Mirrors.... Those I have.... Those I wish I had!

Mirrors.... Those I have.... Those I wish I had!

This weeks blog post is all about mirrors! Every home has them and used creatively they can make a real difference to any room. They capture light and reflect it back into the room, they can give the illusion of the room appearing larger than it is and used on shelves they highlight the accessories and colours around them.... Oh and of course you may want to use them to actually look at yourself too!

I'm often being asked where I bought the mirrors in my home when I post room shots on Instagram, so here's a run down of my mirrors at home plus the three that are currently at the top of my wishlist.

Mirrors in my home

Entrance hall....

This black and gold convex mirroring the entrance hall is a recent addition that I'd had on my Rockett st George wishlist for ages.....

Black & Gold Framed Convex Mirror £80 - Rockett st George

Convex is certainly the word right now when it comes to mirrors. Bring some reflected light into your home with this absolutely gorgeous Black & Gold Framed Convex Mirror. 52 cm (dia)

The large round mirror in the entrance hall started life as a green framed mirror from Ikea...... I painted it with a black floor paint so that it wouldn't chip off easily......

For similar try.... 

Large Modasa Mirror £115 - Tin Design

The striking Modasa mirror is hand forged from iron. The mirror frame is rich with texture, the metal is shaped and forged into this bold design. The handmade process is enhanced by the dark iron finish. This statement piece would be an ideal addition to a hallway or sitting room. 60cm (dia)

Kitchen Mirror....

I have two of these industrial style mirrors in the kitchen, the other one is in the bar area,  and they are the ones I get most asked about on Instagram.....

Tobias Black Metal Mirror 90 x 90 cm £103.50 - Maisons du Monde

Formed by black metal baguettes, this modern mirror will enlarge you room, whilst remaining sober and discreet. To be fastened to the wall or placed on a unit, this black mirror will fit particularly well into an industrial or contemporary ambience.

Open plan area.....

Another favourite on Instagram is this round industrial style mirror- Ive had it for about six years and it's one of my favourites. I love it next to the exposed brick and wallpaper here.... It was a bit too bronze and shiny for my tastes so I added some watered down black eggshell paint to the frame to tone it down.

  • Large round chic industrial window mirror with a bronzed effect metal frame
  • Size: 1005mm (dia)

Bedroom.....

This small gold effect round mirror from HM Home sits so well next to the brass on the light fittings and the gold foil prints from The Curious Department in the corner of the bedroom.....

Rustic mirror....

I wanted another round mirror here as it is in the same area as the large industrial round mirror, I love the rustic vibe of this mirror with the rope and wooden frame.....

P4066224.jpg

Rope hanging wall mirror £21.99 - Wayfair

Rustic wooden frame mirror 32cm (dia)

Master Bedroom....

Every bedroom needs a full length mirror doesn't it? I have had this mirror for about ten years. Originally all silver, I added some brass effect paint to it so that it tied in with the gold and brass accessories in the bedroom...

A similar style....

Marquise Silver Mirror £299 - The French Bedroom Company

Design-wise, it’s the ultimate bold baroque double-framed mirror. Hand-carved from wood with egg-and-dart-border, embellished with acanthus leaves, flowers, scrolling and swags, all finished in a beautiful silver leaf. This is a real statement mirror with timeless and elegant style. W90 x H176

Bathroom....

I love big mirrors but think small mirrors added to shelves work really well too....This shabby chic white shutter mirror in the bathroom was destined to go on the wall but after I popped it here whilst deciding which wall it should go on decided I liked it where it was and its sat here ever since....
