I love mirrors!

A decorative mirror can give any room that extra something to brighten, lighten and open up the space it reflects. Whether it is the main piece of decor on the wall or just a small accent, this piece of “furniture” can do wonders for an otherwise boring room.

Let’s explore some possibilities. How about a large, richly framed mirror in your entry hall? It doesn’t even have to be intricate and/or ornate. Rather, a simple yet sophisticated  mirror – like the one pictured – will make a bold statement. It’s the W-O-W factor that so many clients constantly ask me for!

One final note: Mirrors can be coated or “antiqued” to give them another unique quality. Ask your interior designer for a number of affordable options. And remember, mirrors never go out of style!
