I may or may not be in the minority on this one, but I have real soft spot for damask prints. When I first created the header and background graphics for Green Your Decor, my immediate instinct was to use two different, but complementary, damask patterns. I have since switched to a new design, but I’m still captivated by any home decor that makes use of such a classic style in a contemporary way. This wood frame is a perfect marriage of old and new. The frame is made of reclaimed lumber from old buildings, and it is covered in a silver/white graphic damask that makes it an instant standout.
I love the patina of old wood for small pieces like this, because it is incredibly organic and elemental, and at the same time, strikingly contemporary. I’d say that is a pretty good description of my overall decorating style. I can’t say I’d be terribly excited about paying more than $50 for a 4 x 6 frame, but if you caught me on a good day with a little extra dough in my pocket, I might be sold. Because with my new Nikon D40 digital SLR in my hands, there are lots of photos I could see fit to add to this frame.
