Mirror, mirror on the wall…which one is the coolest of them all?

You don’t need a fortune to decorate with style. All you need is a good nose for vintage finds and a little patience. I’m almost done painting my hallway (I ended up using a Histor color called Majeur by the way) and so now is the time to start decorating. I already got this WAY over the top fake porcelain lamp for 20 euro’s and a nice carpet for only 25 euro’s. Pretty good score, right? I’ve been looking for a mirror and since I don’t want to spend too much money, I decided to take the vintage route and look for something on Dutch second-hand shopping site Marktplaats.nl. Mirror, mirror on the wall…

Whenever I start browsing a site like Marktplaats, I go in with an open mind. I save everything I like to my favorites and then after an hour or so I look back amazed at how price doesn’t mean a thing. I can be just as happy with a 9 euro Pink Panther mirror as with a 125 euro antique mirror from Kent – so guess which one I ended up buying.

PS: A useful decorating tip I picked up during the workshop I did with Abigail Ahern earlier this year – make sure that you hang something interesting like a painting or a poster opposite the mirror, like this. Now that I think of it, that tip isn’t going to work with the Pink Panther mirror I got. Guess I have to get another one now…

The baroque mirror from Kent – it’s only 20x30cm, so a lot smaller than you’d think.

Art deco salamander spiegel

The seller of this mirror describes it as art déco…it is though? In any case, it’s a steal at only 10 euro’s.
