What's Wrong with This Picture?
(The Frame!)

Good Questions

Q: This is a picture my uncle-in-law made for our apartment and had framed for us. It's about 100x70 cm. I like the picture, but not the frame:

Right now we are waiting to "graduate" to some kind of style, but I think it will fall somewhere between modern organic and warm industrial. We have pale cement-gray floors and white walls, and I really like the white/black/gray, cream/wood/green palette, so... the picture has not been hung yet.

Also: we have a little baby and I'm working on his room. I'm thinking blue, purple, orange, red… all the colors we don't have in the rest of our home. ;) So maybe the picture will work in his room. But I still think it needs a better frame. Any suggestions?
