Awesome Frames for the Bach
As Kiwi’s, we all love the beach and the classic family bach. Whether it’s a cosy classic, a modern architectural build, or anything in between, the stuff you put in it is likely to be very different to the feel of your city house.
As such your artwork may be pretty different too, so we have come up with a selection of our favourite wooden profiles, from clean and modern, to rustic and beachy, to help you get some inspiration for decorating the home away from home.
Modern Natural Wood
The perfect frame for anywhere, but great if you want something that will look as good in the bach as it does in the house. Over the past 5 years or so as the scandinavian trend has grown, more and more profiles and shades have emerged. With well over 30 options in this family now, you will definitely find the right one for you.
Classic Italian Imports
These are some of the most beautiful frames we have in the shop. Not only are they elegent and perfect anywhere, they are very versatile. All three in any size would be perfect on a huge painting in the city house, or a smaller painting at the bach (or vice versa). Timeless and elegent, they are bachy woods that will never date and always look fantastic.
These make for a really great step up from the evenly finished wood to the slightly distressed territory. With a little bit of the wood texture coming through, these have a really lovely colour finish as well as start to look more like raw wood. With three colours and 4 profiles in this family, there is more than enough to choose from. Our favourite is the slightly warm toned grey!
The Old Wood Shed Inspired
These ones are particularly unique. With the raw texture and sanded back paint finish, no two lengths will be identical in texture, making for a truly rustic feel.
This comes in a range of very neutral colours too, which makes them versatile in terms of palette. They’ll work on many different options, but we can imagine a bigger beach themed print from the likes of Tony Ogle or Matt Payne being great in these.
Distressed Paint Finish
In a very similar theme to the last ones, these are rough and raw wood textures that will vary from length to length, with a paint technique that is designed to show that off. These however look a bit like the old cabin that hasn’t been painted in decades, giving it a very kiwi feel that is almost nostalgic.
These are definitely the hardest of all the options to match to a print, but when you find the exact right scenario these frames sing.
So those are our picks! They are not the end all be all of wooden frame options, and not even the only ones with texture, but these will hopefully give you an idea of the kinds of look you can achieve and that there are many different options to choose from.
