Everything doesn’t have to be a grand pronouncement, a sweeping gesture, a reinvention of the wheel. Indeed most things shouldn’t be. For this diminutive guest bedroom, the client wanted to outfit it simply and inexpensively. And so what had originally been a walk-in closet became a cozy spot for weekend visitors. The walls and an old side table were painted bright white, the floor was freshened up and a built-in bed was added by the window and dressed in simple white cottons. But to me, what brought the room to life was the ornate gilded mirror frame that I hung to one side of the bed. It’s an unexpected bit of glam in a nook. Being framed in this instance was also Rustic Chic!
