Update your standard bathroom mirror. Use molding to build a frame around your old mirror for a chic way to update your bathroom decor. Strips of tile are also a great option for mirror framing, especially if you can integrate it into a backsplash.
Influenced by Colonial and Victorian architecture, the uniquely American Farmhouse home style looks just right with tall, narrow, double-hung windows, bay windows and window groupings, and 2-over-2 grille patterns. Black exterior window frames add striking contrast for curb appeal.
Another splurge in the design was custom framing for the fine art photography. Black lacquered framing was chosen to coordinate with the black accents of the room, while an inset turquoise fillet — the accent molding that fits inside a larger frame and usually sits on top of the mat — helps highlight the blue tones in the art. Since the room receives ample sunlight, non-glare acrylic was chosen rather than glass to protect the art from UV rays.
Natural light illuminates this coastal guest bedroom. Black metal frames the windows, while white bed linens cover the gray upholstered bed. Turquoise pillows and a striped rug add pops of color, while white nightstands with glass lamps are positioned on either side of the bed.
