dash of [framed] glamour

Looking around my living room I would say that it is welcoming and has a classic clean look. Even though I have a few glamorous accessories I really want to add one key piece that exudes glamour without going overboard. So, I have a mirror that I am going to redo the frame of in soft gold and I hoping it will turn out looking just like these...

Or maybe I will switch out the track lights in my kitchen for a simple crystal chandelier...but I will save inspiration on that idea for another post! What do you have in your home to add a subtle splash of glamour?

The top pic looks familiar at least in style and shape to some old chairs and a cabinet that I remember from an old apartment at 70 E. Cedar. I remember a gold mirror above them too. Simple and elegant.

I love the gold frame, I have a huge gold framed mirror in my bedroom that I thought was out, but I guess not, whoo hoo!

Oh Blair, your posts never cease to amaze me, you really have such lovely inspiring interiors. love love love it. The cabinet in the first pic is heaven!

My apartment is only newly lived in, and very lacking in glamour or style. If I could have one thing right now, it would be a gorgeous statement rug in a bright colour or pattern that is amazingly soft. You'll have to post pics of your mirror when you're finished! I love me some DIY

I think frames are so "in" right now and you can do so much with them... least of all frame a pic!

that bathroom is simply gorgeous!
I have a chandelier in my living room, but not as low as I would like... hubby didn't like it so we had to make a deal and place it very high... :(

Oh I can't wait to see what you do. I know I touch of gold will glam up the space in no time.

I add a little dose of zebra for my glam factor. I love it!

i have an antique gold mirror in my office (which is totally out of place mind you) but it makes me feel better to have something feminine and slightly glamorous in an ick office.
