Mirror Mirror On The Wall…

This was the first antique that I ever purchased (a 19th Centry French mirror from David Bell Antiques), and probably one of the smartest purchases I’ve made to date.

Mirrors are fantastic to incorporate into spaces…Everyone knows that mirrors have the ability to enlarge rooms, and create the illusion of more space.  When using mirrors, however, I try to additionally encourage clients’ to take the “reflection” into consideration…What is that mirror showing or reflecting?! 

You have the ability with mirrors to showcase additional areas / features of your home.  When placing them, though, look at what is being reflected and be mindful of the fact that the reflection is just as important as the vignette that you’re creating.  Good design is “reflected” by well-executed decisions.
