Color- The color of the mirror frame says everything about décor. Many people prefer classic color frames over other frames as they can get subsumed into any décor. Gold color frames are eye-catching. Their presence can bring grandeur to the room. People who are fond of unique things should look for contrasting combinations. Light colored walls should be filled with mirrors covered with bright mirrors and vice versa. Rustic color frames can bring peculiarity in modern décor.
The Ladies Storage Mirror is so called because it is fitted with two drawers across the base. The mirror is self-standing and can be use on any flat surface such as a dresser or sideboard. It is 37 inches wide x 31 high with a depth of 9 inches to accommodate the drawers.
The Origin of the Sunburst Mirror- The sunburst mirror has a fascinating history that dates right back to the 17th Century. During the 17th Century the Catholic Church began to use monstrances above the alter these elaborate designs were made up of decorative stands surrounded by glided rays of sunshine demonstrating what we know today as the sunburst style. These monstrances were often found in churches in Italy featured above the altar. The very first mirrors were very small and convex and it wasn’t until the late 17th Century that mirror production became more established and mirrors eventually increased in size.
Mirrored Tile Mantelpiece - For the ultimate in sparkle you can tile your entire mantelpiece in mirrored tiles. Or a for somewhat subtler approach just cover the top of the mantel in the tiles. If you are covering the entire mantelpiece you will need such tiles plus adhesive. Measure the tiles and cut where needed with a glass cutter breaking the tiles carefully along the scored line. If you plan to only add mirrored tiles to the top of the mantel you could simply arrange several of them strategically to add sparkle without the need to use the adhesive. Either way your mantel will simply shine.
Mirrored Candle Arrangements - Candles and mirrors just naturally go well together. To create extra sparkle on your mantelpiece lay an unframed mirror or a piece of mirrored tile directly on the mantel surface. Then hang or prop a small mirror behind it. Set one or more candles on the mirror creating an interesting arrangement. Using candles of different heights will add to the visual appeal. Then when the candles are lit the mirrors under and behind the candles will create extra shine and sparkle.
