2017 Wall Goals

We’ve been working on this new gem for a long time now and we’re so excited to get to launch it on Cyber Monday!!  Welcome our limited edition Delta Girl & Kern + Flourish 2017 Wall Calendar!  calendarseptemberflatlay

We’re constantly on the look out for those awesome gifts under $100 (heyyyyy sister in laws…….here’s your go to idea!!)  We decided to keep it simple and clean and offer the Delta Girl frame in three colors that will work with ANYONE’S decor.  You choose from a black, white or gold frame and thats it.  The frame is an 8×10, 2″ DGF classic (overall size is11x13″).  That’s literally all you have to pick out!  The entire 2017 calendar that was custom designed as an exclusive item for DGF from the talented Kern & Flourish!

AND, my friends, as a little added bonus, the first few orders will receive this custom gold foiled print to display in their frame once 2017 is done-although its so darn cute that we’re pulling it out of our calendar stack early and putting her in a separate frame in our office right now.  Because, sometimes during the craziness of this season, we need a reminder that its a GOOD day to have a GOOD DAY!

And because we love our clients ohhhh so much, we’ve decided to make this a steal for you all.  The 8×10, 2″ frame normally retails at $85 plus shipping.  We went all in on this creation and decided this was our BIG thank you for the year.  For $98, you get the frame in your choice of 3 colors, the entire 2017 calendar, the gold foil print (while supplies last!!), ANDDDD shipping is included.  Yes, thats right.  Shipping is included. Done & done.

We love the versatility of this frame, this calendar and this concept.  Enjoy DGF the whole year.   In any room in your house.  We wanted to create a piece that lives in your space-still authentic to us and our brand-but for any and every space in your house.  We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Thank you for making 2016 such a  special year for our company.  We’re growing and can’t wait to see what 2017 brings!!!

We wanted to share a couple of super cute ways to use your frames as things other than picture frames!

1.  FRAME PRINTS

There are SO many, we mean so so sooo many amazing prints out there.  It doesn’t matter if its a one word mantra or a paragraph that speaks to you.  Graphic design or a symbol.  Frame it.  Let its beauty stand out among your frames.  Mix and match them with framed pictures of your people and watch your gallery wall grow!

4.  Canvas

We have a slight love affair with canvas. It’s amazing as a stand alone piece but it’s a show stopper when its framed. This beautiful 16×24 canvas was framed using canvas clips that we mounted before it went out to our client. Love the look? Just let us know that you’ve got your eye on it and we can get it done for you.

Show us the creative way YOU use your Delta Girl! Is it mixed into your gallery wall layout or a unique stand alone? Make sure to give it a little hashtag love using #shareyourdeltagirl so we can check it out too!

A Few Of Our Favorite Things (Winter Edition)!

Its Christmas time, Its Christmas time (ish)!!!

We love the Christmas time.  The whole holiday season.  All of it.  Theres something so magical about this time of year —  especially having littles running around, the joy of the season seems to be magnified even more.  We love some good “friend finds.”  We are constantly calling our crew of besties to help us find what amazing new products are out there, what toys their kids are loving, what brilliant parenting tips are floating around, what in the world are you buying for gifts and more importantly… where the best wine is located.

We decided to compile some of our must haves for this season.  We hope you draw some serious inspiration from them and share the love!  If you have a brilliant gift, cool new brand, or know the line on some amazing wine, let us know in the comments!  We’d love to feature some fan favorites and share the mom knowledge!!!!

For the Little People in our world:

  1. We seriously can’t get enough Freshly picked mocs. If you’ve got a little – these cuties are a no brainer. But we warn you – once you start, you can’t stop. They’re all pretty amazing – and the little tiny toe marks that will last years after they’ve outgrown them are a treasure too. Are we the only ones obsessed with baby feet?
  2. Speaking of Freshly picked – we learned about our next fave through their new market place – Koko’s nest blankets- Egyptian cotton knit blanket done in beautiful neutrals and stripes
  3. We have three sets of these awesome watercolors in our house.  They are amazing!!
  4. We’re going to list this one under for the little people.  But lets be honest, adult coloring rules.

For the Big People in our world:

  1. Making a good family dinner doesn’t have to be fancy – or complex. I’ve been obsessed with Jenny Rosentrach since reading her first book (Dinner a love story) – and can’t get enough of her stories and yummy (totally do-able) recipes. Here new book is awesome – and on our must buy list: See here.
  2. For those momma’s like us with a head full of beautiful ideas but no clue how to get all of that organized into actionable steps for the future – Do yourself a favor and grab Lara Casey’s new PowerSheets. They sell out quickly – but they’re our go to tool and a even more fun this year!
  3. We love a little Details 2 Enjoy action. All of their work is pretty amazing, but these awesome pumpkins transfer from Halloween to Fall and Thanksgiving in the blink of an eye.  Again, we’re all for decorations that we can keep up for weeks!!
  4. And because I just need all the rifle paper – this one hopped in my cart before I could even really hesitate.
  5. Lemon and Oak.  Just yes.  Don’t question it, just buy it.
  6. While your candle shopping, check out these gems too.  We’re totally into making everyday items just a touch prettier.
  7. Gold foil it and, we’re done.  Add wine to it and we’re DOUBLE done!
  8. And no wish list is complete without a sassy t-shirt. My girl over at Vine & Branches never disappoints. I choose happy.
  9. And, I’m just going to leave this right here incase the man in my world needs some direction……aim high my friends. Aim high.

Custom Consultation: the Nitty Gritty on Our Process

How To Request A Custom Consultation From Delta Girl Frames

Custom consultations have always been, and will continue to be, the bread and butter of our business. We love making amazing pieces for our customers, but when we get to stop, slow down, have a nice chat about your custom consultation vision, your home and what you’re looking for – that’s what we REALLY love.

We’re constantly soaking in inspiration and design we see around town, in store fronts and from our some of our favorite design gurus. So when we get to bring together some of our favorite combos with a vision for your specific space – it’s a match made in frame heaven. Can we just say that you all have some seriously amazing style?

We want to do a quick walk through of our custom consultation process for you all today to make sure you don’t miss a thing!

One of our most frequent emails goes something like this…”Hey Delta Girls!  We love all of your work.  We have a big space in our living room/staircase/bedroom/dinning room, etc that we wanted something for. We haven’t found anything on the site that matches what we’re looking for exactly. HELP!”

This is where our Custom Consultation page comes in! Remember when we talked about streamlining our processes to make this easier for you all and more simplified. Less back and forth. More time for your day, more time for us to work? Yep, we got you again.

How To Request A Custom Consultation From Delta Girl Frames

When you click our new handy dandy custom consultation tab, this is what you’ll see! Three steps-it’s super easy!

Step 1: Purchase the custom consultation. Add it to your cart, check out. Easy!

Step 2: Come back and SCHEDULE your design consultation with Alexis! She is a busy momma so get on her books ASAP! You will receive a conformation email from us once this is completed with your time and date conformation.

Step 3: Complete your design worksheet while you’re thinking about it! This gives Alexis an idea of what you’re looking for before your chat. It gives her creative brain time to work through some ideas before you all talk.

After you chat with Alexis, you will receive a to scale proof of your space and the gallery design in that space. The proof will include frame sizes (ex: 4″ 5×7, 6″ 8×10, etc), frame pattern, frame/pattern color, trim type and color.

To Pattern or Not To Pattern….

How To Decide If A Frame With Pattern Is Right For Your Home Decor

Is a frame with pattern right for your home decor? That is the question.  Actually, it’s one of our MOST frequently asked questions-especially from our wholesale photographers out there.  Photography is, hands down, an art.  Sometimes, framing art is challenging.  You don’t want to distract from the beauty.  You want to enhance it.

Can we talk about some famous art for a second?  Meet Mona Lisa.

screen-shot-2016-10-11-at-4-48-06-pm

Lets chat about her frame quickly. It is all gold. And INCREDIBLY intricate with multiple designs, patterns and color variations. But in no way is the pattern distracting from arguably one of the most recognizable pieces of art. This frame enhances it. It brings your eye to the image. It complements the paintings strengths and makes a painting, a work of art.

Now, are we creating frames that will hang in the Louvre?  *Probably* not.  But we are creating pieces that will hang in your homes for years to come.

We are creating frames that will hold images of your families as the grow and change. We’re creating frames that your kids will talk about years from now….”remember, it was the picture in the navy frame with the pattern and gold trim.” We’re creating pieces that transform your images into art for your walls.

So how do you decide if a patterned frame is right for you?

Lets check out a couple examples of pattern and how it takes on some bold personality on our clients walls!

1.This beautiful metallic neutral set is set off by the 11×14 patterned central frame.  There are some “solids” in there with out Delta Girl Gray Wash but almost every piece in this gallery wall is patterned!

How To Decide If A Frame With Pattern Is Right For Your Home Decor

2. Rich raw wood takes on a bold pattern and we love how striking it is against the rest of the neutral set in this gallery wall.  These images are brought to life with the bold colors in this set and mix of patterns.

How To Decide If A Frame With Pattern Is Right For Your Home Decor

3. Our clients are sometimes worried about “matching” colors of a session to their frames. If you’ll notice in this set of images, there isn’t a teal color in any of those pictures!  The mom and baby are actually wearing a beautiful light blue.  The bright outdoor colors and greens pop against the beautiful teal!

How To Decide If A Frame With Pattern Is Right For Your Home Decor

We love a good solid washed frame.  They are beautiful accents to a gallery collection! They are an easy starter piece for the gift givers out there because they can go back to almost any pattern, but the bread and butter of Delta Girl is, and always will be, our unique hand made patterned pieces!
