Well I was just talking about my interest in interior design in my last post. Lately I’ve been talking about our renovation projects on my Home and Gardening blog more than on this site.
I’m just dreaming of getting our living room reno finished. We are in the middle of a big job. We have to finish or well … start putting up tin ceiling tiles. I purchased almost 100 of them 2 x 2 feet square three years ago. I had to paint them myself and I’ve actually antiqued them to make them fit with the style of our 1927 house.
Once the ceiling is done wide baseboards and lovely wide molding will be applied to the walls, and other than a little bit of redecorating our living room dining room reno will be finished.
In anticipation of finishing our renovation I’ve been looking at a number of home décor sites. At this point we don’t have anything on our walls. I have some very nice paintings that I’d like to put up and that will help, but it needs more.
The living room portion of the room is on the north side of the house it’s very dark. So I’ve been thinking that putting a nice mirror, perhaps like this art deco style mirror somewhere in the living room where it will catch some of the light from the south side of the house. The mirror is a piece of art in itself and will add beauty to the room, but if it can lighten or brighten the room as well it will add function.
What do you think? Isn’t that just a lovely mirror?
