Create the air of an artist’s studio with a selection of gilt frames in varying sizes and shapes. Arrange them against walls and items of furniture to give an impression of casual curation.
Decorative wallpapers can be pieces of art in their own right. Place samples of your favourite designs in ornate antique frames to create a coordinating display on a mantelpiece or shelf.
Make a focal point of your smaller frames by displaying them in groups of odd numbers within a much larger, standout frame.
Oversized antique frames work well with delicately detailed antiques for a sense of grandeur, while the combination of blush pink and gold adds romance.
Draw the eye towards a statement wallpaper. Where artworks might conflict with the wallpaper, empty frames can make a feature of it.
The gilt edging on antique frames cries out to be paired with a chandelier in a bedroom. Add sumptuous velvets for a lavish mix of textures
Juxtapose your frames against a rough textured brick or stone wall (or appearance of one) for added drama, allowing them to take centre stage and shine even more.
