Double mat often called a Double mount or a step mat is a great way of highlighting colours in a picture. Often the inner colour will be 5mm (1/4 of a inch) of a colour that is in the picture that is desired to be highlighted.

This framing technique allows for a more neutral colour to be used at on the top ensuring the finished framing job will suit most decors whilst still highlighting a dominant colour within the picture.
