From Silent Movies to Talkies — get the look of the Oscar-nominated French silent film ‘The Artist’:
This primarily silent film takes place during the end of the silent-movie era and the beginning of the time when films started including sound. This era brings to mind a sense of romance.
Filmed in black and white, the lines of the furniture and interior accessories really stand out. The sets from this film show a variety of styles — from boxy Art Deco to curvaceous and elaborate Art Nouveau. The more traditional furniture from the picture above would have been from an earlier period, but would still be around during the 1920s and 1930s.

An antique-looking mirror, like the one show below (with Mary Pickford, who’s house was used for part of the filming) is timeless and romantic:
