Wood Frames 

Ah, the classics. The beauty of a wooden frame is timeless. It exudes warmth and is an ideal option for anyone who is on the minimalist bandwagon.

Dark Wood

Light Wood  

 This is best if colors like blues, greens, and lavender have taken center stage. Lighter woods include oak, ash, and pine. 

Monochromatic Frame (Black or White)

A solid-colored frame can genuinely accentuate the features of a picture when used correctly. No matter what you choose, black or white, they both carry the minimalist seal of approval. 

Black Frame
