Make a statement!

This bold golden mirror creates a striking focal point against the clean white fireplace. Various other touches of gold elevate this space by introducing a sense of glamour and creating a warm atmosphere. 

Add depth

A frameless round mirror adds texture and depth to this eye-catching wooden installation above the fireplace in Catherine Crawford’s Cape Town home.  

Play with proportion

A large round mirror creates an interesting focal point next to the bed. It livens up a simple wall, while also enhancing the other oversized décor items such as the large bedside lamp, bulky ottoman and lavish bedside table. 

Just for fun 

Instead of just one big mirror, interior designer Claudia Fabian of Mer Design placed five smaller ones in Ilana and André Joubert’s entrance hall. This fun design element reflects light and colours from other areas in the room. “In addition, the uneven number of mirrors and their different sizes creates an interesting composition,” says Claudia. 

A Parisian touch 

The gold colour scheme in the main bedroom was inspired by embroidered vintage fabric that homeowner Colette Marias Nel bought in Paris. To tie in with the overall look and feel of the space, the ornate mirror was decorated with gold gilders paste she discovered in a Parisian art shop.

Take it outside

Outdoor mirrors can be positioned to bring more light into the otherwise dark areas of your garden or outside spaces. Against this dark focal wall, the mirror reflects greenery and light from the rest of the garden. 

Try something different

These stylish mirrors were made from timber bowls that were bought locally. Together with the basin, made from the same type of wooden bowl, they create an elegant aesthetic in addition to the otherwise industrial finishes of this bathroom.
