Create Magic With Mirrors!


1- Mirror a wall then place a chest or table against the same wall. It will seem to double the size of the space.

2- Use an extra large mirror in a dining room. The larger the mirror, the larger the impact.

3- Use mirrors in every room; they bring light into the space. Great for a back splash in a more modern luxurious kitchen too.

4- Mirrored furniture can also give the extra spark to a bedroom or dressing area.

5- Small baths can look great with a mirrored ceiling; it becomes a shimmering jewel box.

6- Mirrored screens can brighten a dull corner or become a fantastic backdrop to expand your space.

7- Mirrors can add character to the room and sometimes can be the only "window" in the space. Mirrors are an inexpensive way to make your space more luxurious.

8- Use a gold mirror to brighten your setting, gold is still a best seller!

9- Hang art or another accessory like a wreath in front of a mirror for impact.

10 - A grouping of mirrors and art can be the focal point in your room!

Best Sellers:

Sunburst Gold Mirror - GV990325
This modern metal mirror can also be purchased in a nickel finish too, GV990326. Large size at 39.5" diameter. Also comes in a smaller size in gold and nickel: GV990663 and GV990664.

Mirrored Bedside Open Chest - C04214

Printed Linens from Suzanne Tucker!

Our favorite linen prints from Suzanne Tucker Home!

This print on linen is a modern interpretation of a 19th century French hand painted pattern. Carita is sophisticated with intricate details on fine linen. Colorway shown here is Honey. Other colors: Cucumber (a beautiful soft green); French Blue ( a brighter blue mixed with softer blues and grays); Sepia (a modern mix of gray and soft brown).

We love this beautiful print called Kiku. This medium repeat print has been reinterpreted from a 19th century Japanese cover. The intricate pattern contains chrysanthemums and lotus roundels with interlocking arabesques all on a heavy linen. Three colorways as seen here from left to right: Aubergine, Sapphire and Jade. Beautiful!

We love fabrics with borders! Maharani is a beautiful mix of lilies and vines reinterpreted from an French textile. The wide 12" floral border makes this a very special linen fabric. Perfect for draperies, coverlets and special pillows. Gorgeous!  Colorways: Champagne (shown here); Coral (corals and greens); French Blue (blues with gray); Sage (soft greens with beige and gold).
