With the emergence of popular home renovation shows it’s never been easier to get insights into how the latest trends in home décor have evolved into their current form.
While it’s great to have a massive amount of information now freely available, it also means that trends for home décor are flying by faster than ever before, making it difficult to ever really stay “on trend” with your own home décor. Do you go from an antique-chic style? Or perhaps a mid-century aesthetic? Why not an industrial style?
As you can see, the choices are genuinely endless with this sort of thing, making it a genuinely challenging task to actually find something that’s going to stand the test of time. Thankfully, antique-style designer mirrors are making their own triumphant return to the world of home décor in a big way.
Why? Do you ask? Well, it’s a combination of a few things, timelessness, enduring elegance, and of course, that little special something that keeps them relevant - no matter what the future might bring.
So read on, fair home decorator, and discover what you can do to make your home a source of style inspiration for all of the right reasons.
Le Grand Fromage
If you’re looking for an instant injection of inspiration and style, then you never need to look further than a classic - the french mirror.
We’ve waxed lyrical about french mirrors before - and we’re about to do it again, so get ready. French mirrors are all about putting on a show and feature a wealth of detailing glamor to draw as much attention as possible. Situating one of these pieces in your living room or receiving room is a fantastic way to make an impression.
More minimalist versions of the french mirror exist as well and are perfect for those that prefer to have a more modernist take on their décor. These pieces are also similarly large and can be mounted on walls or made to casually lean to give a more laissez-faire vibe to your home.
If you’re short on space and you’re looking for the ultimate little pick me up for any room - then look no further than the boho mirror. These gorgeous works usually take advantage of more natural materials when framed and provide the perfect amount of quirk to make even the most boring space suddenly pop with personality!
Unlike more oversized mirrors, where the goal is to open up space, smaller mirrors work to create a focus on a specific space within a room and complete the visual tableau of the area. Think of them as like the cherry on top of a gorgeous velvety cake, a small addition that has significant implications.
You Can’t Destroy The Metal.
The metal-framed mirror embodies a timeless design. Sleek curves and a minimalist slant make these mid-century masterpieces the ultimate addition to just about any room in the home.
Looking for the perfect bathroom mirror? Go for metal.
Trying to find the ideal addition for a bland hallway? Try a metal framed mirror.
Can’t think of what to put on that odd space on the wall? Use that metal mirror.
With such an effortless elegance in design, the metal-framed mirror is the swiss army knife of home décor and will always be able to tie a room together - no matter what.
