Mirrored Picture Frame Mattes in Frank Steuve's Home

Cool Idea: Mirrored Mattes

Perusing Freunde von Freunden, a German The Selby-esque photography site, I fell in love with the home of Villa Harteneck managing director Frank Steuve. His home is absolutely glamorous, with very neoclassical elements alongside modern furnishings — such a happy juxtaposition. One of my favorite elements was the wall of black and white photographs in his living room. Not only were the images of African children downright captivating, but they were matted with mirror . . . mirror! The glass reflects the light and the room's killer furnishings beautifully, and it's nearly impossible to keep your eyes off of them. I'm calling my frame shop ASAP. What do you think?
