Mirror mirror on MY wall

A few weeks ago I asked for your opinions on a mirror for our dining room/living room.

Thanks so much for all of your input! I love having such an awesome sounding board of bloggy friends.

I'm happy to report that I purchased a mirror.

Many of you liked the brown round mirror from West Elm and many of you liked the white mirror for Z Gallerie. So I took a hybrid-approach and bought this round mirror from West Elm in White!

I love how it looks on our blue wall!


And it goes great with our new painting - complementing the white boats. It almost looks like a porthole.


I can't believe our living room/dining room is almost done! It's taken so long. It took me over a year to decorate an 1,100 sq foot condo -- I can't even imagine how people manage to decorate 3,000 sq foot homes.

We still need some couch pillows. I wish I could improve my sewing skills and make some couch pillows because everything I find in stores is ugly or too busy or doesn't match or is super expensive.

Looks great! You should try etsy for pillows, I posted some of my favorites on my blog! You can find some inexpensive options and a lot of the sellers will custom make them for you!

It looks so good!! IT does look like a porthole! Fun!
And, I think you have done a great job decorating. We bought our house in May, AND we are FINALLY painting the first room (living room) this weekend! IT took me THAT long to find the right paint color! Never mind anything else!

Lovely! Fabulous mirror. I've found that throw pillows can transform a room and are worth saving up for. I always wish I was somewhat crafty so I could sew too!

Ohhh so pretty! I wish I could paint my apartment, but my building won't let me :(

Snaves said...

I can help make pillows! Maybe you can come down one weekend and we can have craft day?

Your house is absolutely gorgeous. I love it!
I wish I knew how to sew also. Its amazing what a few new throw pillows can do to a room. So much fun!

I love the colors, and how cool is that, that you have a porthole in your house? Ha ha.

I like the mirror but it is way too small for that space. I would return it and buy something much larger. The scale of the print above your sofa is perfect and makes the mirror look even smaller. Sorry, just being honest.
