Round up: Mirrors of All Sizes

Mirrors are one of my favorite accessories.  They brighten up a space, add interest and texture in unexpected places and dimension to walls when you don’t want to use artwork.  A good mirror isn’t hard to find, but I thought I’d round up some of my favorites for you in case you needed a little nudge in the right direction.

A few tips:

  • Always check and make sure the mirror can hang in the direction you want it to– not all mirrors can be hung vertically or horizontally. Some are made to only hang one way.
  • Round mirrors add a lot of nice soft movement to rooms with lots of angles.
  • If you need a very narrow mirror for a powder room or other small space look for vintage ones on Etsy, Chairish, 1stDibs or similar. There aren’t a lot of small mirrors made these days!
  • For really tricky sizes and dimensions, go custom. Any frame shop can make you a mirror with a framing moulding of your choice! Or we like to make grasscloth wrapped mirrors from here which add texture.
  • Consider mirrors when light is an issue- when we had to close up one of the two mirrors in our dining area for our addition I placed three rectangular bistro frame style mirrors in it’s place to trick they eye and bounce light.  It worked wonders.
  • Horchow and Wisteria are having mirror sales today!

  1. That is so nice of you. I love mirrors too. Thank you for all the work you did for this post. It’s awesome!

  2. Maybe a future post about rugs in a kitchen…different shapes of kitchens and how many rugs make too many rugs. How to blend rugs in kitchen with those in living room or dining room if open to each other. And what if your great room also has direct line of sight to the front/back door with rugs. Basically, not a designer out there has attempted this one b/c, I fear, it may be a no-win situation. However, many of us ponder these questions as we want our homes to be beautiful while serving our active families and housing our dogs!

  3. Exactly what I needed! Also, can you share some good options for wall clocks? My parents can’t stand that we use our phones for the time. They feel like they’re in a time-warp when they come to my home :)
