A Mirror for the Living Room

These old pieces from dressers come in the most ambitious shapes. I've got my eye on a perfectly round one next.

This one is three feet high and two feet wide. I love the way the reflected vignettes change, according to where you stand.

And it's just the right amount of over the hill. A chipped corner. A mist blooming. A darkened spot.

Just love these old mirrors with all their aged personalities. Beautiful fern too!

Gorgeous! I've had it in mind to get more mirrors in - light is incredibly important in northern England - and now it's a certainty!

Looking Glass House is always a very fascinating place!

Beautiful photos! Such pretty peachy colors all together.

in my darkish house, mirrors are a salvation. I do have a perfectly round one hanging next to our coat closet for quick peeks at hats and hair before we go.

My mother has an oval, bevel-edge mirror that belonged to my great-grandmother. Starry and silvery. Such charm!

I've been following your blog for a while. Just want you to know that I enjoy it so! Lovely.

Vintage mirrors are lovely with their reflected stories that they never tell but we can imagine.

It is perfect, Anna. Love the reflected glimpses into the room.

Mirrors are very helpful in a room and it makes the room look bigger and brighter.
