Design trend alert: have you been spotting lots of round mirrors with straps? I actually think this “trend” is one of those decor elements that’s been reinvented over the last couple of years from a previous beachy concept (interior designers, help me out with the history here!). Regardless, I’m totally in love with this look! I was hoping to get one of these puppies for a powder room in our current apartment, but in my desperation slash mania to get a mirror hung in time for a party we hosted last month, I didn’t spend any time on the interwebs to find one on budget, and with a short enough strap. Lesson learned: the options out there are quite good, and as always when decorating, patience really is a virtue (one that I’m sometimes good at, sometimes not. As evidenced by the meh rectangular mirror now hung in said powder room. #oops).
Are you a fan of this look? I must say, there are quite a few different styles you can play around with, from a rope-hung mirror to one with a classic leather strap. My preference is for the leather straps that encircle the mirror (and have the added decorative detail of a buckle); of course, these seem to be among the pricier options online. But is it just me, or is this trend ripe with DIY potential…?
