Our team can help you choose the perfect picture frame colors.

Select Custom Frame Colors & Styles to Complement the Piece

The style, size, and color of a custom frame depend on the type of item you’re framing as well as your personal preferences. Family photographs and wedding framing have different requirements than framing for fine art, diplomas, and memorabilia. Our Boca Raton framing experts share a few guidelines to help you select the perfect custom frame options.

  • Black and white photographs look great in black or white frames. The simplicity and cohesion of the color palette can help you easily create the perfect gallery wall in your home or office.
  • Modern art generally looks best in minimalistic frames so that the focus remains on the artwork, but bold frames with a large mat can offer an alternative visual effect that also looks great.
  • Older styles of art pair well with more ornate frames in gold, silver, or natural wood.
  • Children’s art projects are often vibrant and look fantastic in bright, colorful frames.
  • A degree or certificate that represents a major achievement is best displayed in a simple, timeless frame. Diploma and certificate framing options can include items such as a graduation tassel or cords and can also incorporate moulding or matting in the colors of your alma mater.
  • Sports memorabilia, like tickets from an important game or a jersey signed by your favorite player, can be framed against neutral colors that help the items stand out or with moulding or mat colors that match the team colors.

Enhance the Frame with the Right Matting

Custom matting in one or more colors can be used for a variety of effects. When choosing a mat, you should make sure that the color of the mat doesn’t overpower the item it is bordering. Mat colors should coordinate with those of the item in both color and intensity.

Color is a powerful tool that can influence mood, elicit emotions, and set the tone in a space. Different color combinations can create numerous visual effects, so choosing the perfect custom frame colors can be very rewarding.

The experienced team at our custom frame shop in South Florida will guide you through the various color options with frame moulding and mat samples until we find the combination that speaks to you.

A Gift of Love, Preserved for Posterity

Image of custom-framed afghan

“My mother, Marilyn Marino, made this afghan with loving care. She stated every stitch represents her love. She made it upon my request with her arthritic hands at a time when her husband of 55 years lay in bed ill. Every weekend I would come to her house to help care for my father as she spent hours working on it. It took nearly a year to finish. The colors represent the story of Joseph and his coat of many colors.

Framing this special afghan meant the world to my family. It represents love, perseverance and so much more. Now it is preserved to pass on to my daughter and future generations to come.”
