Picture Frames And The Stories Behind

"In the field of arts, perhaps the most wonderful and the most celebrated is the invention of the camera. Photography is simply defined as the process by which images are captured by an image-forming device through the use of especially-designed sensing medium. There are several types of still cameras such as digital, disposable, instant, field cameras and among others but their purpose is similar to each other, that is, to capture images and record events for future generations to see and to last a lifetime.

The power that still images have over us is astonishingly undeniable. Images of personalities, sceneries and even abstract art pieces have the ability to influence our opinions, principles, perspectives in life, judgment and even long-held cultural and family values.

We view photographs as touchstones to connect and reconnect families and remind us of people dear to us. How wonderful it is to see the first generation of your clan and see who looks like whom. How funny it is to see how your grandfather used to look like with hair on his head and your grandmother used to be so young and slim. How heart-warming to see a departed loved-ones framed picture on the corner vanity table, you terribly miss. Thus, our photographs live on, longer than our existence in this world to remind the future generation of their genetics, pride, legacy and sometimes shame.

These also serve as our remembrance of specific events such as birthdays, graduations, travels and even ordinary daily activities. Most mothers have a compilation of pictures of their babies milestones, from the first nail clipping to the first step ever made. Seeing old pictures definitely brings us back to the period where when the picture was exactly taken such that it bring so much laughter as stories are, again, narrated and recreated. Indeed, memories fade but photographs do not. Photographs have so much to tell long after we are gone.

Through pictures, we can market tourism. It is uncommon not to see pictures of dignitaries who stayed in whose hotels, dined in whose restaurants and among others. Their portraits are sometimes seen hanging on hotel lobbies walls, strategically located for everyone to see. Picture frames of the city or countrys top tourist destinations are also featured either on the lobby walls or corner coffee tables.

Photos record historical personalities and historical events for writers and historians to write about. Book pages become more exciting for readers because of the colorful pictures

Frequently Asked Questions...

I would like help picking colors for my kitchen & bathroom?

I have an old home built in the 1800's and my kitchen has light yellow ceramic tiles and my bathroom has peach/beige ceramic tiles on half of the wall. Can't afford to redo everything yet so I was just looking for new colors for both. Both have been painted cornflower blue, the kitchen looks nice, almost mexican style (I am spanish) but I want a change. I am looking for colors that would go with those particular tile colors. I have beige paint that was given to me but I am not sure that is the way to go. It feels bland, Painted my hallway that leads into the kitchen brick brown, any help is appreciated. thanks

Best Answer...


I think you're right with the beige paint ... a little too bland. Did you want to paint the kitchen and bath the same color ... or separate colors all together?

I like to find inspiration pieces to work from ... anything that has colors in it that are appealing to me, whether it's a throw pillow, necktie, ladies scarf, bedding piece, fabric swatch, or abstract art poster.

For example, when thinking about your kitchen, I looked for throw pillows with yellow in them on Yahoo Search and found this:

Yellow pillow

The tiger lily in the center or the floral section may have that same soft yellow tone that's in your kitchen. With this as an inspiration piece, I'd paint the walls a warm green (a light shade of something in the olive family); then I'd accessorize with soft blue and raspberry/pink tones.

Go to http://www.benjaminmoore.com/bmpsweb/portals/bmps.portal?_nfpb=true&_windowLabel=contentrenderer_1_2&contentrenderer_1_2_actionOverride=%2Fbm%2Fcms%2FContentRenderer%2FrenderContent&contentrenderer_1_2cnp=public_site%2Farticles%2Fmain_page_articles%2Ffh_explorecolor&contentrenderer_1_2np=public_site%2Farticles%2Fexplore_color%2Fec_virtual_fan_deck&_pageLabel=fh_explorecolor
and look for color 2028-40, Pear Green and/or 2029-40, Stem Green. These are the shades of green I'm thinking of.

Perhaps you could do kitchen curtains with blue and red in them ... and a little bit of green so it "speaks" to the walls:

Cherry Pillow, close-up

(I know this is a pillow case, but it can be made into cafe curtains pretty easily).

I know not many older homes have eat-in kitchens, but in case you do ... here's an idea for place mats (red tied to green):


And also some 'display' dishes (blue tied to green):

Green and blue

Insofar as the bathroom, the same color scheme will work in it, but in case you want to paint it in a separate color, why not a chocolate brown for the walls, then use a rich accent color - like red - for towels, candles, and other accessories.


These towels are red with some brown in the border; they also offer green and rust tones which can be played up in the space.

Believe it or not ... adding green house plants to both areas (whether they're live or silk) will really give a warm, homey look to each space instantly. You don't need big ones, and you don't need many.

Hope this was helpful ~
