Art Tips for Frame Shapes and Mat Color
Vary Frame Shapes
Add interest to a picture grouping by hanging pictures with differently shaped frames. Here two oval frames round out a diverent set of rectangular frames. Handpainted vines and faux picture wires further serve to unite the pieces.
Pictures will have greater impact if matted in a contrasting color to the wall. Choose a dark mat for a light wall and vice versa.
