Find Your Perfect Frame: The Vintage Lady

In a unique way, the custom framing process is much like falling in love. You start with literally thousands of choices. You don’t know exactly what you want and along the way you’ll cycle through some good ones, some ok ones and some downright bad ones. But over time you learn and when you find “the one” - you just know it.

In our new series, Find Your Perfect Frame, we’re exploring the journey that takes your piece from which one? to the one. This time around, a special lady calls for a special frame.

Yet, we felt the muted style of the painting was calling for something gild-y. A thick gold outer frame complemented by a thinner interior one may do the trick?
