If you are a regular follower of Black Velvet Chair you have probably realised that our abode is spread over three levels, Real Estate people would probably call it a “Townhouse style apartment”. The stairwell was left blank for many years, until it received a spruce up January 2011 & the short residency of Basil The Gazelle (until he decided he preferred the Guest Bedroom).
Over the past year I have been collecting White and Mirrored frames and pairing them with Black and White photographs. Whilst this area is still a work in progress I am loving how this part of the house is progressing. For the first frame instalment I laid out the frames on a bed before putting them up, but since then I have been adding to it one by one (Just making sure they are level).
The Floating glass frame (above right) was a thrifted find, it was dark timber when I purchased it, I laboriously applied many layers of white paint.
