What is it about a mirror?
Why do designers like to use them when adding to a wall? Decorating with mirrors in a home is the number two read post of mine. So this is a follow up to Mirrors as Art.
As a designer, my answer would be mirrors are so beautiful by themselves and enhance and add ambiance to the surroundings. If you hang a mirror opposite a window or a beautiful chandelier, it reflects light and brightens a room. I also think they can create a HUSH.
I love this photo, not because I love the lips mirror, because I really don’t, but it’s perfect for the design of this room. This clean contemporary style home has repeated soft curves throughout the space and the mirror plays off that very well. Notice the chairs are even facing towards it, as if it were about to speak…
This photo is a great example of how decorating with mirrors does NOT have to be an old-fashioned idea. It’s fresh, young and full of a whimsical vibe.
So cool and I truly don’t think there would be another mirror exactly like it, do you?
Interesting application is this very tall ceiling room. A very STRONG design concept here and it all works and brings an enormous amount of light into the space. I’m guessing it is being utilized for a dual purpose such as possibly partitioning off a closet or bath in a loft style apartment. What do you think?
Here’s a great example of Mirrors as Art for the DIY’er. I like the collection of differing shapes and sizes and even that a couple of plates and letters got tossed in to shake it up a bit!
What is your favorite way to decorate with mirrors?
