retro style

A friend who is a social caseworker had her first go-round in a frame shop--so glad it was mine!  One of her clients had drawn a fabulous caricature of her and she wanted to display it in her home.  We both admired the work, and thought it had a mod 60s quality about it and the design took flight.  Immediately I thought OVAL.

I took a measurement and found that we could do an exaggerated oval--a little taller and thinner than standard sized ones.  Perfect for a caricature!  We found just the right mat color--a blue-green, and paired it with a vintage-looking cream stripey textured frame.  

Très chic!
