Mirrors, Mirrors on the Wall
Paintings and prints are wonderful, but mirrors bring sparkle and shine, along with a sense of depth. I was rearranging the furniture in my home (as one does regularly, right?) and I realized that while I’ve collected several pieces of art that I love, I have very few mirrors. Thus, you are now the beneficiary of my long, window-shopping mirror hunt! Here are several favorites that I came across during my search.
- The addition of a little hoop on the top of this round mirror is a nice touch.
- The large center mirror is clear, but the decorative outer edge is made of subtly antiqued, mirror glass.
- This is as much sculpture as it is a mirror, and it comes in brass or silver.
- Lucite and brass! Imagine how gorgeous this would be with the wall color behind showing through.
- Note the scale of this one. It’s 40″ in diameter! Such a statement maker.
- These are small, but perfect mixed in with other pieces or tucked away in a little corner nook.
- A piece like this with beautiful inlay detailing looks great mixed with more minimal furnishings.
- A nice update on the starburst mirror trend.
- Trendy, faceted geometry gets a twist with an old-fashioned antiqued finish.
- Another great alternative to the ubiquitous starburst mirrors we’ve all seen a million times. This is made of wood that has been painted to mimic porcupine quills.
- Sometimes you just need a big, heavy iron mirror to anchor things. This may be the one for you.
- The tortoise finish on this bamboo mirror would bring a lot of warmth to a room.
- Use this giant mirror in a room in need of some architectural interest.
- A small mirror with intricately carved pine is a lovely choice.
- This is a love it or hate it kind of mirror. (I’m on the “love it” team.)
- On trend with an octagonal shape, but more timeless than most. A great choice above a dresser.
Which mirror (or mirrors!) would you love to see hanging in your home?
