Mad for mirrors…….

Good morning! I started this post months ago so part of it was from a while back and then I tweaked and added on just recently. Always fun (and convenient) to find a post in your draft box that was somehow lost in the shuffle! Let’s face it, mirrors will always be a key ingredient to virtually any room in the house.

They add instant drama, open up even a tiny space and have become really important decorative pieces. There are so many fabulous mirrors available at incredible price points today that it makes it possible to have a mirror in every room if you choose!

I have a? lot of mirrors in our house, almost every room come to think of it:) I like when I see creative uses of mirror and I am a mega fan of anything using antique mirror, it is so beautiful! So just a fun post about mirrors, unique ways to use them and a few personal faves. How about you? Are you? mad for mirrors too?

Really like this beautiful antique mirror screen, it opens up the space and is a great “privacy” wall if using to separate from another room/space

My own bathroom, I am a fan of inset mirror with molding to “frame” it, think it’s a great look for a bathroom,? for mine I chose antique mirror

What a closet! The mirror just adds to the drama and magic of this space, Mirrorupgrade.com

I like the way Jan Showers created maximum impact with this very large over sized mirror in this beautiful gray dining room

This exemplifies beautifully how a relatively small foyer can open up so dramatically by applying mirror to a foyer wall, Florida Design

Really loving this jewel box of a dressing room and the glamorous fully mirrored unit by super talented Andrew Skurman

This is gorgeous but I am afraid it’s too delicate for my crazy cooking skills lol….Amy Howard

?This grand space is incredible! If you look carefully you will see a large paneled mirrored wall with a venetian mirror on top….amazing!

I really like the idea of an entirely mirrored wall behind the sink……enlarges the room and looks so pretty!

?To me, there is no room where a beautiful antique mirror cannot look amazing!

Who said mirrors are just for indoors? With a setting like this, I don’t blame them for putting one outdoors

Could it get any more French than this? Love the mirror and paneled doors

Another gorgeous example of using mirrors outdoors, Atelier de Campagne

This beautiful jewel box of a bathroom is a stunner, with its handpainted over mirrored walls.

How beautiful are these doors, a very glamorous space! South Shore Decorating

This is an interesting way to apply mirror, in panels on the back of a door, great looking!

Love the idea of antiqued mirror for a bar wall, so chic

Now talk about eye catching! Beveled mirror subway tiles for a home bar backsplash, It’s all in the details blog

Mirrors can go just about anywhere, here it is perched on one end of the tub wall…….might be a little too convenient:)

This is so interesting and dramatic, antique mirrored squares give this space a more transitional look, South Shore Decorating

I really love the mood of this room, the colors, the French accents, the blue and white (of course) and the large? trumeau just gives it such a “wow factor” Home and lifestyle

These mirrored doors with geometric panel work are just exquisite……really love this look, Indulgy

?Mirrored doors for a closet are just gorgeous, no way around it….love the look!

Talk about a dramatic hallway….good way to not gain weight if forced to stare at yourself from every conceivable angle:)

How about mirroring an entire wall with antiqued mirror? Talk about enlarging a space….its amazing! Casa Sugar

? ? ? ? ? ?

This mirror is making a truly beautiful statement in this lovely French inspired powder room….this is fabulous! P Chateau

This is a great looking vignette , oversized paneled double mirror above a screen, so dramatic!

I do love the effect a beautiful ornate Venetian mirror can have even on a simple bathroom Homeedit

I adore the glam factor a mirrored backsplash gives this beautiful kitchen but admit I would be petrified of it breaking!

Jan Showers, known for her glamorous spaces certainly created one here, with this beautiful mirror and mirrored console.

Mirrored furniture has gotten extremely popular, and I think an accent piece is a great way to add a bit glamor and sparkle to any space, here shown in two possible finishes, Decorpad

No mirror? makes quite the statement that? a chinoiserie mirror can..wow! Nostell Priory

This picture is a current inspiration for a small built in I am looking to have built, gorgeous! Love the antique mirrored inserts, Brooks and Falotico

This is a clever way to enlarge a small space. Elegant mirrored panels set inside wood frames, Bent Highlands

Once again Jan Showers brings the “wow factor” to yet another gorgeous room thanks in part to the drama created by using a huge over sized antiqued mirror

Have to end with a bang, how magnificent is this incredible antique mirror hallway!! I so want to do this…..genius Timothy Corrigan at it again!? This is one of those spaces that becomes magical at night when you put all the lights on…

 

AND SOME OF MY MOST FAVORITE STYLE MIRRORS FOR THE HOME…..

?
Give me a chinoiserie mirror any day, any color…….Circawho is a great source for them!
And an overszied trumeau can take a pretty room to a spectacular room! After doing this post I am now on the prowl for one….
And love these beauties from Circawho, who always has a fabulous assortment of mirrors
And then there are the stunning Venetian mirrors from Decorative Crafts, they make to? me, the prettiest ones around!
