It is funny how inspiration works in twisty little ways instead of always in a direct line. I have been in love with this room from John Saladino’s interpretation of a NY apartment based on the movie Girl with a Pearl Earring. For a peek, go here.
Ever since I first saw the Astrid Mirror from Oly mirror that Christina from Greige used on her design for my dining room (see here), I have become enamored by it and have vowed to have at least one sunburst mirror in my house. I must be the last person on Earth to get one!
So there is this little corner of my house with an empty spot right above the two turtle prints. There was a little convex ornament that I had planned would go there. As luck would have it, as I was about to hang it the little rascal jumped out of my hands and laid in halves on the tile floor below. Needless to say, this little corner has been ‘hanging’ since last Fall.
As luck would have it, today I found this little convex mirror on Etsy that should fit in very nicely. And y’all, it cost me all of $10 bucks plus shipping. I think it will look like a million bucks! I might even rub some black stain on it. Will see after it gets here.
AFTER - artistic interpretation
Do you guys find that inspiration is not as straight forward as some people would think, but rather an extension of what is going on in your life? It is a hodgepodge of ideas that seem to just fall into place, fit and mold to your current need.
