What Color Frame Works Best?
Choosing A Frame Color
Several methods are used when selecting appropriate frame colors, including:
- Match or coordinate a dominant color in the art
- Relate to the color temperature of the art. Red, orange and yellow are warm colors so they coordinate with gold or wood tone frames. Blue, green and purple are cool colors and they relate more to silver or gray frames.
- For historical pieces, we often suggest using the finish color that would have been used originally when the piece was new.
But always remember you must choose what is best for you. Our design consultants are here to make recommendations and help you, but in the end you must be happy!
