Mirror Envy

I have mirror envy. Of no mirror in particular. Just mirrors of all shapes and sizes, any sort of frame, both new and old.

I was reminded of this on my long walk home today from the Holden service centre where I had to take my car to be fixed (flat battery + electrical problem = $$$ and no car for the time being!!) when I popped into a mirror shop I had been wanting to visit for ages but had only ever passed in my car.

And wow, I was dazzled. As I wandered through the shop I 'bought' a mirror for every room in the house. Not because I think we should all be primping and preening ourselves but because I love the look of them and how they can become like pieces of art.

Do you love mirrors too? What are your favourites?


  1. I am a big fan of mirrors for wall decor. A great way of dressing your room without adding more colour which is sometimes essential.

  2. Yes, I like collections of vintage mirrors on a wall, or one massive vintage gilt one leaning against a wall (in my dreams). The starburst ones are very pretty too. :)

  3. Yes, I love mirrors too - especially groups of several together. They just instandly add a bit of sparkle, light and a different perspective.

  4. I love mirrors, there are so many beautiful designs to choose from it really is hard to settle for just one!

  5. My favorite design right now would have to be the starburst. Gotta love that mid century modern!

    I just stumbled across your blog for the first time and thought I would say hello! I looked through a few of your posts and love your style. I love blogs that follow a specific journey like yours with your house.

    I'm a blogger as well, about the world of art, but my history is in interior design and fashion. I love to hear what people are saying! Hope we get to see more of each other in the future.


  6. I'd love a huge collection of random mirrors in the entry of my new house, Design Files style!

  7. Hi Jane, great mirror selection! Love the image from The Design Files. Have fun, Lisa


Don't be shy! I'd love to hear from you ..
