IN THE DETAILS :: GRAPHIC MIRRORS

Mirrors are one of my favorite decorative accents to play with in a space. Custom or salvage, or straight off the shelf, there are so many ways to get playful and graphic with them. Here are a few of my current faves!

This entire space is inspiring in its set up – the way the paint and the curtains create a dramatic and entirely different space for the bed is visually captivating. But the use of mirrors is also a genius little trick to letting more light enter the nook while filling up a very high wall in a graphic way.

Grouping mirrors down a hallways is no new idea, but this is taking it to a whole new level. The graphic black and white paint job creates an impact on its own, but the mirrors bring a playfulness with their bubbly arrangement and help the eye travel down the hallway. The circles also balance all the strong lines in the space as well.

Moving to a couple of softer options that still bring a nice graphic element to a space, here we see how some very simple, framed mirrors grouped together over a sofa can create a subtle impact. I really like this alternative to one large mirror as it feels a bit more like artwork, and can be an more inexpensive solution!

Then again – sometimes simple isn’t always subtle… or cheap. An antique mirrored panel like this one is a bit harder to come by and a bit more of a hefty purchase, but talk about a showstopper! It makes a really interesting replacement as a headboard and works because of its sophisticated yet graphic lines. Whereas one large piece of mirror in a bedroom can look a little gaudy, the two examples we’ve got in this post show how to do it right!

    The mirrored paneling behind the bed/as a headboard of sorts is incredibly unique, and a beautiful touch. I’ll be keeping that in mind when I redecorate :)

    I have the tiniest bathroom ever and mirrored the walls above the tile and then put white lattice over that…the tiles are GREEN…but probably not your favorite shade…as the house is almost a hundred years old. :) franki
