First of all, let me announce that there will be a new YouTube video on our channel soon where we’ll show you our office/studio. You’ve seen it before when it was all white. Now we’ve renovated it and turned it into a more functional and cozy place than it was before.
We kept its minimalistic look but now there is an intriguing accent – an art wall that may fully be transformed. What’s that, actually? Well, I’m giving you a hint that three of the frames that you’re seeing on the cover photo do not exist. This is an illusion that we achieved with The Frame from Samsung, which I’m going to tell you about in detail in a bit. Let me first mention a couple of interesting facts about the two frames with prints that are actually real:
1. We bought prints and suitable frames with the idea to transform them in our own way.
2. We are not painters, we can’t even draw at all, but we find great pleasure in daubing. (You already know that we “painted” pictures for our home with the paint leftovers from renovating.) That’s why we experimented with different techniques of color mixing, and we spread the colors with brushes, an unnecessary shopping card, and an old business card.
3. We used water miscible paints that may easily be washed with water. Even so, watch out for your clothes. In the shop, we were told that they leave stains.
4. We didn’t paint directly on the paper. Instead, we painted above the PVC part of the frame. This way, we made sure that we’re not going to ruin the print if we don’t like the result (because the paints may easily be washed out). Our main aim though was to make it possible to transform the prints over time without wasting paper unnecessarily. For this kind of transformation, we were inspired by The Frame from Samsung, which was the best fit for our place.
5. Unleash your imagination, take into account what you want the final result to look like, a more vibrant or a more simple accent. Make it match with the surrounding area so that it looks complete.
