And here is my take on the inspiration. The first part that struck me was that amazing mirror. To re-create that look, I stamped and heat embossed this hexagon pattern on cardstock. Then I stamped the image onto foil, cut them out, and adhered the hexagons to the background. (You can see the close up below.)

To finish it off, I added white and fuchsia cardstock that was die cut with Spellbinders Labels Twenty Five. And then a lamp stamped in Teal.
