12 MIRRORED ACCENTS THAT SHINE | Thou Swell https://thouswell.com/12-mirrored-accents-that-shine/

It’s often the unique mixture of textures that make a room stand out, and mirrored finishes have made their way from wall to table and floor. But the effect isn’t just for vanity’s sake – mirrors have a rich history of craftsmanship and significance. Originally reserved for royalty, the creation of mirrored surfaces was protected by artisans and required expensive materials, but the art-deco movement and mass-production techniques made mirrors popular and accessible. It’s probably that optical illusion effect that makes mirrors so special. You can create the effect of an infinite space in a room and play with the focal points and spread of light with mirrored accents. Not to mention the fact that you can see your reflection at all times which is not vain at all, right??!

    Looks so aesthetic to hang many small mirrors instead of a single big one. It is a good idea for toilettes also!

  3. I always get a kick out of fun house mirrors. They aren’t the most refined things in the world, but they’re great for a laugh! Anyways, I love the prism sconce 🙂 -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s
