I can't get these beautiful images - mirrors and art layered over tapestries and fabric - out of my mind.

I love layering. In fact, my friend who designed the interiors of our new church just did a very similar layering effect with the tapestry and mirror. So lovely! {there's a photo of it on my blog if you want to see...pretty stylish for a church!}

Have a great week!

I am in LOVE with the whole layering thing. We layer decorative mirrors on sheet mirrors all the time. This is even more unexpected and over the top. I had also saved the first image from John Saladino. Perfection!

I must admit I love this layering look so much I've been trying it out in my own home!

Brandi said...

This is certainly a great idea! I was thinking of doing it with a sari and a gold mirror I have. Guess they put a hole through the fabric to attach it?

I love that look...it is so romantic and unexpected. I have nowhere really to do that in my home...I think.

Oooh, I was just trying to figure out something to go behind the bed, maybe a curtain with a mirror over it? Love these! XX!

John Saladino is a master with the layers. Love the ones you chose.

So soft and etheral, makes me feel like I am a nun 500 years ago, in a stone room with stunning lead windows, and a wooden mirror over a flax curtain....oh the fantasy of interior design.
