The mirror was first. It's been sitting around our garage for three years now, as it was too boring to bring inside. And my current rule-of-thumb is... if it's ornate and prissy, then it better be a funky color, or no deal.
Anyone can pick up a gold mirror just about anywhere. Where's the fun in that? Friend comes in, turns the corner and says, "Oh, nice! I have a gold mirror too. Mine is hanging over the couch, not the piano though. How creative that you hung it vertically. I'd never have thought of that!"
So... though my mirror still has the frilly-thing going on, at least it's owning up to it full-force-- a few dollops of Jamaica Blue ala Isaac and a smattering of chartreuse ala moi and now my studio walls aren't so naked anymore.
