I’m organizing each shelf, drawer, and looking closely at the walls in every room – it’s time to reevaluate my home style between summer travels. Mr. Wonderful calls this behavior “nesting” and creating a home is what I love to do since I was a little girl. I’d push furniture around and rearrange my room every other week (I always somehow convinced my little brother to help me). I’d make my own wallpaper in my teen room with hand drawn signs by friends and tape them all over the wall along with magazine advertisements and make my own room border!
It’s kinda like what shop owners do, they move around product on shelves so every time you visit it feels different and fresh! I gravitate toward cottage and coastal home style (everything Serena & Lily, really) – for me that’s just my kind of way to relax. This mirror Serena & Lily sent is wrapped in natural rattan and fits our home decor perfectly! When it comes to selecting pieces for our space I make sure the object can be moved within other parts of the house.
This mirror would look gorgeous in a bathroom (comes in a smaller size), entryway, over a mantel, dresser – one of the things I’m most excited about is that I can move it in another room – haha. In fact, I made Benjamin carry it all around our house, turn it both ways and thought – yes it looks good here, and here and there too!
He’s like, “You didn’t think about this before you got it where it was going to go?” I said, “No, I just knew it would work anywhere and I had to have it.” Now you know what it’s like being married to me.
Then of course I narrowed it down, sent a quick text of the 3 spots to my girlfriend Kate (who seriously needs to blog and her fashion and home style is impeccable). You know those friends who you go with whatever they say? That’s Kate to me. We had a good chuckle over Benjamin’s face in some of the photos, oh husbands! The things they put up with us crazy decorators!
Anyway, I think the office was the winner, especially with the DIY IKEA rope bookshelf I made a few years ago (below). I am dreaming of our home expansion and furnishing it all with Serena & Lily! Oh and the tassel curtains are from Serena & Lily as well, incase you thought the name rang a bell!
Thank you Serena & Lily for providing this mirror for me to review.
