Q: I am renting my first apartment in the Midwest this fall and have been brainstorming ideas on how I am going to decorate. Thanks to Apartment Therapy I have come up with some great ideas! My problem is that I have this great framed picture (41 by 21) of Wrigley Field and I want to use it as a focal point in my living room. It's black and white...

.... so I want to add some color to the room but I don't want the color to overpower the picture. What colors go best with black and white photos? I hope the creative minds in the Apartment Therapy community can help me out! Any and all suggestions are welcome!
