Lori Tippins Interiors

We are LOVING one of the homes featured in the current issue of Traditional Home, designed by Lori Tippins. The soft, muted color palette, the combination of painted and wood furnishings and accessories, and the details are absolute perfection... 
In case you missed it, here are some of the highlights! We'll let these images do most of the talking...

Love the layout of this kitchen. Love the custom made lanterns and the breakfast room furniture. Notice the amazing herringbone patterned floors here as well. We love it all! 

 These chairs are cleverly upholstered in vinyl-now that's where beauty meets function!



Wow...what a spectacular, elegant, and fresh home!

Oh, Louis!

We love Louis Philippe mirrors! 
These French beauties come in a variety of sizes, and we believe they are such a versatile piece in a home. Some mirrors are more ornate than others, and they are usually seen in either silver or gold gilt. We especially love the antique ones, but there are good reproductions out there if you like the shape but not the "worn" look that the antique mirrors have.

We love their elegant yet simple shape...

These mirrors look great over any type of chest, especially when layered with accessories.

Isn't this Louis Philippe mirror stunning behind this freestanding tub? What a great way to add light, style, and glamor to a bathroom.

This Louis Philippe mirror looks amazing paired with the set of prints in this entry way.

Notice the subtle detail on the frame of this silver gilt Louis Philippe mirror. Love the beading detail too.


This Louis Philippe mirror is used as a vanity mirror in a glamorous master bathroom.

 We sold this antique Louis Philippe mirror at our former shop.  It was so pretty in person...

Isn't this mirror so sweet here?

Doesn't this mirror look fantastic over this sofa, paired with sconces?

So now you see, these mirrors look great anywhere-over a desk, in a bathroom, hallway, entryway, over a chest, or even a sofa! Do you own a Louis Philippe mirror? Where does yours hang?
Hope your week is off to a great start!
