Three new ways to style a French home accessory we’re guessing you already have.
The past few years, ornate Parisian style vintage (or made-to-look vintage) gold mirrors have dominated the market. They are commonplace on Pinterest boards and often take up residence on our Instagram feeds. Needless to say, we’re guessing many of you may already have one in your home.
As we move apartments and houses, it’s important to allow your furniture and decor to grow with you versus attempting to restage each living space—a benefit to neither the environment nor your wallet. Often a hefty investment, the aforementioned gold mirrors can fit in a variety of spaces. A traditional home can emphasize its gilded quality, while that same antique-feel can add depth to a more modern space. Moving on to placement alone, rest yours atop the mantle, in your entryway, or simply on the floor—the options are endless. Continue on to discover three new ways to style a gold mirror in any space.
Atop the Mantle + Statement Rug + Dark Coffee Table
Resting a mirror on your mantle is a great way to draw the eye upwards, especially when many items in your home are eye level or below. We love the way Madelynn Furlong mimics the curvature of the mirror with modern minimal furniture.
Resting on the Floor + Statement Couch + Natural Elements
A great solution to an intimidating expanse of empty wall space is to simply rest a large mirror against it. A detail not to be overlooked, this also means you won’t have to mount a heavy object.
Above a Chest of Drawers + Artwork + Floral Curtain
Fill up a nook by resting a smaller scale mirror atop a chest of drawers, then compliment its ornate frame with vintage artwork and floral curtains.
