LOVE THE LOOK: ROUND MIRRORS

The addition of a round mirror - over a bed, over a sofa, or even at the top of a stairway landing - is a great means of creating a dynamic and dramatic focal point for a space. While I was sourcing online for decorative elements to add to my client's space, I came across some amazing and stylish round mirrors. The style is mainly in the frame and the finish. Something so ornate and gilded can add elegance and eclecticism to a very linear space. And then again, a mirror frame and finish can also be graphic, and re-enforce a pattern in a space. Either way, mirrors are the perfect way to add glamour, light, and depth to a space. Here are some of my faves I spotted while sourcing...

Some round mirrors can be used in a series, for example a group of three to line a hallway or over a bed. A mirror can be used to create a great backdrop for a foyer vignette. A round mirror can be layered onto a bookcase to create a focal point in a space. And some round mirrors can be used in pairs, on either side of a bed or together over a sofa...

One thing is for certain, especially the more detailed the frame is, adding a round mirror is an excellent way to create a focal point in a space...







Two of my favorite designers are masters of using mirrors in a space:
Tobi Fairley and Phoebe Howard...

Even if you have an old mirror, in storage or already up on a wall, why not refresh its look with a fresh coat of paint and reinstall it in a new location in your home? By doing this, you can simply refresh the look of your space as well as add some glamour to a room. This would also be a great way to refresh your space for the upcoming holidays... A round mirror is great to layer a wreath on...

It may be hard to believe... but yes.
It is THAT time of year again..
