Breathing New Life into Old Pieces

We recently framed these two beautiful family photos of a client’s ancestors. These are older photos and we wanted to stay true to the time period but also freshen them up.

On the top photo from the 1940′s we chose a thin white gold frame with light antiquing and a 2-3″ white mat. The look is clean and streamlined much like the design aesthetic from that time period.

On the photo below from the late 1800′s, we framed it up to the edge with spacers, Museum Glass and a carved, heavily antiqued white gold frame with a leaf corner decoration. The frame’s finish and style are true to the time period but keeps the overall aesthetic simple.
