Do All The Picture Frames In My House Have To Match?

Constantly I get asked by clients whether all the picture frames in their house have to match each other. There is a lot of insecurity by people when it comes to interior design. Few really understand it. If you don’t know and can’t design, then if everything matches then it is OK. Good design is eclectic with elements which you really like and have meaning to you. Your custom picture frames are the same. Is a good custom picture frame one that compliments the art or one that matches the picture frame on another piece of art across the room? The art pieces are not identical twins or triplets or quadruplets so they don’t need to be dressed the same.

The millenials today consider good design to be what they see in the top three mail order catalogs, all showing black or white picture frames with white mattings. It is as if they have given up on design and want to follow the masses into commonality. Make your picture frame and extension of the art. Look in design magazines not mail order catalogs for design inspiration. Are all the chairs in your room upholstered in the same fabric? Do all your picture frames need to be the same?
