Question Color for shadow box with this piece inside?

Hi.

Can you please help me decide the best color for the shadow box?

This is what I'll place inside:





This is the type of shadow box I'll be making:




Just like the one in the picture, the corners will be white, but what color should I use for the rest of the shadow box (the sides and back)?

It's for a friend's new apartment. She has zero decoration and her walls are white.

These are the colors I can choose from. Can you please propose more than one option? The shop might have ran out of a particular color.




Thank you in advance .

Hmm? TBH I love the black shadow box the best and it frames the artwork very well. Any color or combination of colors will pop on a black background.
Example: I think the green with a red background is great if you are shooting for Christmas colors, however red and green will not look good on say, a blue painted wall. The black color with colored accents would work better on any color wall. But thats just my opinion.

I would use blue. You need to figure out which blue though. The green has some specks of blue in it and placing it in a blue environment will pull out those and harmonize, imho.
