Decorating With Vintage Portraits

We have a few vintage portraits hanging in our home and they are easily one of our favorite types of artwork. A glimpse into the past, an air of mystery, and often, a sweet style of painting make these very easy to work into many different types of rooms and with varied styles of decor - take a peek at our gallery of examples gathered from around the web to see just how great they can look.

Shown above, left to right:

1. Colorful portraits on a dark walls from Chicago Home + Garden.
