Beautiful Mirrors Over Furniture

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

I hang or lean mirrors all over my house and I have at least one mirror in every room.  I find it adds light, reflection and a bit of shine. I really love hanging mirrors over consoles or buffets or any kind of furniture really. I never hang my mirrors too high as I want them to be part of the grouping below as you can see in the first photo....which is in my dining room. I also love it when the mirror is really large compared to the furniture it is hanging above. Super tall or as wide as the furniture it makes a statement every time and is always a focal point in the room. 

Enjoy!

Renovation Redux

This wonderful 90 year old home needed a major renovation that no one wanted to tackle. Eventually bought by a young family with many craftsmen in the family to help them along the way.  They did a lovely job keeping some of the original features and changing when necessary. The hallway tile that was moved from another room in the house is from the 20's and vintage lamps, mirrors and furniture are found throughout the space. Love the olive tree in the hallway!

Colourful Stripes 

I really loves stripes in decor...I find it can add at touch of whimsey to a space, it can add a preppy look or even feel traditional in the right home. It can make a space look wider or longer depending on the placement and it can also provide a sense of structure to a space as well. It mixes super well with other patterns like florals or checks and can be used in fabrics, painted on rugs, floors, walls or anything else you can think of...and you know what....it always looks amazing.

Dorm Decor

We moved my daughter into her dorm room at college this week and of course how she was going to decorate her new room was very important to her and to me as well. She looked for inspiration months in advance and we ended up buying a lot of things for her room at West Elm. There are a lot of rules around what you can and can't do so it makes it rather difficult to add decor...no nails in the wall or anything that can make marks...no painting or real changes to the structure of the room. We moved around the furniture as best we could and added pictures to the walls with washi tape and frames that were placed on the wall with a special velcro that can be removed without damaging the walls (we will see if that is true in about 8 months). 

Here are a few ideas that can be adapted to dorm rooms....and my daughters room at the bottom. It still needs a few more pillows but we will add those soon....

New York Eats

While we were in New York this week we went to some of the most interesting and delicious restaurants so I thought I would share. As I said yesterday...and well, many times before...my favourite store is ABC Carpet and Home so naturally I love to eat at the two restaurants in the ABC store location. On Friday night we went to ABC Cocina, which is Tapas style and was it ever good! It is such a pretty restaurant and amazing food. Love the mix of lamps thoughout the restaurant. On Tuesday night we ate at the second ABC resto called ABC Kitchen. Both of the places use the most wonderful handmade pottery as their dinnerware and the whole feeling is very organic, handmade and earthy. 

We also ate at Spice Market...owned by the same restaurateur, Jean-George Vongerichten......Really the best meal of the week...spicy food with a mix of wonderful flavours. Again the decor is amazing.

Lastly I discovered a Korean restaurant on Broadway called Barn Joo. Delicious and fun. 

Try some of these out next time you are in New York.
