Oh What a Mirror Can Do!

MIRRORS ARE ONE OF THE MOST VERSATILE TOOL WE HAVE IN OUR TOOL BOX AS DESIGNERS. THEY OF COURSE ARE USED FOR FUNCTION, WHERE WOULD WE ALL BE WTHOUT A GOOD MIRROR IN THE MORNING? BUT THEY CAN ALSO BE THE PERFECT STYING TOOL.

HERE ARE OUR FAVORITE WAYS TO INCORPORATE A MIRROR IN YOUR SPACE…

Reflect Beauty


WHAT A MIRROR REFLECTS IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS WHERE IT IS PLACED. IF YOU HAVE A SPACE THAT YOU LOVE AND CANNOT GET ENOUGH OF, ADDING A MIRROR CAN BE A STYLISH OPTION TO GET MORE OF THAT VISUAL INTEREST. THINK OF A MIRROR AS A MULTIPLICATION, IF YOU REALLY LOVE YOUR DINING CHANDELIER ADDING A MIRROR THAT REFLECTS IT GIVES YOU TWICE THE BEAUTY.


ON THE FLIP SIDE, WE WANT TO AVOID PLACING MIRRORS IN A WAY THAT REFLECT THE THINGS WE DONT LOVE SO MUCH. AVOID PUTTING MIRRORS THAT REFLECT THINGS LIKE TELEVISIONS, TOILETS, MECHANICAL HARDWARE OR BLANK WALLS.


Create a Light Source


HAVE YOU EVER SAID TO YOURSELF, “I WISH I HAD A WINDOW HERE” OR “THIS ROOM NEEDS MORE LIGHT”. THIS MAY BE THE PERFECT PLACE FOR A MIRROR. MIRRORS REFLECT LIGHT THEREFORE CREATING AN ILLUSION OF MORE LIGHT IN THE SPACE. USE MIRRORS TO PULL NATURAL LIGHT IN FROM A WINDOW AND DISTRIBUTE IT AROUND THE ROOM.


Play With Style


MIRRORS COME IN MANY DIFFERENT STYLES AND SHAPES. MIX A MODERN MIRROR IN WITH MORE TRADITIONAL DECOR FOR AN UPDATED FEEL OR A MORE ORNATE MIRROR WITH MODERN DECOR FOR SOME CHARACTER. THE VARIETY OF SHAPE OPTIONS ARE A GREAT WAY TO ADD DIMENSION AND INTEREST IN WAY OTHER THAN A RECTANGULAR PEICE OF ART.


Evoke Energy


THIS MAY BE OUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT MIRRORS. REFLECTIONS IN MIRRORS CREATE AN ENERGETIC ENERGY. THIS HAS ROOTS IN FENG SHUI AND IS A PRINCIPLE WE LIVE BY OVER HERE AT BLUE COPPER DESIGN.

THIS MAKES AREAS LIKE DINING ROOMS, GYMS, ENTRYWAYS, AND PLAYROOMS GREAT SPACES FOR A MIRROR MOMENT. ANY PLACE THAT COULD BENEFIT FROM SOME ADDED ENERGY FOR CONVERSATION OR ACTIVITY.

ON THE FLIP SIDE, WE LIKE TO KEEP REFLECTIVE AREAS TO A MINIMUM IN RESTFUL PLACES LIKE LIVING ROOMS AND BEDROOMS TO EVOKE A SLOW AND CALM ENERGY.
