Get inspiration on places to put a mirror in your own home and see my upcycle project using a vintage mirror!
Chances are there are a few places in your home that would benefit from the addition of a mirror. If you find a mirror you are loving, buy it!
Making the decision to add a mirror to a space doesn't always have to be for the purpose of maintaining personal image. A mirror can do wonders for opening up and brightening a space up by reflecting natural light in. Here are some of my favorite areas in the Sunlight South home that feature mirrors!
The Getting Ready Area
Whether it is inside of your closet or hanging on your bedroom door, this is one of the areas where a full length mirror is a MUST! For my own space, I chose an oversized black rectangular mirror.
This is another area where I feel like a mirror is a staple. It's a great way to set the tone for the rest of your home and to have one final look before you head out the door. I chose this round brass mirror as a preview to the different metal tones I have in my home.
My entryway can get a little dark, so I love to leave the front door open so the mirror reflects the natural light and greenery outside!
The Living Room
I chose not to have a TV in this room due to the fact that there is not enough space to add seating for everyone to be comfortable. The living room is home to my piano which I like to play daily - so I love keeping it as a more formal, music focused area.
This mirror was an upcycle project that I did with an old ornate mirror that I had for years. Here is a similar one. It was originally gold, but I spray painted it with Rust-Oleum's chalked spray paint in linen white.
Since I work from home, it was important for me to have a place to jot my ideas and daily goals down. I didn't want a typical whiteboard, because I as afraid it would take away from the modern and feminine aesthetic I was going for.
One day, had an "aha moment" where I decided I use the mirror as my white board and incorporate it into a gallery wall. I have a lot of doors in my office, so it serves a purpose as both a whiteboard and to make the space feel more open. It's a win-win!
