Mirrors make such beautiful design statements…now take this one for example….the top is just breathtaking.
And the finish is wonderful because its a champagne metallic….a little gold…a little silver.. and just the tiniest bit of black.
You can put it almost anywhere (that it will fit – it is tall at 63″) and it will blend into almost any color scheme. It will add an architectural element to your room. Of course the “old world elegance” makes it look like you carried it back from les puces de saint-ouen. Mmmm let’s go back!
There little ovals are perfect for powder rooms….at 31″ L x 25″ w but they will make for a pretty collage too mixed in with some great artwork.
This last mirror is one I have blogged about before. It is so elegant and versatile. You can lean this 73″high mirror or hang it. You can hang it vertical or horizontal – design your room around it! Simple.Beautiful.Elegant. Perfect!
I have been in the new shop location now for one month and yesterday i received my first large freight order…in the pouring rain with nowhere to conveniently take delivery. I must say you can get pretty innovative when you have too. But i do miss the basement at my old location. Sigh…
The arched mirror above is one of the large mirrors that came yesterday…its very shabby chic and looks great in the Paris Boudoir.
This one i had stashed away but since we sold a piece of art…it got a chance to hang on the wall. What a crime that i didnt hang it sooner…
Here’s another one that is now unpacked and leaning on top of a beautiful habersham console. It’s one of my favorite mirrors.
the window treatments for the Paris Boudoir windows are almost complete…i have a few touches to add to the cornice boxes…but that is a surprise!
Last night I hung readymade (!!) sheers which i trimmed with a 5″ bullion fringe and the drapes which are a beautiful striped silk trimmed with a ball tassel beaded fringe…i must have fiddled with them for an hour to get a look i liked…i got in these pretty little crown buckles and they look fabulous on the cord that i used to hold the drapes back…in the picture i have them scotch taped on (sorry bout that) – after i decided i liked it i attached them better!!!
My mom sewed all the pillow cases for the bedding…she does a beautiful job! These are all Fabricut fabrics and the pillows are all filled with a 90/10 down fill – very nice and squishy! The beaded tassel fring is Robert Allen and the bullion fringe is from Brimar. The little tassel at the top right corner is Trimland.
Under our beautiful casual swag (also made by my mom, Pat) I hung an shaped mirror that has a very vintage feeling.
Yesterday we brought some beautiful mirrors onto the shop floor (I should say lugged as they were very heavy…the detail is amazing though! Always worth the trouble!
The picture above is a catalog picture so we snapped a few other photos after depositing it in its new home in the shop. The iron top is so pretty – very simple yet elegant.
This one doesnt look that great in the catalog photo yet in person its beautiful and it would make a great leaner mirror at 73″ high. The picture below is the same mirror where we leaned it in the shop.
The mirror below is one that truly has presence…the frame is so wide and the ornamentation so regal.
Here it is in the shop – leaning at 60″ high it reflects everything around it!
Ok i know this one seems small after all those big ones but it really is a beauty too.
I cant wait to put this one in the Paris Boudoir on the little skirted Dressing table.
We didnt get this one but i included it cause its a favorite and it will probably be here again soon!
Mirrors truly make a room more beautiful and we love making a design statement with them.
