"A large piece can look great in a small space," says Lisa. This silkscreen originally hung in the kitchen of her childhood home. She swapped the original frame for a silver one to give the piece new life.

Why this works The bold, colourful image lends depth and energy.

Tip Choose a frame that works with that art, not with the space it's destined for.
