Use of Mirrors

You can ask my boyfriend. Every time we go in a furniture store, I say "we have to find a mirror for our entry, one for our bedroom and another for the dinning room".

However we still don't have any.

The thing is that mirrors are tricky : while they can brighten, glam up and open a room when done right, they also can be totally cheesy.

Here are a few i great (kind of safe) ideas.

1. Use architectural details (mantel, mouldings)

This one is nice but very tricky to do right (and I would leave it for corporate spaces) :

2. Above a bar cart (or a bar vignette)

Bar carts are cool. I am looking for one. I found nice ones on ebay. But still no crush.

3. In the entry (but preferably not in front of the door, because it's not very Feng Shui)
