Good Questions: Best Frame to Showcase Hope Print?

ATDC reader Nicole wants some framing advice:

"Hi ATDC- I just recently purchased the 'Hope' print by Lorena Vigil-Escalera Guirado from Wall Blank. I'm having trouble figuring out how I should frame it. Should I go with a white matte that would complement the colors in the print, with a dark frame, use a colored matte somehow, or just frame it without any matte? I'd love any suggestions on colors to use for the matte, frame colors, etc. The majority of my home uses dark wood, so I'm kind of hoping to stick with that somehow. I've attached a picture of the print, taken from the Wall Blank site.

Thanks! Nicole"

Nicole,
We think a white mat with a dark frame would be striking, and would help make this print a centerpiece on your wall. If you don't want a mat, then a white frame might help keep the print bright. Do any of our readers have other suggestions?
