DECORATING DETAIL: FEDERAL STYLE MIRRORS

One of the things you do while studying interior design is learn about the many different design styles that have evolved throughout the decades. Through my studies many moons ago I developed a great deal of respect for a variety of different decorating styles. My own style has evolved over the years but I’ve learned that I am a traditionalist by nature and always gravitate toward traditional details when it comes to decor. Since those early days in design school I created a mental list of decorating accessories that I have always wanted to  purchase and call my own. I am happy to report that I can cross one item off my “want” list: a Federal style mirror. If you read yesterday’s post then you already know that I recently purchased one while on vacation. What a great souvenir!

Let’s take a look a closer look at the Federal style mirror and see how it has been incorporated into a variety of spaces.

Another decorating detail that I am particularly fond of is how mirrors (or artwork) is hung on a bookshelf, as seen in the pictures above and below. federal style convex eagle mirror by reviving charmfederal style convex mirror reviving charmfederal style mirror 3 via reviving charmfederal style mirror 1 via reviving charmfederal style convex eagle mirror by reviving charmfederal style mirror 4 via reviving charm

    You are a woman of my own heart, as I just love Federal Style Mirrors and like you, have always dreamed of owning one. I also know what you mean about finding your inner, true style. My tastes have also evolved over the years but when I finally built my own home I had to really define what I truly love and stick with it.

    I do love your new mirror. I think they are such a welcome addition to any room. I’m a traditionalist as well, with a few twists but it’s fun to finally understand what I will love living with for a long time! 🙂
    There are some pretty examples of Federal Style Mirrors in your post. I may have to shop for one. 🙂
    xo,
