Good morning and happy Monday! Are you ready to take on another week? Our weekend was filled with home projects and working on a holiday surprise for Mysa, so it kind of feels like we should have another weekend just to relax. Speaking of holiday surprises, I’m sending out a newsletter today filled with details about a little gold box and what it has to do with bringing freedom to the captives… if you’re interested in hearing about it, make sure you’re signed up for my newsletter!
Today’s interior inspiration is all about round mirrors! Specifically large round mirrors. Large round mirrors that make a total statement, take up a whole wall, and give a room a totally different feel. Ready for this? I’ve rounded up 5 different places to hang a large round mirror for maximum impact.
Over a Bench
This first location is for very large mirrors. Placing a huge mirror over a low bench in your entryway makes a big statement. It’s perfect for checking out your outfit as you dash out the door, and will bounce a lot of light around your entry. I love this look for a simple, yet stunning statement.
Above a Dresser
Hanging a mirror over a dresser is a bit more traditional and expected. This location is perfect for both adding some interest to your bedroom walls, as well as adding function for your morning routine. Whether you apply your makeup here, or simply double-check your hair or jewelry, having a mirror over your dresser is always a practical idea.
Over a Couch
Hanging a large mirror above a couch is a bit more unexpected than over a dresser. Here it acts much more as a piece of art, providing very little functionality. This statement piece can make a smaller living room look larger and brighter, and can be a great solution if you’re looking for a neutral wall hanging.
Over a Credenza
A mirror over a credenza is similar to one over a dresser, however credenzas have a wider variety of purposes than dressers. Credenzas are often used in entryways, hallways, and living and dining rooms. Again, the mirror acts more like a piece of art in this situation, but can also be useful if the credenza is in an entry for a last minute look before heading out the door.
Above a Sink
The last spot in the house that I love round mirrors is also the most obvious—above a sink. I love the look of a round mirror rather than the usual rectangle as it gives a bathroom a more unique, custom look. Shaking it up and doing something unexpected is always fun, especially in smaller spaces, like a bathroom.
What’s your favorite spot for round mirrors? Do you like it when they provide function as well as beauty, or do you prefer them as a decorative piece of art? Add a round mirror to your space today to see how much character they can bring to a house!
