Somebody’s Watching Me

Sorry for the radio silence.  My last two days in Paris were jam packed and I just got back last night.  I have a lot of photos to edit from my trip and a lot of great posts to come.  In the meantime, I’m leaving you with a post of portraits. I started this post before I left and funny enough, there was a photograph in an old gilt frame, a modern interpretation of a traditional oil portrait, in my room at the new London Edition Hotel.  I really want to start collection portraits but her eyes seem to follow me around the room which makes me a little unsure now.  Or maybe I just need to put them in a hallway.

    Love all of your examples of ancestor portraits, especially the one over the fireplace in Atlanta. My husband’s family had a similar one that his mother called “Uncle Fud.”

    Welcome home, Heather!
    I too, love portraits. But after watching Harry Potter a gazillion times with the kids, I have no desire to put them in my home. 😉
    Beautiful collection you have here!

    Absolutely love this post! Have always liked portraits…so much to think about…looking at them, wondering about their lives, history, etc. Portraits add personality to any style of interior decoration.

    Heather, It sounds like you had an amazing trip! I love to see historical portraits. I think a selection would be beautiful in your hallway!
