Why Mirrors Will Always Be Impactful in Design, Part 2

Share It

I recently professed our love and appreciation for the almighty mirror, a tool in the design world that has proved to be steadfast time and time again.

Mirrors hold aesthetic power in their ability to function both as a “look-at-me” focal point or grounding agent in a room and a strategic, barely-there chameleon that works to amplify other design elements or home features — like wallpaper, ceiling height, and natural light.

So without further ado, as promised, here’s Part 2 of our deep-dive into the magical prowess of mirrors. —Kelli
