Mirrors can have such a positive effect on a room. Whether it makes a smaller room appear bigger or add an interesting feature to a wall, they are always handy in making sure there is nothing stuck in your teeth or checking to see if any stains ended up on your shirt.
The variety of mirrors is endless suiting any taste or scheme but today I am loving white and/or vintage mirrors.
This picture makes me want to do a post on staircases. It is crucial for any staircase to be accented by a line of frames hanging on the wall. With this picture they have chosen mirrors over framed photographs, which I think looks really nice. The mirror gives it a simple, clean look where framed photos would provide a more warmer, cluttered look (which I equally adore). Yet, with the white staircase and simple wall colour, the mirrors work beautifully. It would be an interesting job trying to find a variety of vintage mirrors from around the place. I think the different shapes and sizes adds to the cuteness.
I love the white vintage mirror on the left. The shape and design is very refined and elegant yet I feel it would easily fit in with modern furniture. The way it contrasts with the colouring of the wall makes the white really clean and bright.
This mirror is a more plainer style than the mirrors in the two photos above. Though I love the vintage look, I still value the straight forward simple look. This mirror, doubling as a medicine cabinet (plus!!) is lovely. I love the shape of the wood, the freshness of the white, the fact that it is not only beautiful but functional! It allows the vintage vanity to shine where a more detailed mirror could take away from the cute details of the vanity’s legs.
These mirrors from Pottery Barn are very stylish, giving a beautiful feature for this room. The great thing about Pottery Barn is that they sell each of these shapes. You wouldn’t need to hunt each of them down but can be bought from one convenient location. Too bad Pottery Barn has not come to Australia.
Hanging it from the traditional gallery rail only adds to the quirkiness. I love the idea of having a rail running along the wall so I can hang mirrors, art or frames all in line.
