Matching Your Mirror to the Latest Interior Color Trend
The current year has thrown up some exciting curveballs regarding what kind of decor is preferred in the home.
In years past, the desire for home decor has been to be as non-invasive and minimalistic as possible, with calm, even balmy colors dominating the landscape of interior paints. However, with over a year-and-a-half of lockdowns and quarantines becoming part of daily life, attitudes towards interiors have shifted considerably.
As a result of this shift, interior decor trends have changed to accommodate more attention-grabbing features while mixing in deep yet calming color palettes for the home.
In today’s blog, we will explore some of these interior color trends and how these can impact your next antique designer mirror purchase.
Seafoam & Gold
One of the bolder new additions to many homes is the proliferation of deep green colors. Walls are now getting painted with dense, striking colors that can calm the soul while evoking a feeling of vigor and renewed energy. Green is a powerful color for enhancing the energy of a space, while the more profound and darker shades make the home seem more intimate and safe at the same time.
Combining a mirror with these types of colors is a dream as you can get wild with your choices. There is, however, one rule - it has to be gold. Gold is a fantastic counterpoint and complements deep seafoam, and jungle greens, with both colors allowing others to pop.
So, while just about any design is perfect for these color types, we’d recommend going big and complimenting your walls with a powerful statement piece - such as a French Mirror, to really make the most of the deep interiors.
Get a Little Earthy
In a similar vein to the sudden popularity of seafoam and other deep green palettes in the home, the past year to 18 months has also seen the return of the 90s classic - earth tones. Specifically, and bear with us here, pastel colors.
That’s right; the pandemic has seemingly opened a wormhole back into the 90s and early 2000s, bringing with it the mighty pastel colors that our parents loved so much 20 years ago.
Why? Well, the reason seems to be the desire of homeowners to go back to a more straightforward color palette that emphasizes a return to nature as a critical theme. This is honestly unsurprising given the fact that most people have been stuck in their homes for much longer than they would have liked.
Combining a mirror design with earthy pastels is no easy feat and requires a leap of faith to really work. With muddy browns and neutral shades becoming even more popular, the trick here is double down on the natural materials.
So turn back the time machine a bit further, to the 60s specifically, a be sure to grab a Boho or Rattan mirror on your way back! Bohos and Rattans emphasize natural materials in their frame, making the perfect accompaniment to walls painted in earthy pastel colors!
