Mirror Mirror on the shop wall, I would love to buy you but I have not that much budget at all... My top 6 ornate mirror picks for this month.
Mirrors are great and like rugs, often bigger the better. However, big mirrors can often be quite expensive. Then there is the matter of getting and styling the right mirror for a particular room or wall, which in itself can be bit of an art form.
What I recommend for those residing in Brisbane is to check our "Premium Homewares" (soon to be renamed "Grand Reflections" in the coming months I'm told).
The Web Address: www.premiumhomewares.com.au
Their motto is "Grand Styling without the Grand Pricing". They have an extensive range of ornate and contemporary big and small mirrors of various forms and functions at prices that are at least half of what you'd expect to pay in retail stores.
Here are a few mirrors that I personally think can be a focal point for almost any bedroom, entry or living room.
For that classic charming, elegant and feminine touch, I think Champagne mirrors are the way to go.
Elle 137x77cm Champagne Ornate Bevelled Edge Mirror for $250 (their Regular Price)
I also think a black mirror can look sleek, rich and sophisticated in modern or traditional decor schemes. So it's hard to look part this one.
Metricon 178x77cm Black Ornate Bevelled Edge Mirror for $380 (their regular price)
If that's too big for your space, they do stock smaller black mirrors. My pick would this one.
Versa 130x70cm Gloss Black Ornate Mirror for $160 (their regular price)
It also comes in other colours, but of them I think the black one is the most outstanding.
They also have a range of standing mirrors for getting dressed. Perfect for decorating the walk in wardrobe.
Tuscanny 160x44cm Champagne Full Length Mirror for $160 (their regular price).Finally, the classic bold gold mirror. My absolutely personally must have item when it comes to mirrors.
Their website is also easy and straight forward to use to view their range. However, the best part of their business is that they are home based, owned by Mile Miletic and his wife Nikki Miletic, so you're always dealing with the owner operators, who do their best to look after you. So once you find a mirror you like it's as simple as calling them and arranging a pick up time. They also have a 72 hour return policy for change of mind. So you can bring the mirror home, see how it sits and if it's just not the one, you can take it back.
With regards to styling your mirrors and getting the most out of them, keep watching this space. Mile tells me he'll be giving out his own personal tips on how to decorate your rooms with mirrors in a series of articles during this year.
