MIRROR MIRROR ON THE WALL
Mirror, Mirror on the wall, how do I make my walls look tall? Mirrors are an important element in decorating. They function to reflect light, opening spaces and creating new balance to any room. When I shop for a mirrors, I look for textured framing, unusual shapes, a mixture of contemporay and traditional frames, and unusual combinations. Sometimes a collection of small mirrors can take the place of one statement mirror, while other times there’s only one.
I found this mirror at an antique center in Stamford, CT. I loved the size and the metal framing. Inside the workroom at Tiger Lily’s Greenwich, I peeled back some of the heavy paint with an electric sander. It gave me new color tones and allowed for different shading to peek through. I finished the frame with a clear varnish. It now hangs in a client’s front foyer creating an amazing openess to the space while giving everyone one last chance to look in the mirror before heading out the door!
