What's In A Frame?

Choosing the right artwork for your home can be difficult, but for many of us, framing is the real puzzler.  What color?  Mat or no mat?  And if you're anything like me, those decisions can be so overwhelming that beautiful paintings and photos lanquish for months or years in a closet, unframed and unseen.  But here's the good news:  Once you break it down, the process really isn't that hard.  Follow these guidelines to take the guesswork out of framing your art to its best advantage (this is a great article from  To read the complete article and view photos click here).

  • Consider the style of the art,
  • Consider the style of the room,
  • Match the size of the frame to the size of the picture,
  • Decide whether to use mats,
  • Choose a mat that contrasts with the color of the art,
  • Select the type of glass you want,
  • Make sure the mats are wide enough, and finally,
  • Don't worry about matching frames.

If you follow these easy guidelines, your artwork can make your home a designer's dream!
