Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

(mir-er) -noun
a reflecting surface, originally of polished metal but now usually of glass with a silvery, metallic, or amalgam backing

As you settle in and begin to decorate a house, one of your first purchases should be a mirror-it will travel with you from room to room, house to house.  Mirrors brighten up a shadowed living room with the reflection of lamps that are tucked in a foyer.  They act as art on a blank wall that you just cannot seem to find the right masterpiece for.  Every room should be dressed with a mirror, whether it be an accent or a focal point.  Does your mirror show you what you want to see?

As Thanksgiving approaches and the setting for the big day is your home, make sure you find the perfect mirror at Cotswold MarketPlace!

Does Your Hall Reflect the Fall?

Designer Peter Marino says "One piece of furniture or art is all you really need to make a room come alive". What better time than the beginning of fall to infuse some life and color through artwork into your home. Cotswold Marketplace is fast becoming the new Charlotte hot spot to find amazing artwork by local artists.

The amzing yellow orange glow from this painting contrasts beautifully with the midnight blue sofa, creating a focal point in this space. (from Elle Decor)

Notice the way this artwork completely sets the tone for this space as a playful and "colofilled" retreat. You can't help but be happy as the gorgeous hues jump off the white walls. (from Elle Decor)

Don't forget the frames! These simple black frames against the pumpkin spice walls really make these botanicals pop! (from Southern Accents)

We encourage you to come into Cotswold Marketplace and add some fall spaice to your favorite spaces.
