The fireplace is usually the focal point in the room so let’s make it great!
Today I’ll show you some ideas using mirrors as the main piece of your fireplace decor so you can add some sparkle that very important space.
The most important thing to notice when using a mirror is what it will reflect. Make sure it reflects something appealing, whether it’s natural light, a great view, a chandelier, artwork on the opposite wall, or another piece of decor on the mantle.
Even though I like all the pieces in this picture, what the mirror reflects is not ideal. In this case, a piece of art may have been a better choice, or placing something else on the mantle and in front of the mirror to be reflected.
This next mirror reflects the beautiful branch and flowers that also add softness to balance all the wood pieces.
This mirror stands out for its gold finish and detail. Adding mantle pieces that are more minimal and blend with each other in color, lets the mirror be the focal piece
