Suzanne Dimma's Gilded Mirror
Create vignettes to display personal treasures.
"I got this mirror in a trade for an old computer from a friend of mine, who’d had the mirror forever," says House & Home editor in Suzanne Dimma. "It was falling apart, in a state of total disrepair. I had an artisan re-make it, by creating molds of the one side that was intact and duplicating it on the other side and re-guilding the entire thing. The entire top of the mirror was missing, and it was rebuilt by hand. It was a labour of love, but it’s beautiful because it looks like it could have been imported from a French antique store." Now hanging in her living room, the mirror takes pride of place with books and other curios, including an antique clock that belonged to Suzanne's grandmother.
