My boyfriend and I have roughly the same style, which is good, but living together in a small apartment has forced me to abandon my girlier tastes. No florals, very little pink, nothing too Baroque. I’m okay with it for the most part, until I see something like this flower-lined mirror from Marie Claire Maison and I wanna go all femme-y with decor again.
The blooms that line the mirror are actually made from egg cartons that have been cut, layered, painted and gilded. I love the soft color and the texture they add. They really look like they’re meant to be a part of the mirror, no? Now that I know it’s super-easy and cheap to add a romantic touch like this, I’m ready to bust out my scissors. But first, I’ll be making some scrambled eggs for my boyfriend. (Win-win, right?)
