Delta Girl Frames Memorial Day Celebration

The respect our Active Duty Navy family has for those serving our country is immeasurable. In honor of all those who return home and those that don’t, we like to take time to celebrate the selflessness of each and every one of them. This Memorial Day weekend is no exception.

To help you think about taking some time out to remember those lost but not forgotten while celebrating the life they fought to protect, we’ve gathered up our favorite Americana ideas. So get ready to deck the town red, white, and blue. 🇺🇸

Delta Girl Frames Goes Americana

1- It’s no secret I love a good tassel garland. So a red, white, and blue version? Score. Check out this DIY patriotic version from Landeelu.

2- Have you ever met anyone that didn’t like a Rice Krispie treat? Didn’t think so. But a RKT (yes, we’re going to make it happen like fetch did) on a stick and dipped in chocolate? My kids are OBSESSED. Thank you, Love, Life, and Sugar.

3- It may not be a frame, but we had to sneak in some form of painting. And this one the kids can get involved in. Grab some construction marking spray paint and STAR up your lawn care of The Concrete Cottage.

4- While the kids paint your lawn, take a deep breath and sip on something delicious. These Red, White, and Blue Wine Sparklers from Fox and Briar should do the trick. Don’t mind us if we sit poolside and enjoy a drink…or three.

4- If there is ONE chef I am completely enamored with, it would hands down be Ina Garten. The Barefoot Contessa is my spirit chef. Ha. So one of Ina’s recipes had to make the list. And there is no Southern girl that doesn’t love some good fried chicken.

5- Lastly, there is nothing better than displaying your American pride by hanging your Flag on your home. Want to do it right? Southern Living is here for you.

7-Piece Annapolis Collection by Delta Girl Frames

BONUS: If you’re looking to add some red, white, and blue decor to your home, we’ve got just what you’re looking for. Our Annapolis Collection fits the bill and honors the city that holds a special place in my Navy heart. ❤️

Quick holiday gallery walls for the win!

It’s almost the most wonderful time of the year. You know- the one where us Moms are running around like crazy trying to get ALL. THE. THINGS. DONE. Is it just me or do you also look for any shortcut to make the holidays even a bit easier? I want to spend time soaking up all the holiday joy with my kiddos, not trying to manage the holiday chaos. We’re aiming for a Southern Living-esque season.

When it comes to decorating, I like to add holiday cheer to my existing home decor. Not looking to reinvent the wheel. Of course, we try to make it easy on you as well with your Delta Girl Frames. Your year-round investment coupled with a few seasonal frames can easily elevate your wall to HO-HO-HO.

Simply take your gallery wall, swap out a few of your everyday frames for your holiday ones of the same size, and voila! You have a gallery wall full of all the cheer you could as for. Need a step by step example? We got you covered.

HOW TO ADD HOLIDAY CHEER TO YOUR DELTA GIRL GALLERY WALL

1- Meet our 6-piece Abby Collection, a beautiful neutral set that’s UBER timeless…

2- First remove the center 8×10 6″ Tribeca pattern frame.

3- Then replace with our 8×10 6″ Noel Blooms frame.

4- Finally, sit back and enjoy your hard work with a cup of whatever and a sugary treat.

BONUS: Swap out the two 5×7 4″ frames in the Abby collection with two 5×7 4″ Classy Antler frames as seen above. ?

OF COURSE, THERE’S ANOTHER OPTION…

What if you had a gorgeous gallery wall that you loved year round? But then you had the SAME exact frames in- wait for it- HOLIDAY patterns?! How about just switching them out without having to move a nail?! I know, I know- MIND. BLOWN. ?

While this is a holiday investment along with all of your other decor, it’s makes such an impact of your love for the season. Here’s an example of what we’re talking about:

1- You love your 6-piece Hopkins Collection. We get it. It’s gorgeous with all your family memories.

2- You remove each frame and exchange it with our 6-piece Noël Collection. Now your holiday memories get the same stellar treatment in their own frames. You’re welcome.

If you’re looking to see additional ideas for different holiday swap outs, comment below and we’ll highlight an example in a coming blogpost. We’re always here to help with your frame needs and suggestions.

Designing a Man Space Your Husband Will Love (Oh, and You, Too)

You have the kitchen, the family room, likely the living room, and the dining room. Heck- you probably even chose all the decor in your bedroom. One room that has a unique male presence in most decor? The Den, or study- whatever you call it in your home, can be a refuge for the man in your life. But how do you prevent it from quickly turning into a football-drenched, beer signage-hanging ‘man cave?’ Helping to create a space that is cozy and masculine while curating pieces that last a lifetime.

Delta Girl Frames Styling Guide: Finally, a Man Space You’ll Love, Too!

We’ve put together a few key pieces, with some of our newest Delta Girl Frames, that we think both you and your significant other will love. A room you’d be proud of showing off, instead of closing the door to guests when they come over. Ha.

  • The Leather Furniture: This can be classic or modern, completely up to your overall decor style. If you’re more classically inclined, we suggest a Chesterfield or English Roll Arm style. For the more modern home, keep the lines clean and the furniture low.

 

  • The Book Collection: Whether it’s a set you purchase online, novels you’ve collected over the years, or old books you’ve picked up at antique stores, this sets the tone for the rest of the room.

 

  • A Bold Rug: You have so many options with this one. A faux animal hide helps hone in on a hunting esthetic. A Persian or Oriental rug gives your room a world traveler look. Or a geometric rug can take your room in the modern direction. Of course, there’s always the clean option of a natural fiber rug.

 

  • The Wood Pieces: While you may not have wood paneled walls like old English estates, you can still create that look by incorporating wood furniture. Look for side tables that are transitional and a desk fit for a king.

 

  • A few Outdoor Elements: Keep it simple with these, as they are meant to be accents in your room. A few plants, some antique sports memorabilia, landscape artwork. You get where we’re going with this.

Should You Pick The Photo First Or The Frame?

Should You Pick The Photo First Or The Frame? | Delta Girl Frames

 

Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Er…I mean, the frame or the photo?

Please tell me I’m not the only one trying to do ALL the things during summer. Organize the house? Sure. Redecorate that much-put-off statement hallway? Absolutely.

Should You Pick The Photo First Or The Frame?

We’re all SO busy, and sometimes projects can be hard to START because exactly that…we don’t know WHERE to start.

Which leads me to my favorite feedback from customers:  “I want to get frames from Delta Girl, but I don’t know which photos I want to frame – so I need to get that pulled together before I can even start to figure it all out.”

Insert egg, then chicken. Which leads us down this big black hole of options, confusion, and trying to pick between your favorite photos, friends, and memories. ACK! Cue panic.

Should You Pick The Photo First Or The Frame? | Delta Girl Frames

How about a new way to consider this project?

What if, instead, you picked the frame BEFORE the photo?

Yep, that’s right. Just like you pick an outfit based on what fits you, why not select your frames to fit the space (and your style), and then fill them with your most recent favorite memories?

Different from those stuffy online framers, our frames allow you to easily swap your photos/art via the easily opened framer’s points on the back.

This means you can display your favorite end of school year photos in the spring and at the end of summer, you can swap them out to showcase your vacation.

Check out this room transformation!

Should You Pick The Photo First Or The Frame? | Delta Girl Frames

Before

Should You Pick The Photo First Or The Frame? | Delta Girl Frames

After (all 8×8 frames)

Want to make life EVEN easier?

Allow us to create a gallery wall for your space using all the same size photos!

Translation: print out all your fave photos using one consistent size and swap them out throughout the year – and no more wasted prints, or endless brain space used trying to figure it all out.

And lastly – for the really busy woman-on-the-go – snag our custom consultation and let us do all the work for you. You’ll get a call with our design team, a custom layout specific to your space, and options to help jumpstart your summer project list.

Should You Pick The Photo First Or The Frame? | Delta Girl Frames

Either way. Chicken or egg, frame or photo – crossing this ‘must-do’ off your list will never feel so good when you’re able to enjoy all your favorite memories proudly hanging on your walls.

Happy Framing!

A Delta Girl Spotlight!

A few years ago we were lucky enough to attend the Making Things Happen conference (do you know about MTH??  If not, go.  Register.  Attend) where we befriended Kate, of Kate and Moose.  A quick introduction turned into a long relationship of two girl bosses just trying to bring our colorful dreams to reality.

Kate was sweet enough to do a little Artist Spotlight on us last week and we wanted to share the news-didn’t you always want to know where we get our inspiration, what our favorite color is, and what one thing we’d eat for the rest of our life (spoiler alert-we love food AND we’re rule breakers so theres 3 rest of our life foods).

Head over, check us out, and leave Kate a little love or buy any of her amazing pieces!  What, you wanted to see our favorites?!?  Ok, ok…..

Persnickety Swoon

YOU GUYS, YOU GUYS, yoouuu guyyyssss.  We have to take a moment here to swoon over the early front runner for our 2018 crush-Persnickety Prints.

We have been doing a lot of growing and changing over this last year-personally and professionally.  Kids, moves, military life, growth in business….just your normal mid 30s adulating life stuff happening over here.  One of our goals is intentional growth.  We want to set big goals and live them out loud.  You know how sometimes you take classes or attend seminars and they as you to do something and you laugh inside because you KNOW theres no way you’re actually going to benefit from it because “its cheesy”?  Enter the vision board we were asked to create in our last business seminar.  Do you ALSO know that the things your asked to do-those that you laugh at-are frequently the most helpful and influential things you can do for yourself?

Yea.  Its a straight kick in the ass.

We started by taking Amber Housley’s Flourish workshop. She challenged us to make a vision board.. and what I thought might be cheesy turned into more. So much more.  It became an inspiration we kept going back to.  Screenshots on our phone and computer, talking about quotes and visions with our close people, researching patterns and colors.  So you know what we decided to do?  Straight Oprah The Secret.  Thats right.  We put it out there in a BIG way and took our inspiration board to Persnickety Prints.  And the result was magical.

And you know what happened next (yes, those are macaroons…I mean, its a dream vision board).  We married Persnickety Prints with our NEW exclusive reclaimed barn wood frames.  The result was vision board magic.

And now, she hangs in our entry way.  Everyday, the vision of US-where we are, where were going for sure and where we want to be.

We loved Persnickety so much we ended up doing a quick little playroom make over as well. Because it’s Valentines day and all-heart-everything… and because we La-la-LOVE our kids (most days), it’s a keeper fa sure.

We know its still JUST January of this year-but OH! What a year its going to be!!!

Let’s hear it.. what are you dreaming up in 2018? We’d love to hear your vision for the new year!
