With the Autumn season now in full swing, there are a lot of folks out there that could be feeling something known as the “Autumn Blues.” This phenomenon is sometimes referred to as “seasonal mood change” and affects people as the seasons change. Seasonal mood changes usually occur most commonly when the season specifically transition from warm to colder temperatures.
Going through any sort of seasonal emotional change is tricky and makes daily life that bit more challenging for some. Thankfully, one of the best ways to manage any kind of emotional shift resulting from your environment is to change your surroundings. For example, refreshing your décor is a trick used by designers and decorators for decades and can be simple when you know how to use the most transformative furniture pieces in your home - mirrors!
In today’s blog, we’re going to take a look at some of the best ways that you can counter those Autumn blues by using designer antique sunburst mirrors.
Starry Days & Nights
A key element to the Autumn season is the visual splendor of nature as the outside world changes from the lush greens of spring and summer into the warm browns and oranges of the fall. But, of course, that transition of colors also comes with lower temperatures on the whole, with overcast skies and prevalent winds becoming more likely as the season continues.
For many, this lack of color and warmth in the day can be exhausting and make the hours drag. So naturally, the solution to this is to punch some new colors into the home.
Sunburst mirrors are exceptional at this, taking advantage of a mirror’s already fantastic ability to enhance the natural light in its surroundings and combine that with a frame that expands outwards to redefine the space it occupies.
Our Lua Gold Sunburst Mirror is a fantastic example of this. It combines mid-century aesthetics into an expansive metal frame that can easily brighten a space while engaging any viewer.
Of course, sunburst mirrors don’t need to be limited by metal surroundings or bright colors to brighten a space successfully. Our Langley Round Teak Wood Wall Mirror is perfect for a more casual and intimate vibe for those who want to take a more subtle approach that embraces natural materials.
A wood-framed sunburst mirror is perfect for those that treasure the aesthetics of Boho and Rattan styles but want something that grabs attention more readily. Furthermore, wooden framed sunburst mirrors are fantastic for taking the edge off the more wild elements of their metal counterparts and creating a more measured approach instead.
These softer edges and more natural colors make the wood-framed sunburst mirror perfect for bedrooms or home offices, where a more intimate atmosphere is needed to keep your mood up.
