The trend for mirrored and upholstered furniture is set to be a big hit this year with the release of the latest Snow White remake, Mirror Mirror, now showing in cinemas featuring Julia Roberts. The visuals of this film could be its biggest highlight, with the set, designed by Alex Touikan (set designer for The Day After Tomorrow, The Aviator and 300) featuring imaginative landscapes and opulent interiors.
Taking a much lighter tone than previous Snow White films, the Queen’s palace is a dreamy, shell like abode. Peach, lilac and gold are the main colours throughout, with decadent features like a French style upholstered chaise longue or lavish headboards setting the tone of luxury. Delicate details like tall candelabras or dainty mirrored tables complete the royal castle look.
The reflective surfaces of mirrored furniture offers an extra dimension of light and space in your home, combine with metallic frames or surfaces for a bright and striking make over. Be the fairest of them all with these pretty desk items (feather and ink, photo frame, letter opener, apple bowl).
