Black and White

I went out to the shop, Aubergine Emporium, on Sunday which is my usual custom and practice.  Pat put together this great vignette of black and white and cream.  I think it looks great.  I love the color combo.  It reminds me of vintage aged paper with faded black print.  Everything here has French flavoring in it, but the textures and the paint finishes are all different, yet it all works perfectly together.  The delicate French chair is covered with leather.
 The frame below is aged to perfection.  It's just chippy enough to give it character.  I can just imagine the old photos it used to contain.
These bird prints are wonderful.  I just might have to try my hand at something like this with an image from the Graphics Fairy.
 Isn't this sign great?  I didn't paint it, but I wish I had.  The words say it all.

 Below is another example of black and creams and neutral.  This is brown mailing paper on the walls just tacked up with the riding hats and a wood mirror with beveled glass.  The riding hats are surrounded by a large gold frame.  This is a great look without being too feminine but still it is soft enough that it's not too masculine.
Thanks for stopping by.

No doubt about it, I just like signs. I think someone could put gibberish on one and I'd want to hang it in my house.
