Choose, frame and display. If you're keen to buy a Limited Edition Art Print for your home you'll need to give equal weight to these three things. Here's a few tips to help your process...
When choosing your print check out your home decor and if you're rocking all greys and browns then maybe it's time for some colour.
- Exception to the rule
Check out the pics below of my client's prints, which are exceptions to this rule. All the natural colours look so good together.
- Matting size
When framing your print give it more impact by putting a large matting around it. For my prints (as in pics below) I suggest an 8-10cm matting.
- Matting colour
When choosing a colour for your matting, if in doubt go for white-white. Chances are, off-white or some other colour you think could be a bit of fun won't be classy enough to last the test of time.
- Home decor
Display your print with complementary decor... furniture, plants, ornaments and couch pillows that aren't too loud and distracting.
Limited Edition Prints can be a good choice because they're cheaper than original paintings and they're still a collector's item since they're signed by the artist. The value of your print will grow over the years with the profile of the artist. Also, ink-jet giclee prints on acid-free paper can last up to 120 years before any colour change is apparent to the human eye.
I was so impressed with how one of my clients displayed their prints that I had to go around for a photo shoot! Hope you can get some inspiration from this:
