trend to try: oversized gilded mirrors

I never thought that gilded or gold would be something I gravitate to, but I am officially smitten. I'm seeing oversized gilded mirrors everywhere, and not only do they add an amazing glamorous element to a space, they also tick off the sustainability factor because they are vintage. And they make small living much bigger by adding reflection and a stunning focal point to draw the eye to.

I'm declaring this a trend to invest in, because large gilded mirrors will always be classic.

Etsy has a pretty great selection of vintage gilded mirrors. Check them out, and keep your eyes open at antiques stores and vintage dealers.

  1. Loving this too!! I just bought a huge mirror and I can't wait to put it to good use. For the loft project I just finished, we also have a large mirror right by the foyer for a dramatic statement. Loving it!


I'd love to hear from you. Thanks for making my day!
