To add a touch of class to your home, try these tips for matching 'framed pictures'

Framed paintings are a common sight in all spaces, often serving as a visual focal point to make a space stand out. But framing is not simply a matter of choosing something that looks good, it is also a matter of many design tricks, and it needs to be coordinated with all aspects. The seemingly random mix and match often hides a lot of care. In this issue, we will talk about these tips.
Part 1 - Harmonising with the environment

In the Neolithic period, decorative motifs on painted pottery, such as animal, human and geometric motifs, were the original origin of 'decorative painting'. It did not need to be highly artistic, so nowadays we can see decorative painting in all kinds of patterns in all kinds of settings, but it is very much about harmonising with the environment.

Therefore, in addition to choosing the desired frame, the style of the painting should also fit in with the decoration and the main home style. Decorative paintings like greenery can play a very good decorative role when placed in this black and white style of home decoration.

As well as fitting in with the environment, there should be a correlation between the paintings, not some particularly brightly coloured and completely different couplets.

Part 2- Contrast the colour scheme with the environment
For rooms with a white colour palette, it is a good idea to choose any shade of colour for the frame. For rooms with warm and cool tones, if you want the frame to be the visual centrepiece, choose a painting in the opposite shade. It can contrast more strongly in terms of hue and purity, regulating the atmosphere of the room and becoming the finishing touch to the space.

For example, if the room is warm, then choose a cool colour for the painting and a warm framed painting for a cooler room. Dark grey walls like the one pictured below tend to look dark, and pastels are more likely to catch our eye in these framed paintings.

In terms of seasonal factors, paintings are a great decorative piece to regulate the temperature in your home. Warm colours are suitable for winter, cool colours for summer, green for spring and yellow-orange for autumn, although this variation presupposes that the room is white or a light colour close to white.

Part 3 - Pay attention to size and priority
With more than just one frame, if you just put your favourite photos on the wall in the same size, it can look stereotypical and uninteresting, and in large numbers it can be visually confusing.

You can use the size of the frame to present the main priority and choose a favourite frame as the focal point, which is relatively larger than all the others.

The size of the painting should also be determined by the characteristics of the room and the size of the main furniture, for example, in the living room, a height of 50 to 80 cm is appropriate.

The length should be determined by the wall or the length of the main furniture, and generally should not be less than 2/3 of the main furniture, for example, the sofa is 2 metres long and the overall length of the painting should be around 1.4 metres.

Part 4 - Order out of chaos, choose an alignment line
For the same size frames, the simplest nine-box grid is sufficient. If you are using different sizes of frames and want to create a sense of order in the chaos, you should at least have an alignment line so that all frames are equally spaced.

For example, the photographs are distributed above and below the central axis, using the principle of 'symmetry between the top and bottom of the main image and the oblique angle of the secondary image'.

If you are in no position to grasp it, you can also match it according to the picture below. We can see that they have at least one aligned vertical or horizontal line.

Part 5 - Composing with Mondrian's paintings
Mondrian, Malevich and Kandinsky were all pioneers of geometric abstraction and in the later part of their careers created a unique suprematism, known for its simple and abstract geometric forms. Their paintings can be cleverly applied to our framed compositions.

▲ Malevich's works
In the case of Mondrian's paintings, for example, his paintings could be used as typography for photographs, and the proportions of the squares in the paintings are standard and perfect.

▲ Mondrian
Find a Mondrian painting, pick a random area and arrange your photo wall to the scale of that area.

Part 6 - Installing shelves to create a sofa wall
If you don't want to hang it, you can choose to make a shelf behind the sofa and place a picture on it to decorate it.

Other small objects can be placed on the shelves to add a sense of visual hierarchy, remember to install the shelves at the same height as the back of the sofa for a more visually integrated look.

Do not choose a frame that is too thick and too wide for Scandinavian-style decorative paintings; a thin frame will be much more refined and echo the atmosphere.

Part 7- Choose a shop that only sells decorative paintings
When buying, try to choose a shop that only sells decorative paintings. A shop that specialises in paintings will have a strong bargaining advantage when communicating with the decorative painting factory, so the quality and value for money will be better than a shop that sells multiple items.
