If you have them printed in a standard size (8x10, for example) you can buy standard picture mats and frames, and replace the print down the road when you are looking for some thing new for your decor.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]I love big bold colors, and tropical rooms can really show those off. But for a lot of people, it's just too much. Many folks don't want to commit to that much POW in their home - and that's perfectly understandable. So today we bring you some tips in achieving that lush, tropical look, without having to transform your living room (or bedroom, or sunroom....)  into the deep, dark jungle.

So if you've ever thought about getting a little more lush in your home, try a few of these tips. And don't forget to add a tropical drink. I'll bring the little umbrellas![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
