  • Feng Shui: Great Ways to Use Mirrors

    [caption id="attachment_6363" align="alignleft" width="275" caption="Mirror Design"]Design[/caption]

    Mirrors are a great design item because they can be used in any area of the house. Here are some tips for incorporating mirrors in your home for a great design aesthetic:

    Mosaic Mirrors
    Mirror shards are a great way to liven up a mosaic. If you enjoy craft projects, then a Moroccan-style table top or wall panel---using colored tiles interspersed with pieces of broken mirror---is a good way to add interest to a sun-room.

    Antique Mirrors
    Old, spotted mirrors provide Old World charm. They are perfect for adding a Gothic touch to an interior. Collect old mirrors at flea markets and yard sales. Hang them in groups and in corners to create a cloudy, time-worn elegance. Do not worry about try matching the frames; mismatching plain and ornate mirrors is the epitome of shabby-chic.

    Frame Decorating
    Where mirrors are used in a themed room---such as a sea-shore inspired bathroom---decorating a plain mirror frame using sea shells, sea glass and small bits of driftwood will add to the seaside charm.
