Trendspotting: Thin Frame Round Mirrors

By Kate Riley March 28, 2017

The thin frame round mirror is the wall accent of the moment. It’s popping up everywhere in interiors, I even used one in a recent bathroom remodel and plan to do it again in the master bathroom. They work everywhere, not just in bathrooms but in bedrooms or community spaces too.

The best thing about a round mirror is that it adds a curved shape to spaces with angular lines, think furniture and walls, all those right angles deserve a rounder partner don’t they?  The thin frame has contemporary appeal and looks fab in a bronze finish and warm gold tones too.











If you’d like to add a curvaceous thin framed mirror to your home, here are a few I found around the web!

Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley March 25, 2017

I spent yesterday planning out my summer, booking a few camps for the kids and making reservations for a few short trips I’m taking. This week I took my 11 year old son to see Alton Brown’s Eat Your Science show in San Francisco, it was hilarious and I highly recommend it if you’re a fan! We thoroughly enjoyed it and Alton just announced many more dates across the country.

This weekend I’m moving all the furniture out of the master bedroom since the flooring guys are coming on Wednesday to install new hardwood floors upstairs (yay!) to replace the old carpet. I’ve been waiting to do this for years, and at last it’s happening! I can’t wait until they’re done since I’ll be giving my master bedroom decor an update too. I’ll share the final results here of course!
