Design Essentials: Mirrors

There are many factors that go into creating a dynamic room. One of the ways to make a space feel layered and lived in is by hanging things on the wall, but it can also be one of the trickiest. If a client is not by nature an art collector, it can be hard for them to snap their fingers and produce a “collection” of art that is meaningful and personal. One of my go to tricks is to use mirrors as art.

There are so many beautiful and interesting options out there these days and a mirror can be hung on any wall, in any room. They help bounce light around and can be just what a room needs to balance it visually. Because a mirror has such versatility, it can be moved around should a pretty piece of art be purchased at a later date and hung in its place. Mirrors are a design essential.
