Due to the rugged aesthetic, this distressed black picture frame pairs well with nature and wildlife imagery, from images of black bears, to snowy landscapes, to other outdoor scenery. In terms of color schemes, this frame is ideal with black and white and gray tones, along with earthy greens, browns, and blacks.
