The problem with greyscale drawings is that there’s no colour! How then does one frame this type of work to make it warm and appealing?

The answer is, use coloured mounts!

I prefer a coloured mount with a white insert if working on white paper or board. If you are using a coloured paper, repeat that colour as an insert inside your main mount. Always double mat(board) your work. It looks much better than a single mount.

For a frame, I often use a simple, matte black moulding; elegance without being too obvious.

Greyscale drawings can be dull and unexciting. Good framing will do wonders to any artwork.
