Two tall mirrors frame the Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams bed in this restful bedroom, resulting in a symmetrical arrangement that adds harmony while reflecting light.

Don’t shy away from consignment and resale stores.

The back wall features handsome antique mirrors to serve as the backdrop to the Macaron by Patisse signage embellished with brass-trimmed shelves designed for additional storage and showcasing macaron towers.
When transforming a spare bedroom into a glamorous dressing room, designer Nicole Norris, ASID, NCIDQ, turned the double-door reach-in closet into a custom-designed shoe display alcove with 1/2" thick glass shelves. Luxurious patterned carpeting, gold shimmering wallpaper and neutral furnishings balance out the bright pink shelving. Details such as a gilded tri-fold mirror and a creamy hair-on-hide chair add a touch of glamour to the space. Since the room was so large, several ready-made furniture pieces were added in addition to the custom shelving.
