Reflections

"The world is a great mirror. It reflects back to you what you are." - Thomas Dreier

 

Keeping my boutique fresh and exciting is something that is constantly in the back of my mind. Inspiration comes to me at the oddest times, whether it be driving to the office, shopping with a client, brushing my teeth, eating at a restaurant or relaxing on a hammock in the breeze. A recent idea for the shop has been to create a beautiful small room filled with the most stunning mirrors from top to bottom.

 

 

 

 

 

2015 was quite a year for us. Moving out of our home of 20 plus years, renovating the carriage house, planning my granddaughter's wedding and welcoming a new baby in the family have all caused me to reflect the complicated journey of my life. Reflection is important to help remember where you came from, where you have been, who you have met and what you have accomplished. We reflect to remember who we are and learn so that we can better ourselves.

To me, a framed mirror furnishes a room, reveals the design attitude, speaks of age or modernity, even the clarity or size of its glass. It mirrors an opposite wall or object, incorporating things into its own background wall. It magnifies light and glimmer to brighten the entire space and catches glimpses of the action creating a sort of narrative within its edges. Most importantly - for us, it reveals our inner self by catching sight of us in focused concentration or flashing glimpes. 

 

Mirrors are much more than just practical - they are mysterious with many layers.

My 'reflection room' is both a figurative and tangible area. It is a literal and metaphorical idea of how mirrors show us who we are, who we were, and who we want to be.
