I have an antique mirror collection in my dining room, and I've been thinking about doing a blog post on mirrors. Then I saw the cover of the July/August House Beautiful featuring "15 Great Tricks with Mirrors". I flipped through the magazine several times looking for photos of mirrors before realizing this story was told in the magazine's The Last Words section at the back of the book. The reason I missed it was because there is only one photo.
In addition to pulling my three favorite designer "tricks" from the article, I've selected a few Drexel Heritage product photos to feature. They include The Mirror of Enlightenment and the Reflective Mirror from the Philosophies collection, the Belemy Mirror which is upholstered and can be customized (LOVE that!) and the Tisbury Mirror, available in a variety of finishes.
I recently mirrored the ceiling of a powder room and put a small modern crystal chandelier in the center to obscure the mirror. the room is like a jewel box, with the light appearing to float above. -- Thomas Pheasant
I'll put an upholstered bench or a console against a mirrored wall. The table and its reflection read as one complete shape. It seems to double in size, and so does the room. The idea is to pretend the mirror isn't there, so you want it to be as big as possible. Then it becomes a doorway into another space. -- Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz
