With the selfie becoming a crucial part of every smartphone owner’s lifestyle, it’s never been more important to have a designer mirror in your home.
However, having just any old mirror in your home is simply not enough these days. In an unsurprising turn of events, mirrors often reflect their surroundings and can be décor success or failures depending on how effectively they’re styled.
So, while mirrors are indeed the glamorous and sparkly additions to home décor that interior designers around the world love, designer mirrors often have a learning curve as well.
So, in today’s blog, we’re going to explore the best ways that you can style your designer antique mirror in your home to make sure it always looks its best.
The Big Lean
“Modern French” décor is almost something of a white whale in interior décor circles, even the French ones. Why? Well, because it’s a style of decorating and design that thrives on the concept of being “effortless” and “casual” while staying sophisticated at the same time. It’s a tricky aesthetic to accomplish and requires a great deal of intuition to achieve.
As a result, styling a French designer mirror can be an equally difficult task. French mirrors thrive on the idea of being both profoundly aristocratic and elegant and can make any space a destination. Still, they can be difficult to visually “fit” in a home without standing out for all of the wrong reasons.
Thankfully, the easiest solution to this problem is to execute the famous “French Lean.” Simply place your mirror on the floor and artfully lean it against the wall. This technique creates a casual vibe in the room and makes your mirror feel less bougie as a result.
Large & In Charge
While we’re on the subject of more giant mirrors, it’s time to address the elephant in the room.
Yes, more enormous mirrors are back, and they’ve returned with a vengeance. So, for your next living room mirror purchase, you should consider going as big as you can.
Large mirrors are perfect for making small spaces seem big and larger areas seem even more magical than before. So if you can find a mirror that’s big enough to touch your ceiling, then don’t be afraid and embrace the latest return of a glorious trend in interior décor.
Round is a Shape
The big mirror fun doesn’t stop with the living room either, with bathroom mirrors getting the love as well!
If you love the idea of upgrading your bathroom beyond the old medicine chest that’s currently on the wall, then you’re not alone. Nothing says “I know what looks good, no matter what,” quite like a large round mirror. Try a Rattan design or metal-framed piece for the best effect, where their minimal framing will maximize the visual space created by the sprawling curves of the reflective surface.
