(This was taken last year on our way to a Medieval Times event...I highly recommend taking the family. We loved it!)
This post is actually about MIRRORS!
I love to add mirror to home decor, but in less expected ways. Most of us have mirrors on our walls, and if you do, take a moment now (yes, right now...I'll wait for you) to ensure that your mirrors are hung in an area where they reflect something attractive. If they don't, then you might want to consider finding a better location. If you've got something really special and beautiful in your room, wouldn't it be nice to see it twice? (In the reflection of your mirror, silly!)
While I like a few mirrors on the wall, I actually prefer to hang precious artwork on the walls and to use mirrors in more unique ways. (I am an artist, afterall and do need to support my trade!) So let's look at a few other ways in which to use mirrors, shall we?
Mirrored Backsplash (I love the pretty little accent rosettes at each point!)
Another beautiful mirrored kitchen backsplash from Canadian House and Home
Mirrored Chargers will add class and elegance to any dinner table!
Look at this beautiful wedding reception and notice how the mirrored chargers reflect the candlelight on the tables!
I go crazy over mirrored side tables like this one...I don't own one yet, though!
If you must hang more mirrors on the wall, consider these precious little shell mirrors in large doses to make a huge impact.
And this one is a surprise for my mother-in-law...she spotted similar hand mirrors used in a showroom display and has been talking about them and trying to find them, ever since. Boy, and I going to score big ol' brownie points for finding them for her at Z Gallerie! When she reads this post, I'm sure she will share a comment about this great find! Wouldn't these be ADORABLE on a wall in a little girl's room? (I'm determined to use them in a future design plan!)
Last, but not least...this princess does enjoy being swept off her feet by the prince once in a while. In my fairytale, my prince would be riding a large white steed (I did grow up on a horse farm, afterall) but realistically, I'm better off hoping he at least picks me up in a super cool limo. And since pink is my favorite color, I'd like it to be in this cool pink limo with, of course, lots of fun mirrors inside to reflect the big smile on my face! Just hoping my dear princely hubby finds that reflection to be one of beauty! Afterall, it's HIS opinion that matters most.
