Before we purchased the Samsung Frame TV, we had built an incredible faux stone fireplace surround. I recently wrapped up all the furnishings and decor for this space, and I really wanted to finish off our Samsung Frame TV with something that fit the European Farmhouse design of our home.
We bought some wood thinking we could DIY the look I was after, but it just wouldn’t come together. That’s when I decided Deco TV Frames was the best source I could find and had the most variety of options to choose from.
Deco TV Frames
Let’s take a look at all these samples to give you an idea of what variety of styles they have to choose from. I’ll categorize them into the design styles I personally think they work best for.
For the Modern or Minimalist Home
They have a ton of options if your home is more contemporary, maybe mid-century modern, or especially if you like a simple clean look.
Their alloy line is fairly new, and you can get a variety of metallic sheens, colors, and beveled designs. I was curious if I would like these pale gold alloy frames, as I felt they could possibly lean into the European style I was after.
I actually loved them, but in the end – fell in love with another option even more.
For the Traditional Home
If you are after something more timeless and versatile, I think you would love antique gold or warm silver. I loved the antique white or the antique gold and black. I think these are really classic and traditional frame designs. You can see all the samples here.
For the European or Vintage-Inspired Home
Let’s look at some of the more ornate frame options. I was quite smitten with all of them, and was glad I tried all of them to pick a favorite.
The ornate gold is a show stopper and especially great if you love a French-inspired home or are after something really glamorous. It’s so chunky and beautiful and has so much patina. My good friend, Deb from Seeking Lavender Lane, has this above her stone fireplace, and it is stunning.
Then they have the Tuscan gold and Tuscan silver, which are very similar. The Tuscan gold brings out a more subtle gold detail than the ornate gold frame – which works if you want a spec of gold.
To me, these 2 options look more old-world or old-fashioned, perhaps something similar to what you might land upon digging through frames in an antique store.
My TV Frame Selection and Deco TV Frame Review
It was tough deciding between so many lovely options, but in the end, my heart just knew that the Tuscan Silver was the perfect frame for our TV. The color coordinates well with the space, and I fell in love with the old-world vibe. The texture of the frame seems to perfectly coordinate with my collected pottery and textured lime wash walls.
Initially, I was torn between the Tuscan gold and the Tuscan silver, but after staring at both samples throughout the day, my eyes were just drawn more to the silver.
I love displaying vintage art on the Samsung Frame TV, so I played around with darker moodier vintage art vs light and bright vintage art. That’s when I knew the Tuscan silver would go with more of a variety of art.
The assembly and installation went smoothly and were very customer-friendly. I’m blown away by the quality of Deco TV frames and how real they make the TV look like framed art.
They fit the edge of the tv screen perfectly. It’s an amazing experience watching TV and displaying art now with this frame. The framed piece of art looks so authentic, it’s hard to believe that it’s actually a television hanging on the wall.
How to Pick a Frame for Your Frame TV
I hope that was helpful to see, but I’ll leave you with some quick tips for picking out your own frame for the Frame TV.
1) Don’t skip the samples!
The samples always seem to look different in person and when you hold it up to your TV, so don’t skip the step of getting some samples to try out before you invest in the final frame. You can definitely narrow it down to only sampling a few of your favorites, but go ahead and get those in your hands first.
2) Leave the samples on the TV for a day or two
See what draws your eye the most and get input from your family.
3) Try out several pieces of art on display
And that will help you narrow it down to the frame that will work best for your art preferences.
4) Account for the frame when hanging your TV
Hopefully, this tip isn’t coming too late for you, but before you hang your TV, account for that added bulk the frame might add to the TV and make sure the placement is right for you.
5) Check out other homes with frames on their TV
Head to the Deco TV Frames Instagram to find more inspiration for TV frames. If you do this, you can get a good feel for what style goes best with the style of your home and that can be helpful if you need to narrow down your sample selections.
I hope my experience helps you find the perfect frame for your Frame TV. I am 100% happy with my results and thrilled to finally say our living room is now complete.
