Choosing the right colour is a fundamental decision
Framed art is a fantastic way to introduce colour for the more colour-shy shoppers. It makes an instant impact, but it's affordable and simple to swap-out if you decide to change things up.
Your choice of frame (and mount) colour can affect how you and others perceive the artwork or photograph you're framing. Choose a white or black frame to focus your eye on the picture or brighten up your mood with a more vivid colour like yellow or blue. Alternatively, instead of trying to match your art and frame, use an accent mount (double mount) to complement the colour of your art.
Go one step further and consider matching your wall decor with other accessories like cushions and throws.
Picking a colour can be challenging, but you should always have a starting point:
- Your home - try to utilise colours that already exist in your room, like furnishings and accessories. Take a look around, you can draw on colours from your favourite candles, sideboard or cushions
- Your picture - inspiration can also be found in the artwork or picture you're framing. For example, if you're framing a picture of the seaside, try checking out the range of blue, white and cream frames. Check out our ideas for framing your pictures by style
- Online - why not hop hop onto our Instagram to see how our other customers decided to frame their pictures or check our colour trends blog post. Alternatively, pick up the latest copy of your favourite home fashion magazine, paying close attention to the way designers are framing their pieces
