Colorful Picture Frames & Matboards

Looking to add color to your walls, but don’t want to commit to a bright frame? You can still get the desired effect by opting for a more neutral color frame and pairing it with a fun matboard color instead! The two main purposes of matboards are for decoration and protection. Matboards can serve as an additional decoration to your photograph or artwork. When the right color is chosen, it can help draw your eye toward the framed piece!

Matboards also protect the photograph or artwork by separating it from the glass (Lens Cover). This is important because condensation can build up inside the glass, which can result in water damage to the framed piece. It’s a great option for those who may want to swap artwork out occasionally, or if you have really busy artwork that’s difficult to match to a frame color.

Our favorite matboard vibrant colors to inspire you, include:

  • 💧Aqua Blue
  • 🦩 Hot Pink
  • 🍋 Buttercup
  • 🧡 Tangerine
  • 🌺 Hollyhock
  • 🍇 Grape

Check out our huge variety of available matboards. We recommend pairing it with a frame in a white or black finish, like our Ashford frame – a wooden frame with straight lines and classic styling that lends itself to both modern and traditional decor.

Colorful Picture Ideas

Don’t want to commit to a vibrant frame or matboard? You don’t have to! You can get colorful designer space by using a neutral frame finish and matboard and using colorful artwork instead. By combining a neutral frame and white matboard, your art will stand out in stark contrast and will draw the viewer’s eye directly to it! This is a great option for art collectors who want to focus on the artwork more than what’s framing it!

You can source a free colorful picture from a variety of places! Your best bet is to explore our guide to our favorite sites for free downloadable art. If you’d rather start browsing images now, head to Unsplash for a plethora of colorful imagery. Once you find the perfect art piece, we can print your digital file for you! We recommend you pair it with a gold, white, or black frame, like our Dayton frame, and a smooth white, cloud, or bamboo matboard.

Accent Walls

If you’re feeling extra crafty, you can amp up your decor with a visually stunning accent wall! Accent walls are usually single feature walls with either a splash of bright paint, wallpaper, or shiplap. They add warmth and depth to a room, and they look great with a few pieces of snazzy framed art displayed on them! Depending on what colors you select for your accent, you’ll want to adjust your frame and matboard selections accordingly. The brighter the color, the more neutral you’ll want your frame and matboard combo.
