Ihave been very fortunate to be featured in our local Birmingham paper 4 times in the last 3 years and of course, have saved the articles with the intention of framing them and hanging them in my office nook.
I never got around to that. But, then something even better happened!
Larson-Juhl, a world renowned custom framing company in Atlanta (see their ads in Traditional Home magazine) contacted me about partnering with them and doing a custom frame to fit right in with my office nook look and I couldn’t be prouder of the way they turned out. They assured me that they would take into consideration my office space, how it looks and performs, and choose something to complement it.
And they certainly did!
You can see that the color and style of the frame really enhances my office space and fits right in with what I already have.
Here is how Arlynn from Larson-Juhl described the framing of my articles:
Our in-house designer used one of our new frame moldings from the Biltmore Frame Collection , it’s a large, very classic, ornamented pattern with an antiqued black finish actually inspired by the frames hanging in the historic Biltmore house in Asheville, NC. She also utilized a gold beaded filet (almost like a mini-frame) that sits on the inside edge and then a third, more simple filet (in that same antique black finish) on the very inside of the piece to create a very one of a kind look. We also incorporated two matboards, one in a green color that seems very “you” and another, simple black matboard that the newspaper articles are mounted to – the combination of these two mats really work to make the framed articles look like a priceless piece of artwork & should incorporate nicely into your current home decor.
And I would have to agree. They look fantastic with all of my other colors in here, don’t you think?
You might remember the magazine holder project I did awhile back with scrapbook paper, all in my favorite black, white and green.
And I added 3 pretty crystals that I picked up at an antique store at the beach to my thrifty chandelier.
The zebra memo board got a makeover a few months ago.
And the cording that was added a few months ago, along the lime green wall (Behr’s Grasscloth, same as my laundry room) enhances this space even more.
I’m still in love with my office nook and love it even more now. My memories are complete and will be treasured forever in these custom frames from Larson-Juhl’s Biltmore Collection.
It’s personalized totally for ME! And isn’t that what an office space is all about? I think so. The second frame is just behind my office chair on a small wall and this space is completely filled up now.

I would have the two poems framed that my hubby wrote for me. By the way, I love your office nook. Great colors and patterns and I heart the initials on the wall.
I would definitely frame the oil still life painting my daughter did for me for Mothers Day. I’ve had it displayed on an easel, but it needs a special, beautiful frame.
I lost both of my precious grandmothers in little over a year (Aug. 2009 and July 2008). I have a handwritten recipe from each of them. I’d love to have this pair framed for my kitchen!
First off, I am BEYOND envious of your office nook!!
What I would have framed is a hand written recipe of my mom’s. She used to make this pepper steak often and once I moved away from home, would make it whenever I came home to visit (it was usually my “welcome home” meal).
I never learned how she made it and after she died, I thought I’d never taste it again. It became one of many things that I missed deeply the first few weeks after her death.
One day while I was sorting through stuff on her desk I found a piece of paper, in her handwriting, of this recipe. I have treasured that piece of paper for years and would LOVE to be able to preserve it and showcase it in such a beautiful way.

I have a few old family documents that would look beautiful framed, or I might get our family portrait framed.
Your office is beautiful. I love that shade of green on the walls.
Shar Yates says
family documents, for sure, would be wonderful to have their frames around it!
Love the way that looks in your office Rhoda…….
I think I would frame pics of my kids…..I never tire of looking at them :)…..really cute kids if I do say so myself and I just did LOL
Have a great week-end….
I PAID A LOT OF MONEY TO FRAME SEVERAL ITEMS OF MY DECEASED MOM AND DAD’S (OLD WALLET, EYEGLASSES, HAT, PICTURE, DRIVERS LICENSE, ETC) AND THEY ARE GEORGEOUS. AFTER THE COMPANY CLOSED THEIR BUSINESS, AN OLD FRIEND OF MY MOM’S (SHE DIED WHEN I WAS ONLY SIX IN 1956) GAVE ME A LETTER THAT SHE WROTE TO HER WHEN SHE AND MY DAD WERE ONLY DATING, I WOULD LOVE FOR IT TO BE FRAMED TO DISPLAY WITH THE OTHER FRAMED TREASURES.
I would love to finally frame our wedding photo from 3 years ago!
Very nice frame!
Carol from Indian Springs says
I love the frames! I would either frame a small dress that my mom made me when I was a child (in a shadowbox) or a couple of old hand-written recipes from my grandmother. Custom framing adds so much to treasured memories, I love using it when I can!
I have a beautiful picture of my gorgeous little daughters that I would love to finally have framed.
The frames look wonderful in your office.

Heather Woosley says
I really liked the Imperial, Vienna and Isabella frames for a G. Harvey print. But I would choose the Heyward for a shadowbox that I have longed to do of some of the door hardware from the house Dan’s mom grew up in. That would really be a special piece for us. :o)

I was just wondering where you purchased the shelving above your desk. Is it Ballard Designs or did you create them yourself? Thanks!!
I’d have one of my wedding pictures framed! Thanks for a great giveaway!
I would frame the black and white picture that my grandfather took of my great grandfather fly fishing in the Baldwin River. This photo is tinted by my grandfather and just a beatiful memories of 2 men I loved very much and miss every day.
Love your frame and your office nook, my wheels are turning. I am working on decluttering first!

What a beautiful frame!
My mother & I were just lookin at some costume jewelry she received as a graduation present, along with some gloves and lace handkerchief and wondering how we could frame these items together! That’s what I would choose!
The frames are beautiful! They did a fantastic job for you, too. I would love to have a special framed picture of our family for our family room. That’s one of the things that I have put off—-some necessity always comes up and causes me to defer this for “later”. Please enter me in your great giveaway! Thank you!
