Gallery Direct is my favorite place to shop for art. With the new house coming along, I am still looking for a few more pieces to fill in some wall space around the house. I love to browse the Gallery Direct website, because you can find such a great variety of both prints and fine art. From abstract to landscapes, you can find just about anything you’re looking for. Artwork adds a special touch to a room, a special splash of color or touch of decor. You can read one of our previous Gallery Direct posts HERE, and find out how we’ve decorated with art from Gallery Direct.
Recently, I’ve been trying to fill some wall space in the girls’ room. They’ve been asking for a mirror in their room so they can do girl stuff like check their hair twenty tikes before we head out the door. I know… isn’t it amazing that they are that old already?! Anyway, I really wanted to put something in their room to add some art to their decor, something that would really add to their room’s look. At Gallery Direct, I found THE PERFECT compromise! When you order a piece of art from Gallery Direct, you can choose to have it printed on a variety of surfaces including a mirror. So, I browsed their artwork and stock images and found this stock image that had just the right amount of pizzazz, was age-appropriate, matched the purple theme in their room, and had enough free space to allow them to still use the mirror as just that… a mirror, yet it could still double as a piece of art. Truly convenient!
I was able to pick from a couple sizes, and choose from a variety of framing options as well. I also opted for no text on the image. Once the mirror arrived, we were totally thrilled and it looked even better than we imagined, matching perfectly with their lavender walls. Kylie thought it was pretty cool that when you get close to the mirror the image almost looks 3D.
The girls are so happy, and I’m excited that we didn’t have to settle for a plain old mirror! The beautiful frame and high quality mirror are the focal point of that side of the room now. Mirrored artwork is a great option for a tween/teen girls’ room – definitely a great gift idea for the holidays!
