Golden mirrors always have an impactful presence on any interior space. Gold is not usually a subtle option for interior design, and those opting for gilded interiors are looking to make a statement! Gold framed mirrors can pair with a huge selection of designs and styles, but some are simply perfect for them. Here are a few examples of furniture styles that create the perfect space for a golden mirror.
Art Nouveau is defined by its use of soft tones, curvy shapes, and, you guessed it, gold! Alongside pastel colours like pinks and blues, gold accents are found across virtually all Art Nouveau designs! This design also usually opts for lighter woods, so either a full gold-framed mirror, or a light wood framed mirror with golden accents, would work perfectly! Art Nouveau is the best home for any golden mirrors, bonus points if they feature curvy designs with plenty of loops and scrolls.
Rococo is a style incredibly similar to Art Nouveau, being one of the primary inspirations of the design! Rococo design was experiencing a revival some decades after its initial era, which would heavily influence the emerging Art Nouveau. Having said that, Rococo tends to be even more grandiose and exuberant than Art Nouveau, leaving space for an even more fanciful frame design. Rococo also favours light woods, but features painted pieces much more often than Art Nouveau does, so you could go for a dark framed mirror with golden detailing, for a very strong presence!
If you’re styling your room after the Ancient Greeks or Egyptians, you’re looking for a very specific aesthetic! Ancient Egyptian interior design strongly features gilded highlights and grand furniture designs with dark woods and gold fused into a single piece. Ancient Egypt passed these traits onto the Greeks, who had incredibly similar styles, albeit with their own twist. Either of these designs is perfect for a gold mirror. If you can, attaining a specifically styled mirror to feature the designs of this era would be fantastic, but most designs that feature some artful detailing could be made to blend with these styles wonderfully!
