Mirrors are an integral part of successfully designing a home. They provide practicality; they are able to enlarge a room, practically doubling it in size with the illusion of space. Mirrors have the innate ability to draw attention due to the uniqueness of shape, fame, and grandeur, functionality aside. Blank walls are immediately brought to life by choosing an innovative, eye-catching mirror that does far more than reflect an image. Decorative mirrors have the ability to dramatize a wall and reflect the personality of the room as a statement piece.
Place a mirror in an area of a room to capture the ideal amount of light and thus reflect and illuminate it. Take window placement and pre-existing artificial light sources into the equation when deciding placement. Consider choosing an interesting object, accessory, or piece of art to place the mirror opposite to double the impact. Placing a wall mirror parallel to an object in a close vicinity will create interesting shapes in light and darkness and promote symmetry in a room. A large mirror can replace the missing light source if a window does not exist in a room.
Mirrors that serve as a piece of art are due to the intricacy of shape, textiles, and fabric. Below we’ve chosen five of our favorite intricate mirrors that are artworks in of themselves, each cultivating a different style.
The Mina rectangular mirror provides texture to a space. The stacked oyster shell frame feels like a sculpture due to its great depth. This mirror is a modern take on a coastal-inspired mirror.
The Jena Mirror’s bronzed wooden beads add movement and dimension to a stagnant space. The variation in large and small beads creates a macrame pattern. The imperfect sphere is a true piece of art.
The natural rattan Fabian circular mirror extends 6.5’’ off of the wall creating a dramatic statement and centerpiece in any room. The hand-made loops of natural white cane provide texture to a smooth wall or wallpaper.
The Talullah mirror is an authentic piece of coastal abstract art. The whitewashed wooden frame adds natural elements to a room. The beachy look is an eye-catching object to capture the eye’s attention.
The Heidi Layered shell mirror adds an element of glam to any blank wall. The oversized rectangular shape and kabibe shell frame make a subtle statement. The tenuous colored shells and slight shimmer are the perfect contrast to surrounding neutral colors.
