Mirror mirror on the wall... my top 12 favorite mirrors in home design!

We're using a huge mirror over a client's fireplace that I absolutely love and it got me thinking how much I love mirrors in home design.
 
Mirrors can enlarge a space and add drama 
 
 
They can reflect a beautiful chandelier and are perfect placed opposite a window
 
 
 
They can add oomph to a hallway
 
Spice up a large wall
 
 


 
 

Liven up your entry



And spark up your fireplace

I'm becoming an addict. But c'mon tell me this lamp doesn't look better than it did before????
 
For some reason I totally forgot to take a real before picture of this floor lamp which I am sooo guilty of doing on several projects (I'm getting better). So I found this picture of the lamp from like 5 years ago. I purchased it from a store called Scallywags that went out of business like 8 years ago and I paid a pretty penny. Trust me on this.
 
Here's what the floor lamp looked like before...

 
 
Now here's the after:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
Kind of amazing, right? Doesn't even look like the same lamp, right?
 
I'm also going to divulge two (2) other trade secrets demonstrated in the above photo.
 
1. A touch of black in every room is a must. A black lampshade with gold lining makes a simple floor lamp look elegant and rich-looking.
 
2. Also, if you have light colored furniture like my blue and white wide-striped slipper chairs from Lee Industries... place a textured throw on them to keep sticky, grimy hands away from them! ha - so there you have it.
 
My plan is to purchase this lamp here to replace the other one...

Love it, right?----
 
But until I do ---this works don't ya think?
 
 
 Do you likey? yes, no? or
should I just bite the bullet and get the Arteriors lamp for that spot now?
