in the works for months and we were SO excited to launch our exclusive collections with them.

They have simply amazing custom Heidi Hope backdrops created for their studios and, in partnering with them, we were able design collections and colors that are exclusive to Little Nest Portrait Studios – SO exciting! Their new Woodlands Collection is currently in their studio, and let me tell you, it’s perfection. Dying to see the custom designs in person and snag some of their amazing photography for your home? Find the closest Little Nest location, as well as locations of all of our amazing wholesalers here.

We’ve had such a great time getting to know each of the owners and their individual styles. We were recently contacted by the Montclair studio to create something custom, yet still in Little Nest theme.

You guys KNOW custom work is our dream. Enter Tribeca in our exclusive Little Nest Portrait Studios paint colors.

The Tribeca frame is handmade from high quality pine and hand-painted using Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore paint. No two exactly alike. You can expect unique sanding, glazing and distressing touches. That’s part of the charm!

Oh! You love the tee pee? Yes, ditto. We had some absolutely brilliant friends who made this via Pinterest DIY before our sweet Baby Boy J was born. Check out their inspiration here and here!  We have grand visions of dip-dying this gem.

frame-a-palooza: 4″ vs 6″-Whats better for me?

How To Choose Your Frame's Wood Width

Delta Girl Frames offers two wood widths. Frames are categorized by 2 measurements. First, the inner opening of the frame-or the picture size, such as 8×10, 11×14, 5×7, etc. The second measurement we use is 4″ or 6″ wood width and this is where many people can’t visualize the difference. Have no fear, Delta Girl is here to save the day!!

We wanted you all to see the difference, hung on a wall side by side. This is our beautiful white wash with a Colonial trim in Tradewinds. Both frames have an inner opening of 8×10 but the one on the left is made with our 6″ wood width and the one on the right with our 4″ wood width.

How To Choose Your Frame's Wood Width

Can we take a second to chat about the washed frames first?  They are beautiful and each are completely unique. (hence the hand painted) This is a perfect example of how two different white wash frames each take on super unique detail and look slightly different. Equally as beautiful as well as individually unique. Perfection-we love a good wash (the wash can be done in any color as well!  Just ask us and we’ll get you a custom listing set up!)

Right off the bat, you can see the difference in wood width size even though they are framing the exact same size picture (image courtesy of Jenn Hopkins Photography.)

How To Choose Your Frame's Wood Width

Both make a different statement and there’s a time and place for both of them!

     How To Choose Your Frame's Wood Width                 How To Choose Your Frame's Wood Width

Why should I pick a 6″ frame?

-If you love a good statement piece, doesn’t matter if its a solid, wash, wood, or pattern, go with 6″ every time.

-If you have a bigger space that you are trying to fill.  I mean, bigger is always better right?

-If you have a single smaller wall and just have space for one frame.  Go for the drama of a larger piece!

-If you’re going to select these larger scale patterns (Ikat, Arrow, Crosshatch, Henna and Sevilla, Damask and Honeycomb), we STRONGLY suggest they be done in 6″. (They can be done in 4″ but the pattern will be cut off significantly and you will not get the repeating pattern on the frame. If you would like to see what Honeycomb looks like in 4″, check out this set.)

Why should I pick a 4″ frame?

-If you have a smaller space you’re trying to fill

-You want see less of a pattern or colored solid, wash or wood

-You’re wanting to mix in some classic solids, wash, or wood frames into an existing gallery wall

-You just like the look better!


Examples of 4″ and 6″ mixed together

Serenity Collection, for the win  

Austin Collection is such a beautful neutral set

And finally, Piper collection, because, Cork Board.  Obviously.

Meet Sevilla

Frame Spotlight: Sevilla

We love getting to debut new patterns and this one is kind of dreamy, Delta Friends. Meet Sevilla. She’s got a bit of Spanish influence. She’s fierce and fancy and we kind of love that about her. This frame shown below is a beautiful 6″ wood width 5×7 frame with our gold trim. All of the details can be found here!

Frame Spotlight: Sevilla

(Thanks to Lori Nordstrum Photo for the image showcase!)

Our frames are finished with different trims and we decided it was time to showcase some of them and show you all just how perfectly each goes with a frame.  This bold patterned frame can handle so many different trims and colors.

First, a no trim frame just so you can see the pattern in all of its beauty!

Frame Spotlight: Sevilla

Ok, now lets see what happens when we pop a little tiny dot trim on her in a coordinating color.

Beautiful, basic and easy. It showcases this pattern in all its glory.

    Frame Spotlight: Sevilla

But, what happens if we like the bigger trims?? Here’s the same frame with a coordinating black trim in our larger crown trim.  The Sevilla takes on a whole new look with the addition of the thicker frame. A show stopper for sure!

Frame Spotlight: Sevilla

Since color is kind of our middle name, we wanted to show you this pattern with a colored trim.  So many people are worried about making the trim a color and “taking away” from the frame pattern.  Not possibly, my friends, just not possible.  This is our large dot trim in green… but oh how this could easily be a happy pink, bold yellow, or sassy blue. Any pop of color for the win!

Frame Spotlight: Sevilla

And last, we wanted to show you the Sevilla frame finished with a traditional gold trim but in one of our thicker trim styles.  This lotus trim was just recently added to our line up and to say we’re obsessed with it is a mild understatement.  Floral on floral, yes please.

Frame Spotlight: Sevilla

Don’t be afraid of the trim!  Don’t be afraid of color!  Find your personal style and go with it.  It will look absolutely amazing any way you finish it!  If you decide you want to grab this gem, but prefer a different trim style or color other than whats listed just let us know at checkout and we’ll get it changed over for you!

Happy trimming! We can’t wait to see what you all put together!
