Happiness is........

      Looking in a mirror and liking what you see.

  Mirrors are meant to  reflect beautiful  things.Not only ourselves, but nature and light. When used in design, they can be the main focal point in a room. There are an endless styles, and frames of  beautiful mirrors for the seaside and coastal look. Some mirror can be used as pieces of art . Mirrors can make small rooms appear larger and ground a room . When choosing a mirror you will need to determine what is the main purpose of the mirror, is is to balance a look you are going for? Are you trying  to create more light, or is it to make a space look larger than it is? These are things you will need to consider as well as the scale of the mirror in relation to the space. Here are some excellent examples of mirrors being used in great design.

I'm not sure which one I love the most - the seaside casual and shabby chic are probably my favorite. Hope you have a lovely week! :O)
