Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn! With the sun luckily still peeking behind the clouds some days, I also found myself turning on the stove during the first chilly evenings, a sign autumn really arrived. I personally love this time of the year to create new corners, add a bit of colour I normally don’t use, buy branches and take out the extra blankets like most of us. I have to confess that every year I am also tempted to paint the bedroom in a dark autumn colour and with the new dark wooden floor I even might really try to do something new.
Something else I have been completely fascinated by is the idea of adding mirrors to my home. I think the combination of candlelight and mirrors is a golden match, it has something magical to see candlelight reflected in a mirror. I do have an old French mirror myself, high on my wish though are a few darker bronzed and weathered mirrors or a combination with brass, a material that returns in various places in my house.
Weathered glass has a beautiful industrial look because it has undergone an ageing process. As a result, the glass is no longer completely clear, which gives the mirror the tough and weathered look I love. At imm Belgian Ethnicraft always has a beautiful presentation of their design label, most designs are made of solid wood and include not only furniture but also textiles and decorative objects. It was at the fair I first noticed their collection of beautiful clear and bronze aged mirrors. I selected a few to give you an impression and maybe use in your own home to add a beautiful industrial touch with lots of character for autumn and beyond.

Anderssen & Voll designed this series of mirrors for Muuto in different versions and sizes and a combination of powder coated material and coloured glass suitable for all rooms. The mirrors can be mounted both horizontally and vertically, or stand alone as a beautiful object, together they can be used to add an artistic design on the wall.
