This Unexpected Lighting Brand Is My Favorite New Home Decor Source
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: My Instagram ad algorithm knows me better than I know myself. Scary? Arguably, yes. But helpful? Also yes. Countless times (more than I’d like to admit, TBH), a quick scroll through Instagram turns into an impromptu shopping spree, thanks to the app’s curated product carousels interrupting my feed. It’s like having a virtual personal shopping assistant that sources hidden gems from some of my go-to clothing and home stores as well as new-to-me brands.
The latter was recently the case for me with what I’d consider one of my greatest online decor discoveries. For context, I’m a sucker for all things squiggled, scalloped, or curved, but especially so in mirror form — there’s just something about a wavy, whimsical design that I can’t get enough of. So many of these trendy fluid styles sadly fall way out of my budget. Enter: my always-one-step-ahead-of-me Instagram feed, which introduced me to the absolutely perfect under-$200 squiggle mirror from a somewhat unexpected retailer, Shades of Light.
