Ring in the New Year with Gold and Silver Picture Frames

The sheen of gold and silver has its own unique charm and this charm extends to picture frames. You can greet the New Year with a new look. By simply adding gold and silver picture frames in strategic areas, you can easily update the look and atmosphere of any room.

In fact, one of the top interior design trends for 2016 is the use of metallic decorative elements. The wise use of “shiny things” can be combined with well-thought-out lighting, a neutral palette (with bold colors as an accent), as well as the use of varying textures such as wool, mohair or velvet.

Silver and gold picture frames work well for both modern and classic portraits. These frames can also hold mirrors to quickly add light and warmth to the room. You can even use empty frames to add depth and texture to walls and shelves.
