Mirror, Mirror On The Wall…

…Who is the most stylish of them all?

Well, I don’t mean to brag, but Red Knot is definitely full of modern style that people of all ages can appreciate. In my opinion, one of the best ways to incorporate style and glam into any home is through the use of mirrors. They not only open up a room and give the illusion of more space, but it also has a glam factor no one can deny. Trust me, there are a lot of ways you can add mirrors into the mix.

There’s the classic floor length mirror which you can lean up against a wall to keep it more casual, or have it flush against a wall to create a clean look. An interesting placement would be to use a floor length mirror in a dining room setting. Not only can it elongate a small dining room, especially when placed at the end of the table, but it can also bring an interesting design element that most people won’t expect.

Though it goes against the rules of Feng Shui, mirrors are a popular design element in the bedroom. Depending on the type of mirror you have, it can be used to give the illusion of more space and be functional when getting ready in the morning! Fill up that empty space above your headboard with a mirror! It can be as simple or as elegant as you want it. Sunburst mirrors are a great option for this space, as well as above any simple piece of furniture you wish to spruce up. Mirrors also work great behind lamps on your bedside table to bring even more light into the room.

Don’t want a big mirror? Take a bunch of smaller mirrors and place them together on a wall for a gallery style look. Functionality and art make for a creative and interesting space.

For those who want to go even further, mirrored furniture accessories are an absolute must for me in any living space. Whether it’s a vanity, console table, or even night stand, you can open up any space with these mirrored pieces.

All That Glitters Is…

…gold… and silver. They shine, they sparkle, and yes, they’re luxurious!  In home design metallics are no longer just festive accents during the holidays. Modern and chic, whether in the spring or summer, gold and silver brings a dash of style and regality like no other colors.

How do you incorporate this glitzy trend in your home?  Read below for some tips.

METALLIC 101

They might be flashy, but they can also be considered neutrals because they work with any color palette. Although, keep in mind metallic tones are reflective in nature. So it’s important to allow them to be the star of their own show, and make them pop. Gold and silver can make any space gleam worthy, you have to literally, make them shine.  As accessories, the most dramatic impact is done in small doses. Otherwise, it will be overwhelming.  If you decide to go bigger, as in metallic furniture, then by all means go BIG! Then keep everything else neutral. Lastly, you can mix and match gold and silver. It adds texture and creates a history- a not so monotonous “I actually live here” look.  Like everything else, it’s all about balance.

GO FOR THE GOLD

Black and gold = sexy and lustrous. For fashionistas, think the LBD with a gold statement necklace. Rich gold also works well on rustic brick walls as it create a contrast of whimsy. Achieve this look by placing a gold starburst mirror against urban brick walls. For a sunny and more inviting atmosphere, play up yellow with gold.  For a feminine touch, go for light gold and glass, such as our Rachel Occasional Table Collection here at Red Knot.

Silver works great with floral patterns as it softens the palette. Decorate with white tabletop accessories to enhance the silver. Cool shades of blue or white with silver and chrome accents creates a sleek and polished look, however you can warm up the atmosphere by adding warm tones of gold.
