When one of my favorite frame stores, Aaron Brothers asked me “What would you frame?”. I immediately thought of these precious items I have had carefully packed away for years. Each of these pieces were gathered by my husband and I on our honeymoon to Portugal and Spain oh like a decade ago. Ugh I just aged myself BUT I can not believe it was 10 years ago and what a perfect way to celebrate our marriage with this gorgeous piece of art of our things.
Recently we updated our master bedroom and I am still working myself around the room doing the rest of it. Our colors are very subtle and mostly neutral with small pops of aqua. I love that even 10 years ago that was a favorite color of mine when I purchased this silk scarf in Porto. It now perfectly ties together with the rest of our room.
I loved going into Aaron Brothers in McKinney and working with their design professionals. They are so brilliant at what they do and I literally went in there and said, “I can’t wait to see what you do with all this stuff because I have no idea what to do!” They are able to design with you (when you schedule a complimentary design appointment) your master piece and show you on a computer screen what it will look like when it is done. I mean it really makes it so much easier to visualize what you are putting together.
For me I knew I wanted really personal touches to this. I had brought in our travel guide book that we had taken notes in and highlighted. The ladies suggested we take some pages out I loved and use them in our collage. Am I ever happy we did that!! This map is marked with the spots we went up the river and highlights of our favorite places. I have not looked at this in years and now I can look at it every day!
This room has a lot of neutrals and I knew I wanted a frame that would tie in with all that. Did you know they have over 700 moulding choices and 400 mats? I was easily able to find a frame that had a antique look to it and made my collage pop. Speaking of popping, I love the touch of celedon green we used to border the art for the mat. Isn’t it just gorgeous? And it matches the pillows on our bed.
