Choosing the right colors for your picture frame can be a daunting task. You have to decide whether you want your framed images to blend in with the surroundings, or stand out as a focal point in the room where it is being displayed. Blue Dot Framing can help you with difficult color decisions, but here are a few friendly tips to get you thinking:
- A black frame is the “safest” choice for framing photography, small pieces of art, drawings, posters, and printed media.
- With original art on canvas, like oil paintings, the possibilities are limitless. You can choose an ornate gold frame, a light or dark wood frame, a hand-carved rustic frame, or painted frame designed to match your decor.
- Watercolor paintings look good framed with natural or stained wood frames.
- Children’s art looks great framed in pastel colors.
