Suzanne Dimma's Gilded Mirror
Create vignettes to display personal treasures.
"A friend of mine had this mirror forever, and I traded it for an old computer," Suzanne explains. "The mirror was falling apart, in a state of total disrepair — the entire top was missing. 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-gilding the entire thing. 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, like the antique clock that belonged to Suzanne's grandmother.
