When we moved to our new home, the fireplace was one of the areas that I wanted to “stand out”. Being so close to the entryway and next to a big window (with a direct view of the street), this area had to have a focal point that didn’t distract from the sculpted header of the mantel. I wanted a piece that could be use in any type of decoration (including the seasonal ones) and that at the same time could add visual height to this room.
Many times I thought about placing a flat tv on top of the fireplace’s mantel, but while researching on the web I found that there were more people against this trend that in favor. I thought that the idea of placing that black rectangle took a lot from this beautiful fireplace. So I kept looking until I found the perfect accent.
The piece that I ended up selecting was a +kenroyhome Reyes Wall Mirror. This elegant piece has a vintage silver color that goes perfectly with the undertones of my fireplace. Besides this fact, the rays of this abstract sun design are reminiscent of the “Mediterranean Revival” style of the sculpted header.
Now that Fall is here, I’ve decorated my mantle but with the Reyes Wall Mirror as the focal point of this vignette. I can envision this mirror for Christmas and can’t wait to decorate around it.
