Day 6 of Whispering Woods Gallery’s “Vintage is Now” features a series of snapshots from a warm spring day in 1955. The framed piece was given to the baby, now an adult, for a special birthday. The baby photos were a surprise as they had been tucked away in a cousin’s collection. We can tell that much thought and love went into the photography.
Although the framing looks simple, there’s a lot going on. It hangs in a modern shore home so the frame needed to be contemporary. We used a silver water gilded Larson Juhl frame made in France. To soften it a bit, a scooped fillet was added inside the frame. The mats are solid color neutrals of white with a pale gray. A v-groove with classic corner embellishment was added to group the photos into a collection.
Sharing real vintage photos is a sweet gesture that will delight the recipient. These photos will be admired by house guests and will be passed down for generations.
