Mirror Images!

I have been a bit obsessed over the past year with mirrored walls! Whether they are walls, alcoves, stairways, or over fireplaces, I love full on mirrors!! Especially antique mirrors. They have a subtle smoky quality, which takes away from that jarring new mirror 70's look of the past.  There are so many places to place mirrored walls such as above mantels and fireplace surrounds, walls of a small powder rooms, back splash of galley kitchens or butler’s pantries, behind bookshelves and in alcoves. The possibilities are endless, but the only draw back is the cost depending on your glass fabricator. If you cannot afford large mirrored sheets there are options such as tiles! There are an array of sizes and styles such as subway, diamond and even large squares, and if you feel handy you can DIY a small project! If at all hesitant leave it to the professionals, good luck!
 Explore the world of mirrors they’re not just for framing anymore!
