Weekend Design Inspiration
Here at lili&gen we not only provide custom furniture and unique accessories, but we also offer decor services. I thought I’d write a post to show you one of our personal designs since it’s been a while.
I had originally placed three small mirrors on the wall of this dining room but ended up switching them for this neat row of framed prints. The mirrors looked too puny on the wall which is rather large and so I kept thinking the wall looked too empty. The centre print is a feather illustration and we still have one available at lili&gen :)
On the opposite wall, I wanted a statement piece so I hung a large horizontal mirror with a thick white frame (purchased at Ikea) to provide lots of contrast against the dark grey/purple wall (“ebony slate” by Benjamin Moore). This apartment is located in Montreal’s Plateau neighborhood and so it contains all original moulding (that white armoire for example, is original to the building) which is gorgeous but makes painting difficult due to all the rough, uneven edges. Personally though, I’d take character over perfection any day.
On the shelf, I placed vintage glass milk bottles and paired them with lime candles. The light fixture and photograph that can be seen in the mirror are also from Ikea. God bless Ikea accessories.
