still swooning over peacock mirrors

I have been swooning over peacock mirrors ever since I laid eyes on them - I don't remember exactly when. These mirrors were first discovered in Indian Palaces, known as "the bird with a hundred eyes" because of the resemblance to peacock tails. Studded with row after row of many dazzling small mirrors, they are still desired by many designers. These mirrors add magical sparkle and texture to a wall providing eclectic feel and character to any decor. The ones with carved wood are pricey for sure. Lately I have been seeing some online stores selling replicas made from resin and wood mix for an affordable price. I finally got my hands on one of these beauties at Pier1. They had an online only sale with store pick up option, very convenient. I actually called the store nearby and asked them if I could purchase it there for the online sale price and they made it available for me right away.

Loving the combination of my new mirror with this patternful vignette.

The tiny mirrors flirting with the light give an extra ambience in the night.

Peacock mirrors definitely add pizzazz to any style and room. Here are some homes with inspiring styles on Pinterest;

    1. So happy you like it, thanks Ivan! Have a marvelous weekend!!

  2. I kick myself for not buying a HUGE one I saw at HomeGoods. For once, my HomeGoods had something good & global! :) But it had no price tag. It must have fallen off. I assumed it would be outside my range. It was huge and heavy and gorgeous.

    1. Oh bummer, sounds so familiar, I had a few of those days! Last weekend I was traveling and found a HomeGoods on the way and there it was, a huge square wood carved one!! And it was on clearance but the price was $350. Another time I saw a large oval shaped one for $250. Someone on Instagram bought one like mine for $70. So let's keep our fingers crossed in hopes that you find yours. Seems like they are around. Thank you for dropping by, have a fabulous day!xx

  3. haha.
    I styled that Wisteria shot. And I still hate myself for not buying that mirror when I worked for them. :)

    1. Oh my, I should have known! I know now that your styling was a major contributor to my obsession:) I was on cloud 9 when I found mine - even though it was a reproduction. I am thrilled that you dropped by! Thanks!!xx
