A creative lifestyle blog.

I have had these amazing zinc and glass Kiko picture frames in my possession for well over a year now but until recently they kept being moved from room to room until I found the perfect spot for them.  Unfortunately for me that specific spot happens to be right next to the only window in the room so photographing them in situ has been near impossible. Yet here we are with photographs thanks to the power of a white mount board and photographing things on your floor. 

Naturally these frames look much better hung on a wall rather than placed on a floor but I really wanted to share them with you as they can be used in so many ways and look a million times better than your average off the shelf picture frame. 

First off I want to mention the fact that the company that sell these wonderful frames called NKUKU are certified through The World Fair Trade Organisation and specialise in stylish, eco friendly gifts made by combining contemporary designs and the traditional skills of artisans throughout India to create a whole range of items that I am besotted with. The frames themselves come in varying sizes and materials and are all strung by a recycled sari tie. Unlike most picture frames both parts of this frame are glass meaning that the wall behind the image acts like a mount to whatever you chose to pop in them. 


Over the time I have had them I have had various different things in them from postcards, photographs, prints and now pressed flowers. Pressing flowers is something I remember doing as a young child so when I stumbled across a flower press in a charity shop I just knew the finished results would look amazing in my glass frames and I really love the way they look like they are just casually floating on my wall. Obviously the price of these frames varies depending upon which size you require but you can them up from £10 via Not On The Highstreet

I currently have a small group of 3 of these frames on my wall but I cannot help myself and can only imagine what a gallery wall full with these frames would look like! What do you think of this very modern way to display your keepsakes or even your pressed flowers like me?
