When choosing a mat for any piece of art, I like to get to know my customer’s taste—whether they lean neutral, or like some color in their décor.
Neutral Mats are Still Trending.
Believe it or not, 10 years ago I couldn’t sell a white mat. Clients found it too boring or ‘big box store’ looking. That trend has certainly reversed; and though neutrals are still a top choice, we are seeing pops of color in interior/exterior mats.
|DO: Neutrals are still great when you have a busy piece, or a busy background.|
|DON’T: Choose a larger mat that pulls the main color in the piece to avoid being too matchy-match. Instead, add a pop of color that pulls out an obscure color from the art.|
|DO: Mat color(s) should be chosen from within the piece, not within the room, to keep it timeless.|
|DO: Add a wow factor with color! Just look at these fabulous mat options that add a punch to more traditional art.|
