When it comes to interior decorating, ask I haven’t got a creative bone in my body and am useless at visualising how colours palettes of walls, floors, furniture etc can be harmonious. One thing I know however, is that MM and I are in need of a kick-arse, bold, make-a-statement mirror for the dining room in our newly renovated apartment.
Friends had recommended we visit a shop on the North side of town that would solve our mirror issues, but unfortunately they didn’t know the name of it, they just gave us general directions. Like the blind leading the blind, somehow we made it to the said ‘mirror shop’, which as it turns out is called The French Corner.
I wasn’t expecting this to be successful; after all we were unsure of what we really wanted in a mirror, and these things never end up being easy (or cheap). When we walked through the doors of The French Corner….voila! It took only seconds to find a perfect match for our dining room and then fall in love with pretty much every item in this delightful French inspired shop.
From prints of Paris and the River Seine in the 1920’s, to old clocks, handbags, jewellery, storage holders, bedroom suites and framed photographs of the gorgeous Audrey Hepburn, The French Corner has so many beautiful trinkets, furniture and clothing items which ooze sophistication, class and taste.
A purchase from The French Corner will set you back anywhere from $20 to $2000. There is no end of stock (kept beautifully clean, dust-free and well maintained) but store owners Gary and Ann have handpicked a selection of suppliers to bring to their clientele individual and original pieces that don’t have the slightest hint of gaudiness, but rather inspiration, beauty and warmth.
Whether you’re looking to trim your home or adorn yourself with jewellery and accessories, The French Corner will bring out the creative decorator within you and with professional, friendly service you’ll no doubt be pleased to support this local business.
