If you’ve been following along here on Finding Silver Linings, then you know about the Restoration Hardware mirror scandal. After sulking around and whining to my mother, cousins, and husband, I pulled myself together and made a new moodboard to inspire me. This one has a little more swank and a lot more sparkle 😉 Here’s what I came up with:
1. Rich Cream by Benjamin Moore is the color of that room. This will provide a bright, warm, neutral background .
2. The Pierre Mirror from Zgallerie.com is exactly what I’m looking for. A large, round, statement piece for the wall. The geometric pattern is bold and a bit masculine, not frilly. The graphic shape has just enough detail without overwhelming the simplicity. Plus, it looks like jewelry for the wall 😉
3. The Montgomery Console from Pier1 Imports. We have this piece already, and just moved him to a different location since Simon’s arrival.
4. Apothecary jars add shine but since they are clear, they don’t hold any weight visually. Plus, I can fill them whenever I want a small change. They will find their home on the tray (#5)
5. A fuchsia serving tray would add a playful pop of color. I love fuchsia mixed with metallics for a luxe vibe. The tray can sit on the lower section of the console.
6. A textured silver vase loaded with pink & purple blossoms keep things feminine, but not over-the-top. This should sit on top of the trunks (#7)
7. The stack of trunks add a touch of vintage globe-trotting cool to this space. It keeps everything from feeling too uptight & posh.
8. 2 Textured silver lamps will sit on top of the console to keep the look balanced and add some much-needed light to the area (there are no ceiling lights in this room).
9. A stack of deep brown & a couple of fuchsia hardcover books keep things looking smart & lived in with a touch of pretty color to tie it all together.
