DECORATE WITH… Mirrors

DECORATE WITH... MIRRORS!  Ideas + Inspiration + Fabulous Finds for decorating with mirrors in your home decor

No matter the size, we’re always looking for ways to make a room appear bigger!  Introducing mirrors – of any size and in any room – will give the illusion of a larger space, as well as providing visual interest + depth.

It often seems like with decorating, there are rules to follow to create a balanced, proportional space, but when you mix in mirrors, there really aren’t any rules to follow.  Aside from being great wall “fillers”, mirrors can bring depth and light into a room.

Whether your desire is to display one large mirror, a grouping of the same mirrors, or a collage of different style mirrors, you truly will create a statement wall of art!  Mirrors provide dimension and depth, and can be the focal point and conversation piece for any room.
