I gave a client a quick tip on styling frames. Here's the before and after (by the way that is a framed newspaper from the day of Lincoln's assassination).
|Before: Frames were too small and out of scale with the large hanging frame.|
They looked a little cluttered and had no presence.
|After: Its better to have less and large (this goes for accessories too) than small |
and out of scale. Now the larger frames compete with the framed newspaper
and the look is cleaner and simple.

Another example of some simple frame styling. I love to layer frames and then add a decorative element such as a vase of flowers, apothecary jar or even a simple large candle. Just remember large and less when it comes to styling.
