Choose a Metal
on the existing décor of the room you want to place the metal frame in, choose
from silver, gold, chrome (polished or dull) or bronze. If you do not know
which one to choose, look around the room to see what other metal fixtures are
incorporated into your ceiling fans, table lamps or light switch boards. This
can give you an idea of what metal will work best in that room. Generally, you
should try to maintain one theme for the entire room so as to create an elegant
and matching ambiance. If you still cannot decide, the classic gold and silver
tend to look best in older, classically-decorated homes with wooden furniture
and upholstery. Dull chromes and bronzes look good with contemporary-styled
homes and can be used to play up either black or white furniture, as well as
decorative glass items.
frames are available in such a wide variety of styles that you are sure to find
one that is perfect for your home. You can purchase frames with plain borders
or fancy edges, and round, oval, or even asymmetrical shapes, depending on
where you plan to use the item. Generally, plain rectangular pieces look good
in hallways or on living room or den walls; round or oval frames work well in
children's rooms or nurseries, and more edgy styles like asymmetrical frames
can be placed in dining rooms.
frames also come in styles that emphasize a wedding, birthday or
anniversary. You can purchase one of these if you plan to frame pictures from
one of these memorable events or if you want to make a collage of several
pictures with the same theme.
