Frame It: Blueprints

Architecture? More like art-itecture! The precise, technical details of blueprints make a bold and beautiful statement in any room when framed. We love the rich blue hue of this blueprint for a stairwell in our clean, white Irvine Slim frame style.

It’s not quite blue, but we adore the incredibly detail of this pencil-drawn plan for the natatorium at Middlebury College. This hand-drawn architectural plan looks so chic in our our natural wood Sonoma frame style and would be the perfect addition to your office or entryway! 

Blueprints are a beautiful and unexpected alternative to art and photographs and a great way to add visual interest to any room. Looking for a set of blueprints to frame? We recommend:

  • Frame the blueprints for your house! If you don’t have a copy of the blueprints for your home, we recommend contacting the previous owners, contractor, or the county clerk’s office who often has a copy of property blueprints on record.
  • Contact a local architect and see if they have any plans in their company archives they no longer need. We scored the sweet pencil-drawn plans for the Middlebury College natatorium from an architecture firm cleaning out their storage.
  • Ebay is a great source for finding awesome original architectural prints!
  • For a more whimsical alternative, we love Fantasy Floorplans who offer floorplans of fictional homes from TV sitcoms. Who wouldn’t smile seeing a framed floorplan of the Brady Bunch family home?
