Mirrors!

Mirrors! Probably the number one "tip" for living small is to use mirrors! That advice is given so much that I've actually read some designers advise "don't use mirrors! " Probably just to be different. I think mirrors can be as beautiful as art work. The way they reflect light and let you know if you have lipstick on your teeth! I myself have a weakness for the frame less mirror. Something so simple yet so pretty. Seeing mirrors group together is 2nd only to a group of black and whites photos framed together (for me anyways) Look for a mirror and put in a great spot. It'll look fantastic!

We who reside in small spaces can use mirrors under the guise of enhancing the space rather than our inner vanity!

I, too, live in a small space and am always on the look out for ideas, particularly for kitchens.

I've had a great time visiting your blog this morning. A delight to peruse the lovely collection of inspiring small scale design you've put together.

Regards,

Chef Jules

I love the first photo. I've always wanted to do a mirror wall instead of a photo wall in a small space ... maybe one day!

I have lots and lots! My family and I have grown out of our small space (where I used mirrors instead of art..cheaper) into a larger one, but I still love my mirrors!
