The festive season is upon us – cue the jubilation and glee! Without sounding too cliche, it really is the most wonderful time of year. And even though the snow has disappeared in Calgary (for the time being), I’m not going to let that dampen my spirit. The decorations are out, the Pentatonix Christmas album is on repeat and I’ve baked my first batch of Christmas cookies!
I realize the actual line is ‘magic mirror on the wall ….’ but it didn’t have the same effect as the title for this post. So, mirror, mirror on the wall it is. Now that I’ve cleared that up, any guesses what today’s post is about? 😉 That’s right – mirrors! They are one of the most used tools in a designers toolbox. Mirrors can help create the illusion of more space, brighten a room, and add impact and interest for a fraction of the cost of art.
Thanksgiving has come and gone here in Canada and while most of the country nurses a turkey and pie hangover, I’m back at it with a fall inspired colour crush: terracotta and navy.
If you read my post on transitioning your space for fall, you know that I am not one to decorate with traditional colours like red, yellow and orange. Favouring instead textures and layers to create a cozy space to welcome cooler temps.
