Weekend Reflections #15



James is the host of Weekend Reflections


A photo of my first floor bathroom. It's very small but has a high ceiling. So I decorated with a border where the wall meets the ceiling. I cut out a few leaves from the border and pasted them as if they were falling into the light receptacle. I thought it would act as a trompe l'oeil and lead the eye down into the middle of the room.

I thought the reflection in the mirror of the border and the window in the room was interesting.

Very nice Mary. It actually looks like your trompe l'oeil is part of the mirror's design.

Carol said...

Nice reflection shot. I love your decorating idea...cutting the leaves....I follow some decorating blogs and this is a little tip I might find there...

Hi Mary. I think the falling leaves are great. You aren't kidding about the high ceiling -- unusual for a bathroom. Glad you dropped by. Have a Happy New Year's day and a wonderful new year.

It's almost as though the leaves have floated into the mirror. Lovely.

The effect is so beautiful, Mary, so I hesitate to be prosaic, but I do hope this bathroom does not develop mould as the hot air rises!

May I wish you health and happiness as we journey into twenty ten.

That is a lovely mirror and reflection. Cutting out the leaves so enhances the beauty of this room.
