Mirror Mirror On The Wall

Never underestimate the power of a great mirror as a feature in a room. Whether it be a small downstairs toilet, the mirror that rests above your bed or the giant feature mirror as a focal point in your sitting room or social space.

I always liked the idea that a mirror should reflect your tastes and also your imagination. My mirrors of choice always have a very gilted and opulent feel to them. A nod to the angelic depictions from Greek mythology, cherubs or faces watching over me. This is my taste and not everyone may like it but by choosing something that ignites your fantasies you will buy something that makes you smile every time you look at your refection.

A good place to start is choosing an era? I like Rococo and art deco. These themes work well together as there is the balance between ostentation and simplicity. Next you must consider that choosing a mirror should be just as important as any piece of art you choose to buy for your home. When buying a mirror do your research. Visit your favourite home-wear stores and then find out if the manufacture selling the same thing online for a fraction of the price?

Finally and one thing to always remember, is that it might actually cost you less to buy an original piece, than to buy a cheap, worthless replica when buying a vintage or antique mirror. An original will always look better and is likely to hold it’s value!
