We love the wall of photos we saw recently at 1300 on Fillmore, a new restaurant devoted to honoring the storied Jazz Age for which the Fillmore area is known. Now we're curious, would anyone want to recreate the effect in their home?
Each sepia-toned picture features historical images of jazz greats who used to play in the area. The framed photos take up one whole wall of the restaurant and vary in size. They are all backlit, which creates a warm, kind of sexy glow throughout the room. The photos ground the space in the history of the area, while the design of the wall makes a modern statement. We also love the mismatched club chairs for adding a casual yet elegant vibe.
