Gold Leaf Mirror
July 16, 2009 by Nikol
Incase you were wondering who my first style icon was…..it is my Italian grandmother ;) I think most of us get our taste from our family and the houses we saw growing up. Her house is a 1970s custom Eickler style ranch in Wisconsin. All the furniture was purchased in one shopping spree from Chicago’s Furniture Mart. Over the year, nothing has been replaced, but a few things have been re-upholstered or re-finished. It blows my mind that the place can still look so good after over 30 years!
This picture is of my Grandmothers livingroom. I was going to post a walking tour but I decided I will use the pictures to inspire a little shopping instead.
I love her gold leafed mirror hung over the faux bamboo hutch….right next to the Moroccan copper lamp. Eclectic much?
Horchow is having a huge sale and you can get this similar crown mirror for $291.
