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.
