The return of the sun mirror in decoration

With the return of ethnic and bohemian styles, brass and natural materials, sunshine mirrors are all the rage at the moment! And that’s just as well. Indeed, mirrors are still the best way tobring light into our interiors and these typically vintage decorative elements are generally quite affordable. Made of rattan, brass or other golden materials, these mirrors can be shaped like suns, stars or flowers. This is a trend that originally dates back to the 1950s. For a trendy decoration, be sure to combine them: in an immaculate white interior, with a Berber carpet, trendy colours such as yellow, water green or duck green, patterns or more sober furniture to mix styles.
