Choosing a frame for picture framing is a skill that can enhance the look of any artwork or image. Picture frames, particularly large picture frames, should always be fit by an expert, as a novice can easily make errors in frame selection that can lessen the chances of the artwork becoming as visually appealing as it could be.
Some of the factors that need to be carefully considered when choosing a frame’s colour include:
Contrary to popular belief, dark frames do not make a picture appear lighter, nor do light frames make a picture appear darker, both options will only intensify the colours of the actual artwork.
The best frames will match the tone of the background or largest area in the artwork or picture. Hues of the picture frame should coordinate with tones in the artwork, yet not blend completely.
The colour of the frame should match the dominant shades of the picture or artwork, meaning that lighter images need a lighter frame and darker images require a darker frame.
The best way to select the perfect picture frame for any artwork is to speak to an expert. The trained specialists at Mahoney’s Framing in Melbourne live and breathe custom framing.
