Marcus Design: Boldly overmatted
"Displaying personal photographs and artwork in a bold and glamorous way is a bold, yet affordable way to update your home decor. I've implemented this in many ways in my own home, but there is one particular way that seems to get a lot of attention and compliments: Personal photos in overmatted frames. They look bright, fresh, modern and deceivingly pricey, but they are as budget-friendly as artwork can get!
In my own living room I purchased inexpensive artwork at my local big-box store just for the frames. I tore out the pictures and mattes that where included. I then had mattes cut with windows to my exact specifications at an art supply store for under $10 each! After printing personal photos in black and white at home, placed them in my newly overmatted frames, and voila! A chic and bold look that you'd never guess was budget-conscious." -- Nancy
