Black Frames

I turned this post into a Gift It post just by suggesting this would make a good one, and they would!

“Get ready for your 15 minutes of fame. With a velvet front and nylon temples, these ultra-chic reading glasses will earn you some serious hipster cred”.


And then there is the other “classic black frame”.  The one I set out to write about. You really can’t go wrong with a thin black frame and a white mat.  The style suits almost any interior and adds a crispness and an articulation that is sharp, clear and just enough to make a statement.

And then, of course there are other versions of the “black frame”.  I have to admit I’ve never painted my trim black before, but I do like the way this kitchen looks… enough to consider doing it in one room of my own home, or perhaps a clients, but maybe not my White on White kitchen.  I might like it with a 20’s vibe black and white tile and the like, but this kitchen is pretty sweet, isn’t it? elizabethroberts49_8th_1
