Thoughts On Design


  • "Best framers in the city, I’ve used and been their client for 25+ years. No job too small or large. ‘Can’t do’ is NOT in their vocabulary. It’s an absolute pleasure doing business with them."

  • "Esprit Decor delivers perfectly professional service. We have been using them for years for various framing needs and the end product always look wonderful. Most recently they produced a “shadow box” for us with a picture of a grand opening event, some ribbon from the event, along with a pair of scissors and a silver plate with the event details. I appreciate being able to bring in a vague idea and letting them create works of art."

The Dog Days of Summer

temp-post-image
We all love our pets, and yes, it's the dog days of summer. Ever wonder how that term came about? Let's get Sirius for just a moment and we'll let you in on a little secret! It's Sirius, not serious, though. The reason for the term the "dog days of summer" goes all the way back to ancient Greece. The ancients saw the stars in the sky as connect the dots diagrams of all sorts of mythological figures. All of the astrological signs are represented in the stars, as well as a myriad of others: Cassiopeia, the Queen, Draco the Dragon, Lyra the Lyre, etc., etc. To make a long story short, in the summer months, starting around the summer solstice (June 20~21) the star Sirius would rise, just as the Sun was setting. Sirius is the brightest star in the nighttime sky, and represents the nose of the constellation Canis Major, or Big Dog.
A long time client brought us this original oil of her beloved dog, and together we decided on this lovely rustic charcoal scoop with silver accents to go with the color of her dog's coat. It is perfectly in keeping with our prime directive, which is that "great framing focuses attention on the art." Now, who wants a treat?
