Mirrors! A Little Self Reflection is Necessary in Any Room
One of the more classic element in any decor is the use of mirrors, no room would be complete without the light and depth that a mirror adds. Mirrors aren’t always clear or totally reflective, in fact they can be mysterious or as reflective as you choose. An antique mirror adds patina and age, a concave mirror distorts the truth, and an old fashioned mercury mirror adds old-world glamor and style.
Dinning rooms and living rooms are great places to add mirrors; according to Feng Shui principles the dining room represents a family’s wealth, and the living room is where the family has gatherings and has parties so the mirror magnifies the festive energy. It’s also the perfect room to play up the luster and sparkle of candle light and mirrors.
Mirrors for centuries have been used to reflect not just so we can see our selves or anything else clearly; but also, mirrors have a reflective quality that adds glamor and sparkle in a seductive, and abstract way.
Whatever your style is I hope you have found some inspiration in the rooms above.
