What kinds of frames should I and shouldn't I use together?


No matter the art you choose, the framing can make all the difference in the world. If you're buying art for one room in your home, you should make sure that the frames and mats of your bargain art print or canvas work well together.

Typically, you should not mix brown and black wood, nor should you mix silvers and golds. Metallics and woods can be mixed if you're consistent. If you go with plain canvas, you can mix them with virtually anything.

If you don't like restrictions, you can always go with a more whimsical look and have every piece in a different kind of frame - wood, metallic, colored plastic - you name it. Work some alternate home decor accessories throughout the room and this whimsical decor option can work beautifully.
