Vintage Silhouettes


I love collecting old pictures from antique stores. My absolute favorite are vintage silhouettes. I want to add more to my collection. Let me show you a few I have collected and just decided to hang in my bedroom.

I wanted to match the color theme to my bedding and color palette in my bedroom.


Here is a closer look at them. I will be adding more to my wall. Eventually I want to fill most of the wall with vintage picture frames. My plan is to paint my bedroom a steel grey-blue. According to designer, David Bromstad, this color is hitting it's decorating stride. Striking a balance between masculine and feminine.


"The Ever Talented" Brian Neal Sensabaugh, Display Coordinator for Anthroplogie, (click here to tour his home) designed this lovely wall of vintage silhouettes, which I ADORE!

Another wall of silhouettes I ADORE!

Jamers, what more can I say that you are incredible. What a gift you have and I will be praying that the Lord opens up opportunities for you use this gift of interior design! I just got your e-mail and when I get back home I will e-mail you back. I ABSOLUTELY love the idea. I love you dear friend!

Linda- the E stands for Eternal, which is characterized by abiding fellowship with God.

I need to get some letters with my initials too! : )

I was just going to ask what the E was for too, and you want to know what my guess was?? - Eternal! I just knew it! :) Jamie I loved this post!!! Everything about it, cute cute cute! I love silhouettes too and I'd love to make a wall of all vintage ones. So fun.
