Happy Friday guys! I’m blogging in today with a sweet little French inspired vintage mirror. I’m not entirely sure of it’s history, but to me it looks a little French/Paris apartment like. Of course a super chic mirror must feel right at home in this shabby filled cottage with a lady who spends her mornings blogging in pajamas. That’s chic, right? It’s certainly a mixed bag around here. While cottage and everything cottage will always be my first and number one love, a couple of other design styles have caught my eye lately.
I know farmhouse is huge right now—and all things rustic—which I totally dig! I have always loved cottage style and shabby chic with the weathered woods and soft color palette, but there are two other styles that have been whispering sweet nothings to me at night. I’ve been ignoring them… this is a cottage style blog after all and I have a cottage style cottage!
But dear decorators and DIYers of the world wide web, I’m finding myself drawn more and more to Frenchie type things and I’m finding this little cottage doesn’t seem to mind me mixing in a little French inspiration here and there. It’s such a sophisticated timeless look. And then there’s Bohemian, or I think they call it Boho. I love this look! The vibrant colors and beautiful textures are calling my name. So I might try to sneak in just a breath of both of these looks. Unless it starts to look like a crazy person lives here, oh yes, the multiple personalities of Cottage Fix. It’s just me, Sally, and I can’t seem to decide. I’ve always had a hard time making my mind up and sticking to it. It’s no wonder I can’t settle on just one look.
As for the little Frenchie mirror, it’s adding some ever so needed shine and sparkly reflection to the corner of our cottage dining room. This wall has been completely empty for a while, since I painted the kitchen and moved in the mirror that was here. It was nice to get out and go shopping for something other than bathroom remodel supplies. I was actually planning on trying to find something with a bit of color, but this is what I came home with.
Miss Piggy is really into it. If only that sweet little dog on the other side of the mirror would come on out and play.
I’d love to hear if there are any design styles that have been pulling at your heart strings these days. If you would’ve asked me a couple of weeks ago, I probably would’ve said Scandinavian, I saw some lovely Scandinavian style Christmas photos on Pinterest over the holidays. I don’t think I even knew what Boho style was two weeks ago. It’s funny how our tastes change.
Here’s the mirror in the evening reflecting our dining room and sun porch as we’re getting ready to have supper. Hold your horses family, I need to take a quick picture for my blog post. Grin!
