The Season’s Best Neutrals

Posted by Liana Hornyak on Oct 15, 2020

Fall traditionally brings sartorial cravings for the crisp and timeless. We swap summer’s colorful trends for beloved staples like our camel-colored coat, black turtleneck, chunky gray cardigan, or elegant leather crossbody. But, like everything else in 2020, this season feels a bit different. With fewer opportunities to see and be seen, our desire for an updated aesthetic turns from our wardrobes to our homes.

Like your fall fashion favorites, our neutral Gallery frames are versatile, chic, and sure to withstand the test of time. Available in Gallery ClassicGallery Wide, Gallery Mid, and Gallery Deep, these frames are easy to pair with artwork of all sizes to create a perfect ensemble that will never go out of style. Scroll for inspiration to help you get started.

White

It doesn’t get more neutral than a clean and cool White Gallery frame. We particularly love it for custom framing pieces with a lot of color, as the minimalist style allows the art to really stand out—especially when hung on a white or pale wall.

One benefit of our White Gallery frame? It scales up really well. Case in point: these oversized photos in Maisonette’s Brooklyn headquarters, designed by Ariel Okin and shot by Seth Caplan.

Bright White Metal Gallery frames are another modern option—and the perfect, barely-there accompaniment to Sarah Weily’s collection of eclectic Hattie Stewart prints.

Natural

Looking for a neutral frame that leans a bit more boho? You’re looking for our Natural Gallery frame. It’s got the same clean lines as Gallery in White, but with a subtle wood grain that feels, well, natural. We love it for framing perfectly imperfect art forms like screenprints and block prints, photographs, and anything inspired by nature.

The grain in this Gallery Mid in Natural really complements the organic nature of the Block Shop Textiles print hanging in Festoon LA.

Gallery Wide in Natural perfectly ties this soothing Max Wanger print into the rest of a laid-back, mid-century space.

Black

Don’t be afraid of the dark. Black Gallery is great for custom framing graphic prints, saturated colors, and (of course) black and white photography—and it has the unique ability to remain neutral while adding just the right amount of drama.

This bedroom is filled with so many pretty details, but the eye is inadvertently drawn to the oversized, abstract print by Daylight Dreams Editions framed in Black Gallery above the bed. Shop the entire Modern Glam space via Spaces by Brooklinen, featuring art curated and custom framed by us.

Angela Fink’s personal travel photos custom framed in Black Gallery frames offer a moodier take on a classic neutral palette—and we’re very into it.
