Mirrors, Mirrors in the Wall

How you dress up your walls and how you accessorize an outfit have a lot in common. In both cases, simplicity sometimes rules, and sometimes, layering in more elements adds some needed drama. We all know how a mirror produces a space seem larger, more open, and adds measurement. Imagine what happens when you take three, five, seven or just a few dozen mirrors and set them together as wall art. A high fashion look.

The bunch of contemporary circular mirrors elevates this space from a hallway to a grand entryway. The mirrors include a sense of openness.

Hint: When you’re organizing a small set of mirrors, think in strange numbers. Odd number groupings of items are nearly always more appealing to the eye. So think 3, 5 or 7 mirrors.

Give a staircase a grander presence using a mixture of mirrors on the wall leading your eye up the steps. It is more unexpected than the standard design of organizing family photos along a staircase.

Hint: The white frames of the mirrors mix against the white walls and retain the frames from becoming a distraction. That way, the mirrors are the stars.

Amoroso Design

Circular mirrors — big and little — float behind a staircase, making an eye-catching announcement. The mirrors reveal the exact same framework, which generates a pleasing arrangement to the eye.

Hint: If you’re using mirrors that share the exact same framework, they naturally will seem like they belong together. Play about with spacing the mirrors randomly distances apart from one another. The randomness creates a sense of movement.

Circular mirrors can seem very geometric and contemporary, based on how they’re displayed. Here, circular mirrors of the exact same style — only in different sizes — are spaced out throughout an entire wall. The effect is striking, bold and contemporary.

This space captures a classic rustic style. Everything appears to coating together so nicely — the grey walls, the large gray-framed mirrors, and the mixture of terrariums onto a rustic wood table. The bunch of mirrors behind the table definitely creates a stunning backdrop.


Seven mirrors using a more exotic style add intrigue to the space. The frames actually draw the eye the mirrors have a starburst shape I love.
