Reflecting Your Style- Mirrors

April 1, 2016

Who else remembers when mirrored backsplashes were a trend? Wow what a time, can you believe how much things have changed?  While we learned about this trend on HGTV, we can  truly appreciate  how mirrors help to open and brighten our spaces.  Their charm is remarkable and adds an elegance to any room.  In your average home, mirrors can elevate the environment with little effort and that’s what makes them an accessory to highlight.

1.) Style-

Mirrors range from traditional to modern and spark the interest of guest when they’re visiting.  Their beauty and mystery is limited only by our imagination as custom options now cater to those demanding uncommon features like LED back lighting or unique antique washing.

2.) Hallmarks of Quality-


Some  indications of time honored quality and details include labor intensive finishing processes like beveling and antiquing.  The frame finishing in a high gloss lacquer or distressing can also accentuate the beauty of your mirror.  Intricate lattice frame work or pewter nail heads offer visual interest.  And often gold leafing or inlay work in the frame provide clues to an old world reproduction.  Recent years have given way to trends we love like shagreen framed mirrors and the timeless combination of mirror on mirror framing.

3.) Location-

Our featured image shows door size mirrors on closet doors.  For a twist from the conventional locations in Bathrooms and above nightstands, think bar carts, serving trays, coffee table tops and decorative boxes.  Where ever you choose to place these handsome gems their likely to engage conversation from your guest.

Did you know than now there are even TV / mirror combinations that work wonders in unconventional spaces?  When a room has to function for multiple duties like an office doubling as the Dining Room this can be an exceptional alternative!
