Iconic Pieces // 4 simple ways to decorate with mirrors

According to designer Andreea Avram Rusu there are never rules when it comes to decorating with mirrors. “Mirrors bring light and depth into rooms — they’re like decorative windows you can move around and place as you like,” she says. Mirrors have several benefits and can “reflect and emphasize views and colors from art and/or adjacent walls creating special effects,” designer Celia Berliner says.

A bold and gorgeous mirror can be the focal point of a room. Designer Andreas Charalambous of FORMA Design uses this extra-large mirror to “reflect the light from the balcony below and to serve as a last-minute check point as the owners head out to work,” he says. “The mirror itself becomes the artwork in this minimal set up.” Even a large wall mirror can bring simplicity to a space if used correctly.

Add mirrors to any space you want to visually expand. “The location and placement of the mirror are key when utilizing them — you want to ensure that it will not create undesirable reflections and will allow it to maximize its innate qualities,” designer Celia Berliner says. Mirrors, like this large dining room one, brighten the room, create additional luminosity and add dimension to the space, she says. Design by Celia Berliner.

Full-size floor mirrors can make a dramatic statement in a small space. “Using a framed, full-size mirror placed on the floor and resting on the wall can become an incredible asset in many ways in a bedroom, living room and even at the end of a hallway,” designer Celia Berliner says.
