It's said that the first early mirrors in the home were pools of water in caves, made to serve as a means of looking at one's self (and a likely cool and unexpected element to the earliest of homes). Over the years the mirror has played a dynamic and supportive role in decor and design. It can be a single statement in a room, grouped together with photos and other decor, or in some cases, even make for entire walls.
When working with the mirror at home, it doesn't take a lot of money or skill to decorate and this is one item that can do more than make a pretty look -- it create the illusion of space in a smaller room or apartment. The key in finding yours is to think about the place it'll go and the style of your home or room. With so many online stores and shops carrying this classic home piece, you'll be sure to find something that works well for you.
Don't be afraid to group mirrors of all types and sizes in a single space, similar to how one would do with paintings and art. After all, this is one item that can be versatile and ready to go no matter what look and feel you want, or might change to down the road.
