One of my very favorite wedding presents was a gift from DH’s Aunt Gayle & her hubby that designed the coolest furniture (yes, I’m blessed to be surounded by creative family members!) They owned a company called Urbano out of Miami and their most popular retail location was Crate & Barrel. You know the pieces that she designed – the metal & copper top tables, large mirrors, metal coffee tables, etc. They shipped the largest mirror I’ve ever seen to our home and was a staple in our family room.
It was one of Greta’s favorite past times during her first years.
Baby Greta & the mirror.
What I love most about large mirrors is that they really open the room up and a small space can seem twice as big with the reflection of natural light coming from some windows.
The second thing I love is that it is a real statement piece.
Large mirrors can be a great alternative to expensive wall art.
I can never leave well enough alone & opted for more light in my favorite place. DH is still getting used to the scale.
Of course I reserve the right to paint it in the future 🙂
