Mirrored Walls

You’re all familiar with the transformative powers of a good mirror. Their reflective surface makes rooms look bigger (see this post), adding effortless glamour to any space. So if one mirror is good, surely more is even better? 
Antiqued mirror tiles provide an enchanting backdrop for this quirky vignette. The splash of red against the worn finish of the mirrors and table is delightful, isn’t it? I love that the designer hung paintings right over the mirrored wall. Brilliant!
Plain mirror tiles completely transform this more modern space, creating the illusion of another room behind the console table. Even if you’re not strapped for space, a mirrored wall is a great way to carve out a little nook and define it as separate from the rest of your space. Think how many architectural eyesores could be given new life with this easy trick!
The best part about this idea is how inexpensively it can be worked into your home. These Ikea mirrors are just $6 for a set of four — and you could antique them yourself using this genius tutorial

This project is definitely going on my must-try DIY list! What do you think?

  1. Antiqued mirror is so chic, and especially on a wall if you live in a small NYC apartment 🙂 I say use mirror whenever possible! The illusion of space is priceless!

  2. Mirrors are my favorite way to accessorize a wall, as well as to hide something like a utility box. They make spaces feel so much brighter when they reflect sunlight. Love the second image!
