I said, YES!
He sent me images of his inspiration. The design was totally in my wheel house. I loved the idea, which makes my job so much easier and way more fun.
To find 50+ old frames. To create a collection that works well together, but looks mix- matched and created over years, like a family portrait wall.
Modern, vintage with a black, white and maybe gold palette was my guidelines.
Not as easy as I thought, but after scavenging through every goodwill, thrift-shop, antique shop & old folks home rummage sales(jackpot!!!) I had a nice collection of 70+ frames to edit and craft the perfect mix. I got them home, cleaned them all, washed the glass, tossed the ones that did not make the cut and laid them out. Yeah!
Boxed them all up delicately (most had the glass, which I wanted) and delivered then straight to Alistar and his creative team to complete the design. I got his approval, which meant everything!
