Décor Inspiration | Perfect Pairings: Venetian Mirrors & Pastel

SOME THINGS ARE JUST MEANT to be together: modern and traditional, florals and leopard print, pralines and cream, and now, Venetian mirrors and pastels. The history of the Venetian glass mirror dates back to the early 16th century, when mirrors were created with the sole function of assisting with illumination to brighten rooms. True Venetian glass mirrors are made in Venice, Italy, primarily on the island of Murano. While not all of the mirrors included here may be true Venetian glass (they may be direct reproductions or created in the style of such) they work well in any room in the home, and exceptionally so in the powder room, where they add endless glamour, especially when paired with marble and soft pastels . . .

    The first photo is actually from Domino, a long time ago. Your blog would be even more beautiful with appropriate credit to the photographers, editors, and stylists who work so hard to create the images you display.

    • Actually, what you are saying is completely incorrect — at the end of the article (image sources & credits are often given at the end of articles), you will find a link that provides all appropriate and correct links & sources for that top image. xTIG

  • I love mirrors. I have them all over the house, old ones, new ones, small and one massive. And I will buy more if I see one I like :)
    Nothing to do with vanity, they bring light into the rooms, they don’t “fight” with whatever art is on the walls or colors .. I love mirrors.
    My favorite for a long time was a mirror bought in an antique store that had a mother and daughter painting in the top. My husband said that was my daughter and I. And we bought one that is about 4 feet by 5 feet , gilt very ornate frame and beveled glass.
    That mirror lived in the US with us and then to Argentina and now back in the US .. it leans on the wall in my bedroom .
