I've been considering (eventually) replacing the mirror in our guest bath for something less...square plate glass looking. Something more decorative and less builder-grade. Much like Jessica did in this bathroom facelift:
While I've found a few bathroom mirrors that I'll keep in my back pocket, what I've really been loving are all the really unique decorative mirrors out there. While I'm not short on decorative mirrors in my house, I sure wish I could use some of these somewhere.
Mirrors are one of those things that can cost you quite a bit, depending on where you get them. I find that mirrors are best to stake out at local discount home decor stores. I've seen some great ones at Homegoods! Mirrors are a great addition above a console, in a gallery wall collection, above a sofa...I could go on.
Here are some good inspirations to get you thinking:
1. Stag Antlers Mirror from Anthropologie : Because who wouldn't want this?
2. Montara Mirror from Serena and Lily : Simplistic, clean, slightly nautical. Plus one of my favorite combos of white and wood.
3. Two-Tone Hex Mirror from Target : I could see this just about anywhere. An old vintage powder bath, a modern space, a chic teen's bedroom.
4. Queen Anne's Lace Mirror from Anthropologie : A light softer version of the classic sunburst mirror. Great in a feminine bedroom.
5. Salvaged Mansard Scroll Mirror from Restoration Hardware : I love the architectural forms in this mirror. An older home with a lot of character might benefit from this. Or perhaps even a new home with a minimalist design scheme--all the charm lies in the shape while the white remains clean and minimal.
6. Copper Square Metal Reese Mirror from World Market : These cute mirrors come in rectangles as well. I thought, individually, they would make a great addition to a collage wall, or even grouped by themselves. I've always loved mirrors and frame that hang from a rope or chain.
7. Euphoria Mirror from Target : another interesting rendition of the sunburst mirror, but definitely a stronger and more statement-making one; very architectural.
8. Hexagon Monte Mirror from West Elm : I love this mirror. I only wish it were a little larger because it would be perfect in my guest bath! It's simple, but the modern metallic finish and shape make it the perfect interesting mirror--horizontal OR vertical!
9. Metal Porthole Mirror from Target : I see porthole mirrors a lot in antique stores, only they're made from actual portholes (a Gulf Coast thing I guess?). Anyway, they're usually huge and heavy and expensive. But also wonderful. I'm glad someone took the time to create a faux porthole mirror. It's almost as cool as the real thing!
Maybe you have a blank spot in your home where you can use something like one of these. Some of these aren't such a bad price, either, depending on what you need it for, but a select few may need to wait for a good sale :)
Until next time, folks!
