I hope that it is not just me when it comes to being obsessed with over-sized mirrors because, in some of my rooms, I have more than one. With that said, to the ones who already know me, yes – you already know that I adore looking at myself, but for the ones who do not know me, you now know the main reason. However, I will add additional information to clarify – regardless if I am beyond obsessed with these beauties, I like that mirrors can be placed anywhere and in any room. Now, some would say, except for a kitchen, but it is not an exception because no design rule states this, so remember – it is all about personal preference.
When I refer to over-sized, I mean from floor-to-ceiling, at door height, can lean against a wall, one that will dominate a wall or when placed above a fireplace mantle. What I adore so much about these decorative beauties, is the fact that they can go behind a console table, in hallway, foyer, bathroom, closet, above a fireplace, attached to a ceiling, headboard – or basically in any room to capture the view of a well-designed space. The three main characteristics that mirrors have for me is the fact that they can lighten a room, give way to the illusion of a larger area, and what can I say, they are beyond timeless. So, no matter how styles change when dealing with the interior design world, mirrors will continue to fit within any style or era.
Design Tip: When incorporating a variety of mirrors throughout different rooms, go outside the typical aspects of design, and get crazy creative because this is what makes for an amazingly significant wow factor!
