Custom picture framing is an integral part of furnishing and decorating a home or business. In fact, quality custom picture framing is like furniture for the wall. More often than not the style of the room dictates the style of both the art and framing that will go in it. However, adventurous people enjoy selecting art and framing that add eclectic appeal to their decor. Although there aren't rules, you can not mix and match just anything and be successful.
When selecting art and framing, your number one goal should be to find something you love. Do not settle for art simply because it matches your color scheme. If it happens to match, that is OK but it shouldn't blend too well. After all, you do want people to notice it. Art can be a wonderful accent in a room when it contrasts enough to be seen and enjoyed.
The custom framing selected for art can vary a lot depending on the decor. Any piece of art can be custom framed many different ways as you see in the examples here. One of those ways is bound to work better with your room than another. Framing serves as a transition between the art and room to help the art looks its best in its situation. Just remember, quality framing can last for generations so make sure it looks great with the art.
