Mirrors aren’t just for showing the fairest of them all. They can be the secret weapon in your decorating arsenal. To a certain extent, mirrors take a backseat to art. While art is integral to making a room feel finished, don’t forget about mirrors! They can make a small space seem bigger because of the light they bounce around. And they can also brighten up a dark space for the same reason. I have a few projects in the queue right now so I’ve been shopping for mirrors lately. I’ve found so many amazing pieces so I thought I’d do a roundup of my favorite mirrors that I’m loving and share the mirror love!
I love the casual look of a full-length mirror leaned against the wall. This rectangular mirror from Wayfair comes in quite a few different finishes but my favorite is the champagne silver!
This collection of round mirrors is a versatile and budget-friendly choice. You could either group them all together for a truly unique look or hang them separately to get more bang for your buck. For under $50 you could buy 2 and have even more options!
Bone inlay mirrors are all the rage now. I like the blue tones in this mirror. It evokes a slight Mediterranean vibe maybe? Something like this would look good in my family room since I’m leaning towards a cream-colored couch instead of the brighter turquoise I’d been eyeing.
I adore this mosaic mirror from Serena and Lily even if the price tag gives me pause. It’s offered in 4 different colors but my favorite is the white, followed the blue. But the red or yellow versions could really add some pop of color to a room so I’d say you can’t go wrong with any of them!
Here’s another one from Serena and Lily. The wood detail of the frame adds interest and depth. I could see this mirror working well in a farmhouse-style room or even a home with a coastal feeling, which is one of my favorite feelings!
This bone inlay mirror from CB2 makes a very striking statement. This mirror would be the focal point of any room yet could work with any type of decor.
The shape of this floral-inspired mirror is a work of art in itself. The fact that it’s also a mirror is just a bonus!
I’ve had my eye on this mirror from Restoration Hardware for a while but the $1000 price tag is just too rich for my blood. I still love it though and am determined to figure out a DIY version that’s easier on my pocketbook.
I’m getting closer to being ready to start on some of my projects! I think I have a solid plan now for all the rooms I want to tackle this year – the girls’ room, the extra bedroom upstairs and the family room. I sat down over the weekend and played around with Floorplanner.com and also the Ikea kitchen planner to get a feel for how things could be arranged. Visualizing the rooms like that really helped a lot. I was able to make decisions on some things I’d been having trouble with.
I love the feeling right before a project gets underway! Stay tuned in the coming weeks and months for progress and updates!
