Terrie’s Top 5 Mirrors
I used a pair of 8′ tall mirrors in this very grand entry to enhance the ‘grandness’ factor and reflect the live plants in the urns. Hung opposite each other, mirrors can create a room expanding impression because they each will double the space perception (which this room didn’t need, but it looked great anyway!).
This collection of mirrors appeals to my asymmetrical leanings. I love that the finishes are similar but all different, the shapes are similar but different sizes and they are hung so attractively off center. This would be appropriate in a small entry or to create the feeling of an entry, in a narrow hallway to add interest, on an empty wall space just about anywhere.
Mirrors in bathrooms are a requirement but nothing says they have to be boring and square, or worse yet a big sheet of mirror that spans the length of the vanity. Shake things up with an unusual mirror that will up the WOW factor.
These mirrors from CB2 really appeal to me. Initially I liked the shape and the nod to a starburst mirror. Then I read on to find they are made using recycled bicycle wheels and since my husband is a bicycler, I’m now really interested. Combine the ‘green’ aspect, the reasonable price of $60 and the style factor and I think one of these could be a contender in the new home.
Cindy’s Top 5 Mirrors
I love the dramatic graphic look this oversized mirror provides in this space. In addition to reflecting light from the window it reflects the primary colors in the room. Leaning a very large mirror on the floor or mantel is a more casual approach and a popular way to display a mirror – just make sure it’s secure.
I’ve always loved beveled mirrors and this mirror is comprised of 25 beveled mini-mirrors. It is apparently being used in an outside room which is a great way to multiply the beauty of the outdoors. Love it!
Multiple mirrors double the fun and create a graphic statement in this living room as well as adding architectural interest in a plain room.
The finish,the arch, the shutters and the shelf – what’s not to love about this unusual mirror? It would be great in a vintage setting, a country home or even something more modern as the contrasting element.
T.V. in a mirror over the focal point of the room? Fascinates me…as do T.V.s in a bathroom mirror.
