Modern: Mirror, Mirror On the Wall

Mirrors do so much and hardly receive any of the credit. Believe it or not, these artistic pieces are far more than basic home accessories for mid-century homes in Palm Springs, CA. I ‘d love to tell you how mirrors help us make the most of these sunny California days.

Mirrors Spread Light:

If you’re lucky most of your rooms are blessed with natural light~ but that’s not always the case. Rooms on the north end of your home may not receive as much light as others. An easy fix is to add mirrors to spread existing light. I don’t want to get scientific, but once the mirror is installed it will catch sun rays and spread them graciously throughout the room.

Mirrors Add Warmth:
If your bedroom happens to face the north chances are the room has little natural light and can be a bit gloomy. The first thing I would suggest, is a darker coat of paint to balance the shadows. Next, I would make the most of the natural light with the strategic placement of mirrors. In the end, you’ll have a cozy space you won’t want to leave!

Mirrors Embellish Space:
Mirrors do wonders for small spaces! They can make a room or area appear larger than it really is~this simple fact makes foyers, hallways and staircases prime areas to include a series of mirrors in a creative way. With a little color and style this simple embellishment can turn into an art piece.

The lovely mirrors in this post are from Room Service and Boulevard respectively located in the Palm Springs Uptown Design District.
