Design Tip 101

Notice how the white horse stands out from the dark mat border and the black background stands out when the same picture is surrounded with a light mat. The horse is the focal point so a dark mat is a great choice for it.

Family Space

Give your family some space. Don't crowd your family photo 

into a small frame. A mat provides breathing space so the 

photo becomes a stronger focal point on the wall.
