Expect the unexpected.
We framed a black & white photo of a client’s children on the beach. They are looking off to the right, and the client wanted to do something different and unexpected with this piece, so we made the matting even all around except for the right side, making it twice as big as the other sides. This is unusual for many reasons. Matting is typically even all around or sometimes a little heavier on the bottom, called a weighted bottom.
And since the matting is unusual, we chose a simple profile in white gold.
The matting brings your eye to the right which is where the children are looking, which in turn brings your eye back to the children.
Sometimes an unexpected turn is exactly what is needed.
Think outside the box, and see the reward.
