We usually think of artwork as something that adds color to a home, but that's not always the case. Some pieces (like black-and-white photographs or antique maps) tend to be more neutral, not necessarily in terms of content but color-wise. If you're looking for a way to draw attention to a more subdued piece or collection, try painting the wall behind it a bold color.
The approach helps to unify a collection of clustered pieces or highlight one single stand-out piece. For a deeper look into each of these spaces, click through the links below.
