Your Frame Has the Wrong Focus
When shopping for picture frames, many of us look for ones that match our d├ęcor. And then, five years later, when our tastes have changed, we keep the same dated look outlining every portrait. "Frame for the art, not your home," says Emily Henderson, star of HGTV's Secrets From a Stylist. "It shouldn't be wildly different than your home's style, but you want to focus on making the art the best it can be. That way it will be timeless." If you're unsure of what works best with your art, Henderson suggests simple, modern frames, like Framatic's Woodworks or Ikea's Ribba line.
