  1. I could choose to fit the canvas print that I was ordering from to the pattern and color of the wallpaper in my living room. I could search
    for artwork by subject matter and even predominant colors. Then I customized the frame online because the site
    allowed me to match the frame style with different wallpapers, one of which looked like ours.
    So now have this canvas print by Pierre Bonnard,
