EQ3’s December Blogger of the Month is Gemma Bonham-Carter. An avid DIYer, Gemma has spent almost 4 years renovating and decorating her family’s red brick home on a budget. She launched her blog The Sweetest Digs shortly after moving into the home and has been sharing her DIY adventures ever since.
When asked to choose a favourite EQ3 accessory for the feature, Gemma was quick to select the Conner Mirror in white. She noted, last week, on the EQ3 Facebook Page why she liked it so much; and, today she’s showing us how she styled it in the master bedroom of her home.
“I have been keeping my eyes peeled for a round mirror for above our bed for a long time now, and the Conner couldn’t have been more perfect. It’s a pretty large mirror, so it’s easier to have two people on hand to do the install. I was smitten as soon as it was up. The simple round shape of the mirror plays off the straight lines of the bed and headboard perfectly. And it’s big enough to have a presence up there, rather than feeling too small, you know?
I like the way it reflects the chandelier and the art display around the TV on the opposite wall. Again, the lines on the opposite wall are very rectangular (frames + TV), so it’s nice to have the rounded shape of the mirror to add some dimension. And the symmetry that the mirror + light fixtures + pillows provides in the room is much needed with our off-balance windows. One of the features I really like about the mirror is that it is inset quite deeply within the painted wood frame. Somehow it makes it feel more luxe that way. It gives off a bit of a nautical feel, don’t you think?
Sometimes it’s just one piece that can make a room feel a whole lot more complete, you know? And although I used this in our bedroom, the scale and look of the mirror would be fab in so many different spots. I can picture it looking gorgeous in a bathroom above a vanity, in an entryway above a narrow table, above a fireplace, or on a big wall in a mixed gallery wall.” – Gemma Bonham-Carter, The Sweetest Digs
