Whenever we acquire an original sketch, we wish to highlight it, just like a painter's canvas.

The selection of the frame is very important. Frames that have glass or plastic front protector and cardboard backing are the best, since they will protect the drawing.

You can find simple and affordable frames at  IKEA or other decoration shops. You can also choose to meet a professional framer for advice.


Showcasing the Sketch 

There are many options to display sketches around the house: it can be hung by itself, part of a mosaic or be placed on a table or shelf. Here are a few examples of sketches shown in different parts of the house in various arrangements:

BACKGROUND WALL COLOUR

Dark wall ? 

If the wall on which you wish to hang your sketch is dark coloured, chose a drawing that is black and white to create a dramatic effect. If you have colourful objects nearby or in the same room, hang images that have similar colours to bring the room together.

LIGHT COLOURED WALL


Dark border frames are ideally hung on white or light coloured wall. Larger sketches can be placed over furnitures or fireplace; or within a wall mosaic surrounded by smaller pieces.


TEXTURED WALL

Hanging a sketch on a textured wall or background can create a very interesting look. For this look, we used a frame that not only has thick borders, but also has ornaments; and hung it on a tiled bathroom wall! Don’t be scared to try different types of frames and different looks!
