Few things make a home look more inviting and friendly than art work on the walls. However, choosing the right frame, especially the right color frame, is essential for making the most of your art work. Whether you frame the piece yourself or enlist the aid of Frame Warehouse, there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind.
Tips for choosing the right color frame for your art work
1. Don’t let the frame overpower the art. It’s easy to fall in love with a lovely frame, one that’s bright and cheery or elegantly carved. However, the frame should complement the art, not draw the eye away from it. While a bold, colorful piece can support a brightly-colored frame, most art needs something a little more subtle.
2. Choose a frame color from inside the art piece. One of the best ways to make sure that your frame works well with your art is to choose a frame color that already exists inside the art piece. It doesn’t have to be the main color, but the frame will draw out that secondary color and help both the frame and the art to “pop.”
3. When in doubt, choose black or white. Black and white complement most every type of art. If you can’t seem to find the right color for your frame, opt for black or white.
Framed art on your walls is a great way to let your personality shine in your home. Make your art look it’s best by taking a little time to choose the right color frame.
