Brighten Up Your Shelves With Picture Frames

Would you like to add a personal touch to your home or office, but not sure how? Picture frames may be your answer. Picture frames are a fun and simple way to add color, character and style.

Decorating with picture frames is fun and simple. To add a splash of color to a shelf or mantle choose a series of similar frames in coordinating colors, such as three shades of green. To set a theme in the bedroom stick with one basic color and two or three styles of frames, such as silver or pewter antique-style frames. Or to make a dramatic statement on a wall choose one bold color, such as black or deep red, and identical picture frames, such as simple squares. No matter what look you're trying to achieve, group picture frames together for impact.

Once you've decided on a style, it's easy to find the perfect picture frames. Department stores and home decorating stores are a good place to start. But don't forget about antique stores, flea markets, yard sales and thrift stores. These are all great places to find unique picture frames. Look for unique picture frames with beveled glass, unusual shapes, or matching sets.

Picture frames also make wonderful gifts and keepsakes. Decorate picture frames with silver charms, crystal beads, or grandma's antique costume jewelry to make a special keepsake. Create a family display of picture frames by adding a detail to each picture frame that reflects each family member's personality or hobby. For example, add a golf detail to dad's picture frame, a fishing detail to grandpa's picture frame, and a gardening detail to mom's picture frame. Scrapbooking supply stores are perfect places to find unique items to add to picture frames. Just imagine the items on a frame, or inside on the matting, instead of on a scrapbook page. There's no limit to the details you can add to a picture frame.

Whether you're creating a keepsake or brightening up a shelf, picture frames are one of the most fun and versatile decorating accessories available.
