On the wall…who is the fairest of them all?
Well, not exactly.
But I was walking around my apartment the other day and it occurred to me that I really had a lot of mirrors.
A design “trick up your sleeve” if you ask me.
As you know, I live in a pretty modest apartment. The place where I spend my time dreaming of that house that I will buy someday where I can spread my wings and make my own. Since the grass is not always greener on the other side - I am staying put for a tad longer and always coming up with ways to make my living space better.
Trust me, it is not that I walk around my place looking at myself in the mirror all of the time.
What do mirrors do for a space? You may have heard the design rule that mirrors can help to visually enhance and extend a space. This works in two ways - mirrors give the illusion that the space beyond and behind the mirror continues and that it is not a solid surface; and mirrors bounce light and brighten a space, making it feel larger.
For me the mirrors in my space blend in to the interior and are not so much the focal point. How do you use mirrors in your interiors?
