It’s time for our series Vintage Picks of the Week! We scour the internet looking for just the right piece of vintage to add to our decor, and include ideas on how we think these pieces could be used.
The Picks this week are brought to you by Laurie at NextStage Vintage .
Now that we live in a digital world, vintage collectors of the future may not have the option of collecting vintage photographic portraits from today. But today, it’s not hard to find vintage portraits to enjoy.
Vintage portrait of a woman
What I Like About It: The wistful look on her face is very fetching. The ornate carved frame is the perfect finish in every way.
How I Would Use It: The styling on the product shot says it all. I would make a pretty tableaux using brass with a gorgeous patina and of course some candles.
Hand colored woman’s photograph
What I Like About It: I love the softness of hand colored photographs from the 1930s, 40s and 50s.
How I Would Use It: I would add other ephemera from the era to create a shadow box.
Vintage bridal portrait
What I Like About It: Wedding portraits are among the most common vintage images, for obvious reasons. But to find a painted portrait is much less common.
How I Would Use It: I would perhaps use it in a wall grouping showing women at all stages of life.
