Horchow sale, and I caved...

So, every morning I go through my emails and click/delete for 10 minutes...but out of the corner of my eye today I saw one that said: "Entire Horchow site 20% off for 1 day only..."


And I caved, I caved like they were waving a chocolate cupcake in front of my face at a Weight Watchers meeting...and I bought the Porcupine Mirror I've been lusting after. I never really wanted to spend full price on it, and so that was that, and it should be at my house in a few weeks...


I'm going to put it above my fireplace, once I put the new paint color on the walls...and hopefully it's everything I've ever wanted and more!! Check out the sale though, before it ends...


(Elle Decor/Jan/Feb '06)

I'm just getting the one, but a pair could work nicely too! In the home of John Dransfield and Geoffrey Ross (of Dansfield and Ross) they paired the two above like a work of art to balance nicely in the room...

It certainly looks cooler than it sounds! Hope you love it when it arrives.

This mirror is something else! I actually can admire it & if I saw it in someone's house would be drawn to it immediately...just not in my own. I can just see my husband turning the corner & accidentally running into it...not pretty!

Oh, this mirror is divine! I'm jealous. Love, love, LOVE the design and the black/white color...my bedroom is black, white and yellow! Enjoy your mirror; it's fab!

I read your blog and was dying to know how did the mirror turn out? I am interested in it also but I cannot tell if it's black or a dark brown wood from the picture. Thanks:-D
