Baroque, you’re no joke.

14 Jan

I’ve been seeing a lot of Baroque style frames lately, and I’m diggin it.

Baroque (pronounced /bəˈroʊk/ bə-rohk in American English or /bəˈrɒk/ in British English) is an artistic style prevalent from the late 16th century to the early 18th century in Europe.

It’s pretty amazing how a style with such ancient roots can be transformed into something with such a modern feel.   My favorite thing about these Baroque frames and wall art is that you can go bright, without going tacky. I am not usually one who gravitates towards pink (and hot pink at that) and yet I am loving this look!

These frames suite the shabby chic look quite well!  Try them in white!

The ornate detailing makes the frames art in themselves, so feel free to forgo the picture and decorate with some vinyl wall stickers.  Clever, eh?

    YAY! I made the blog!!! FYI, for anyone who likes that gift I gave Jenny, it’s from an old client of mine, LAMPS PLUS. Looks like they don’t have that exact one listed anymore, but they have tons of other really cool accent mirrors! Check them out.
