Keep Up With Mirror Trends!

We love having mirrors in our homes because it makes each room appear so much larger. Mirrors are our best friends in small spaces, so we always want to keep up with latest trends to know which one would look best in each room. There are 5 different mirror types: the typical square/rectangle, circle, floor, geometric, and vintage.

Square / Rectangle



This will work in any room, any time. It is typical and safe, but can still be trendy.




This mirror has a very modern feel. You can go with a bronze or gold frame to give it an elegant, sleek look, or combine the mirror with a wooden frame to keep it casual and not over-the-top modern.




Who doesn’t want a floor length mirror? Really. You will use this daily and is a huge decorative piece. It’s very easy to update by just painting and changing the frame, and this mirror will be a piece you will keep forever. You will never let this accent piece go.




This type of mirror is still pretty simple, but because of the shape, it’s also very trendy with a huge impact.




This type will be perfect in your hollywood glam styled room. This one piece has so much personality and can easily get along with many items in a room. You can lean it up against a wall or hang it up; just be careful on how heavy it is.

Try some new mirrors in each room and just watch how big of an impact it has on every room!

Day 1: Honeycomb

Now that all the candy is gone and the witches have finished their brew, it is time for November, time to say Thank You!!!

This is the month everyone sits and thinks of all they have to be thankful for. Since this is a blog about design and fashion, we thought we’d give you a daily design element we are thankful for through out the month of November.

Our first daily dose of design features a pattern derived from nature and emerging as a re-newed trend and focal design element.

Honeycomb is a mass of geometric cells built in bee nests to store honey. The motif of hexagonal shapes come together like puzzle pieces which makes it a fabulous option for repeating patterns or pulling apart into single geometric shapes.

We love how versatile this pattern is – from elaborate decorative ceiling trim to a small detail on a decorative pillow, the honeycomb pattern is the perfect mix of art and nature. As you can see in the pictures below, you can implement this geometric pattern in any type of space.

The use of the honeycomb pattern in the left picture creates a visual interest on the ceiling and draws the eye up, while the bathroom on the right shows how creating a simple, repetitive pattern on the floor can make the space feel larger. Both are great ways to add visual interest to a narrow space.

Wall coverings are another way to tie in this geometric pattern. Like this vintage gold leafed David Hicks wallpaper. Gorgeous!

This kitchen uses the honeycomb pattern on the feature wall. Paired with the metallic shimmer of the tiles, a fabulous focal wall is created.

As we all know, trends are constantly changing and evolving – the honeycomb pattern is no different. So, if you are looking to keep up, but not be tied down, then accessories are the way to go! Below are a some fun accent pieces that can take a room from drab to fab in a snap!

Above are some DIY honeycomb shelves that work great for wall art or an unconventional way to display your favorite novels. A funky vase, mirror or lamp with some geometric detailing are other simple ways to bring in the honeycomb pattern. Always keep in mind that throw pillows are a fun way to bring in a bold pattern with little commitment.

As you can see, the honeycomb pattern has given us plenty to be thankful for. Weather you are re-designing an entire room or just looking to add a “sting” of drama to existing decor, this geometric design is a great way to go.

So, as this first day of November comes to an end, we leave you with the buzz-ness.

Until tomorrow my friends, stay “buzzy”!!
