I’ve always thought that using a mirror in a small or large space is one of the best ways bring in some more natural light. Now that the days are getting longer and sunnier I thought it would be the perfect time to share with you my top 3 suggestions and some lovely mirrors that are around this season and how they can help boost your interiors. Designer does come with a price tag, but it is so worth it for the visual impact as well as the fact that high quality designer mirrors are built to last and last. They are designed to last a lifetime so think of it as a quality investment.
My first suggestion when selecting a designer piece: if you often change your mind about interiors then buy a classic silhouette. Gubi takes mid-century design and adds Scandinavian twists to its collection and the Adnet mirror is a beautiful example of this. The design with its classic lines and refined, minimalistic style oozes elegance and sophistication. It can be attached to the wall for a more formal look or simply lent against for a casual and laid back feel, giving you the freedom to change it up if you like. Its smooth frame has been delicately covered in leather, which really emphasises the quality when you see it in a room. This piece could lend itself to a traditional or contemporary interior with ease.
Secondly, instead of statement wallpaper or an overdone wall full of framed pictures, try a mirror that combines beauty, interest and function. The Cube mirror by Malabar features 7 geometrically designed mirrors that cascade together to form one large piece. This mirror is more like a work of art than a looking glass and its that extra factor that makes this a must have piece if you are looking for something large and a bit different for your wall space. I love the completely unique idea and layout behind this mirror; it is a real talking piece that still retains classic lines and flawless simplicity.
Finally, multipurpose is key especially in a small space or family home, and, if you can find a clever new piece that delivers this, then it is really worth considering it for your home. Opinion Ciatti have got this covered with their ingenious Bel Vedere Bookcase, available from The Longest Stay, which doubles up as a full-length mirror. This piece is versatile and would work wonderfully in a bedroom, the surrounding shelves filled with make up or jewellery. Equally, it would look great in a living room as somewhere to keep your books and toys whilst still lifting your space with exquisite, natural light.
