There is something so beautiful about wall mirrors when it comes to achieving a winter style in your home. Mirrors and mirrored furniture have an icy, sultry feel that perfectly encapsulates the snowy decorating season.
In the above image from Desire to Inspire, you see the beautiful marble veining from the floors reflecting and dancing across the mirrored sink vanity. Antique style mirrors add sophisticated detail to any room.
Let's take a look at some beautiful images below from Elle Decor that may just inspire you to bring some mirrored pieces into your winter decor.
Like in the image above, the addition of mirrored accent furniture is a very subtle change, but makes all the difference in any room.
The glint and shine that the delicate room divider adds to an otherwise empty corner anchors the sitting area and opens up the space even further. And while a darker, solid side table might flatten the lightness of the room divider, the layering of an additional mirrored piece blends perfectly.
As you can see,they don't compete but rather compliment each other as well as the rest of the fun furniture in the room.
In this gorgeous dining room, the mirrored surfaces take center stage. The antiquing of the mirror on the mantle has a feel that so perfectly signifies a snowy, wintry home decorating season. And when you have a room as large as this, you can take risks with scale and grandeur as they did by layering mirror atop mirror as well as featuring a mirrored dining table.
The addition of patterns, varying textures and layering turns this big room into a fun-filled, interesting space.
A typical installation for a winter-style wall mirror is the bathroom. Here you can go from a simple vanity mirror to a room full of mirrored surfaces. As long as you flex your taste and editing muscles, you can pretty much let you imagination run wild.
I love this image above because it's simplistic but very detailed and chic. Choosing bathroom mirrors with luxury styling is a great way to have fun with detailing.
This beautiful bedroom vignette serves double duty as a mirrored work desk and a nightstand. The traditional lines of this desk almost make it disappear against the bold patterns and colors that surround the it. This is a useful tactic when using a larger piece that you don't want to feel overbearing. The reflecting light and bright white base remind me of the sun rising on a beautiful winter morning.
In short, romantic bedroom furniture must include a mirrored dresser.
