The Simply Luxurious Life®: Mirror Magic

Mirror Magic

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, show me my

most beautiful look of all.

Mirrors really can do magic when it comes to home decor.  By enlarging a room, bringing in extra light or adding a touch of conversation and whimsy, the possibilities a mirror can provide to an otherwise simple decor are truly impressive. 

One mirror I have collected over the years was made from an early twentieth century oblong diamond paned window that was removed from my rental apartment on the Nob Hill in Portland.  My mother, who is always thinking of creative ideas, suggested I ask the contractor to save the window – which he thankfully did – and turn it into a mirror.  This piece has since greeted my guests as they enter my home and most likely always will no matter where I live.   It brings back so many memories of a time I truly enjoyed and could not have been simply purchased in a store.

Enough chit chat, let’s get to the mirrors.  I’ve included images of mirrors used in a variety of different rooms in a home.  Have a look.  I would love to know what your most creative use of a mirror has been in your decorating experience.  Enjoy!

Lovely pictures! I like most picture number 9, this is how my room could look like. I don't have that much mirror decoration experience, but
I have a big one, where I can see my hole body, to check my outfits before leaving the house. Most mirror just show your image until the knees, but what is an outfit without shoes? ^^
How much mirrors do you have in your whole house/apartment?

These rooms are amazing! I inherited an antiek mirror from my grandmother. It's really beautiful. it gives such a peaceful and serenity feeling to my room. It really feels like her gentleness is surrounding my room and protecting it.
