Inspiration :: Mirrors

Mirror, mirror on the wall… Wait. Scratch that. Fairy tales have been largely underusing mirrors if the wall is the only place they’re placing them.

This reflective piece of glass is not just a utilitarian device. When used in the right way, it can take a room from “eh” to “wow," it can transform spaces, and add a touch of glam to a set up that desperately needed it.

When used as an accent on cupboard or armoire doors, mirrors create light and depth in a room.

As backsplash in an unexpected place like the bathroom or kitchen, mirrors add a modern factor to them, whether they have an antique look to them like this project we did a while back or these shiny other options we found when looking around for inspiration.

And can anyone really resist a sophisticated piece of mirrored furniture?

In defense of fairytales, though, we have to admit, an amazing, over the top, statement making, focal point of the room mirror on the wall has to be the most beautiful of all.
