This 1 1/2” wide, rustic wood picture frame moulding features a blue-gray wash over a rough grain, textured surface on a flat profile face. The texture of the rough grain pattern offers a warm wood color on the high points, with blue-gray wash filling the low points or crevices.
The feel of this rustic wood picture frame could be described as a winter mountain lodge-style design where snow sports and winter recreation is prevalent. For residents living in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, and of course, Alaska, this rustic wood picture frame captures the spirit and celebrates the season of cold weather, snow, wildlife, and rugged living.
The rough grain finish and wide profile shape is a nod to the pioneering days before electricity, when logging and gold mining were major industries out West, and lumber was rough-cut using hand tools. Wider lengths of lumber in this late 19th century era were also common, as it required additional labor to produce thin mouldings, and resources for wide planks were abundant.
Possible art themes for this blue-gray wash, rustic wood picture frame include representational artwork that features polar bears, winter landscapes, vintage snowshoes, forests and trees, wolves, coyotes, deer and elk, and other wildlife scenery. Additional possibilities include beach scenes, and Cape Cod or Nantucket imagery. For decorative interior design, consider this rustic wood picture frame for beveled mirrors in your living space or lodge.
