Last night I stayed up late (really, really late…my neighbor was actually leaving for work). It seemed like a great time to check out Father’s Day gifts for Mr. B., so I went to a very well known website to see if they had any suggestions. I did a search and these are the products that came back, an air conditioner unit that fits in a window (umm….not until we retire), kitchen cart (Really? A kitchen cart? I can’t even imagine Mr. B. wheeling anything around the kitchen), a Leather Recliner with a cup holder (makes more sense), Satin P.J.’s (Hmm….Mr. B. in satin not going to happen), a telephoto zoom lens (Not unless he has plans to become the neighborhood “Peeping Tom”). Needless to say, the search did not help me in the least…so off to the local mall to get him a few T-Shirts since the Fashionista thinks we should glue sparkle onto a few (her idea), and I am totally game and will be happily poised with a camera to take a few “bribery shots”.
If you missed my announcement, I’ll be posting on a regular basis during the week (P.S. I’m taking weekends off, hey a girl has to have a little time off…). So check back daily for lots of design inspiration. What I was absolutely in a quandary over yesterday was what to place behind the bed in a client space. I decided that this north facing room really needed some reflective surfaces, so as I was floating around the pool, I came up with a solution…mirrors behind the bed. I do some of my best work when I’m lounging “seaside”. So I looked around for inspiration, and here are some of my absolute favs.
The simplicity of the moldings allows the furnishings to take center stage. The headboard has the most stunning lines don’t you think?
I love how the mirror captures the reflection of the artwork on the opposite wall, which is a consideration if you attempt this idea.
Mirrors flanking the bed give this simple design a sense of style and airiness.
A large scale mirror reflects the light back into the room, and adds depth to this bedroom.
Rather than having one large mirror behind the headboard, they opted for leaning several instead. This is my favorite look, and one that I’ll be creating for my very lucky client.
The mirror behind the headboard adds to the clean classic look of this room.
The antique mirror is just perfect for this eclectic space, and also the walls are worthy of mention, I simply love the patina and colour blocking.
