Simple Décor: Decorating with Mirrors

I promise I’m not vain, but I’ve recently realized I don’t have nearly enough mirrors in my home. When we first moved into our apartment, I was taken away with the idea of having a picture gallery and I’m now thinking I have far too many photos on the walls and not enough space-enhancing, life-reflecting lovely mirrors.

We do have two mirrors, though (excluding the one in our ancient bath vanity). The first, framed in gold gilt, hangs in our bathroom and I love the richness it adds to the space. It’s also special to me as it was a wedding gift from my Aunt. The other is a round mirror with a thick white frame hanging in our bedroom. I like it because, as it hangs opposite our big window, it works as a pretend window. I also love it because it reminds me of a ship window and, against our blue walls, gives our bedroom a nautical air.

Do you have many mirrors in your home? Do you like the idea of clustering them together or having one grand statement mirror?
