How To Style Your Walls with Transparent Frames

Today we will talk about styling the walls with frames, not just any frame, but the recent styling hit - the transparent designs. Have you seen them around too? By the way, hello everyone, how are you? It's Agata and I'm back on decor8 with my monthly styling tip post.

I'm definitely the kind of person who likes to try new things, experiment with new designs, and mix and match materials so I always look for new ways to do that at home. Not all of the experiments turn out well (I do have quite a few 'stars' on my list) but if never try, I wouldn't know, so I just keep experimenting. Do you do this too?

This time around, I played with transparent frames and dried botanicals. Why not normal frames you wonder? Transparent ones might look like a regular empty frame at first, but they give us more creative possibilities to capture elements inside, creating the illusion that the elements are floating in the air because the frames have no backs.

Inside of your frame, you display whatever you'd like  - a print, photographs, however, my preferred option is leaves, where we can see their delicate structure. Just like classic botanical illustrations from books, except this time they are real, modern and on-trend - plus you made them yourself.

For these looks, I tried two different option to see which one would be best and I have to say it's a hard choice as I like both looks, which one do you like better? A dried leaf or the fluffy country grass?

Another way of using transparent frames is displaying it as a background for other objects, to add depth and create a layered look. You can place it against the wall in your bedroom drawer, mantel, cupboard and build a little scene around - display a plant, figure or a few small objects in front of it. As I mentioned before it's great to experiment and see what you like.

SHOPPING TIP: Try the MOEBE frames from Denmark to create this look.

Have a great day, I will be back next month with another interior styling tip for you! - Agata
