Decorating with Special, Irregular Shaped Mirrors

In the entryway of our Fanfol Project, we styled two abstract, brass mirrors. We opted to hang one from the wall on one side and rest the other on the console cabinet. Strategically located adjacent to several windows, the placement of this piece was selected to reflect the natural light and brighten up the interior of the home. Likewise, the abstract shape of the mirror added a fun, artful touch to the room as well!


Maximize Wall Space with Arched Floor Mirrors

Also in our Fanfol Project’s mid-century modern dining room, we added two brass arched floor mirrors. The piece’s classic and sleek silhouette made it a timeless, high-quality addition that will never go out of style. Large in size, these mirrors were perfect for maximizing blank wall space and elongating the look of the room overall.


Add Character with a Fun Round Mirror

In our Fairway Project’s primary bedroom, we wanted to create a beautifully designed space, where our client could feel inspired to get work done. In order to achieve this and to fill in the wall space above the desk, we hung a fun and sophisticated round mirror. For a cohesive look, we opted to order the mirror in black to tie in the black accents found throughout the bedroom.


You Can Never Go Wrong with the Classic Rectangle Mirror

Moving further into our Fairway Project’s children’s bathroom, we styled matching rectangle mirrors above the double sinks. The antique brass brackets were the perfect complement to the brass hardware incorporated throughout the bathroom. Hovering slightly above the wall for added dimension, we love the modern impact and balance this pair of mirrors brought to the space!


Simply Sophisticated Square Mirror

They say simplicity is the ultimate sophistication, and this mirror a prime example of that! Suspended by a slim iron bar, this square mirror is the epitome of modern-minimal charm. Located ajacent to the front door and windows, the placement of this piece is perfect for maximizing light in this project’s entryway.
