I recently moved into my first home as buyer, not a renter. This has obviously brought on a flurry of decorating ideas that were never allowed in my previous abodes and has resulted in a few bold choices. One of the existing quirks of my new digs (and trust me, there are plenty) is a mirrored wall in the dining room. My first reaction was repulsion but now I am kind of crazy about it. And of course more and more mirrored walls are popping up in my inspiration files these days. It makes the room larger, more glamorous and fills it with so much light. But layering is key: paintings, furniture, smaller mirrors all look fabulous in front of a mirrored wall and have the ability to tone down the 80s-ness of it all. Here are a few of my recent favorites.
