mirror image…

barely 24 hours ago i was boring the grey hairs off my mum’s head with my grandiose plans for the flat which included, for no particular reason other than i love it, the notion of a bar…

but not just any bar: a repurposed shop counter with glass votives, vintage crystal decanters, flowers &, the crowning glory, a giant ‘peacock’ mirror {which i have long since coveted} hanging smack-bang directly above it…

i’ve reworked my hastily thrown together moodboard ever so slightly in order to give you a sense of my vision…

 

 

fast forward to this evening when i finally had chance to peruse rue magazines‘s latest edition…

there featured across a seven page spread are the magazine’s new san francisco headquarters: an airy & fresh space featuring touches of zebra, leather &…

wait for it…

a table-top bar resplendent with… you guessed it, a glorious, jaw-droppingly beautiful ‘peacock’ mirror…

well i never! how rude!!!

but i have determined that instead of changing my plans or feeling pipped to the post, i shall instead rejoice in the knowledge that the extraordinarily talented team behind one of my favourite online mags share my vision for the perfect bijou bar…

  1. Great minds really do think alike, don’t they? And yes, it is dashed irritating when you realise that someone else may/may not have got your idea first but I’m sure you’ll execute yours in your usual inimitable and elegant style! 😀

    • you know what they say… no such thing as a new idea! the timing is what spun me out… seriously! though i had this combination on the boil in my head for a few months (since i first saw the cabinet), i only pulled the board together this week to show my mum… and then… KAPOW!!!

    • never associated this mirror with adler… did he use it or reproduce one? i think they originate in india and i saw the most exquisite set for auction a few months back (way too big for my purposes though)… some of the ones i see really don’t appeal (like you, i don’t know why), but when i find the right one (usually the ridiculously expensive variety) i think i’ll find it hard to resist! i would snap the wisteria variety up in a nano… have loved it a long, long time!

i'd love to hear your thoughts...
