Matt Framing Options for Mother and Child Portrait

Trying to decide on which matt looks best with this portrait, the warm matt with a single bright bevelled edge or the bright white double matt. I like them both and I think either would work well. The warm matt has a bit of texture and is a warm off white whereas the double matt is smooth and bright so would be more of a contemporary feel. I don't have the large double matt in the 18x24" size so I just took a close up photo of a 16x20" matt. Once my client decides on the matt, I will put the frame together and post a photo of the framed portrait for the full effect :)

Thanks Meera :) Yes the client chose the double matt as well. The single matt looks nicer in real life as you can see it's warmth and texture more but I think I prefer the double matt as well as I really like the bright white. Unless I get too lazy, I plan on taking a photo of both matts once framed & will post :)
