Decorating With Mirrors

When decorating a room, it's those special details that make a difference. A mirror is one of the most versatile pieces used when designing a room. They make a space appear larger, reflect light or a view and become a stunning focal point.

 Mirrors can be displayed in every room of the house. A favorite for designers is most definitely the entryway.
Perfect to reflect the light as you enter and exit the door, expand the space and also gives you a spot to do a final check on yourself before leaving the house.

You can never have enough mirrors in a home. Try something different - Hang multiple mirrors on the same wall remembering to group them in a visually appealing way.

Create a reflective grouping. Randomly group mirrors of various shapes and sizes, featuring different frames or borders for a collector’s look. 


Enhance your decor. We so LOVE the leaner mirror.You know those large, upright mirrors that aren’t hung, but rather placed on the floor and rested against a wall. Reflect your beautiful room!


 Dining Rooms are often that one room that lacks square footage. Hang a large mirror to visually expand and double the space and reflect the overhead lighting fixture.

Use mirrored furniture to bring on the glam plus take advantage of their reflective qualities. Give the illusion of expanding the floor space and room by tricking the eye with this beauty. 

Reflect a little personality. Place an inexpensive full-length mirror atop the dining room table as a centerpiece. Showcase you favorite decorative items or vases of flowers at various heights. Add candles to reflect their soft, flickering light.

Do you decorate with mirrors throughout your home?

Refresh your kitchen without an extensive remodel.

The Power Of Paint!

For a quick kitchen pick-me-up, Paint the island a new contrasting color and accessorize with this same color throughout the kitchen. (such as dish towels, tea kettle and dishware) Much easier than painting all the cabinets too!

We are loving this cobalt blue island in a mostly all white kitchen.

Are you looking to liven up your kitchen but afraid of the color commitment? Try painting the interior of kitchen cabinets a contrasting color — in this case apple green. Aside from supplying a splash of color, it sets off your dishware too.

Kitchens typically don't have a lot of wall space, thanks to cabinetry, backsplashes, windows, and doorways. Use the limited wall space as a chance to display color without overpowering the room. 

 Here a sable brown was used and don't miss out on the additional color to the "fifth wall" -- Otherwise know as the ceiling! 

 Jazz up an otherwise traditional kitchen by painting the floor in a diamond pattern. If you have hardwood and the original wood is in good condition, let its natural color provide the other half of the color scheme. Here a translucent finish of black was used to allow the wood grain to show through.

 This was just a few of our favorite ways to add new interest and color to the kitchen without having to do a complete overhaul. What color would you like to bring into your kitchen?
