9 Mirror Walls to Look Upon

Mirrors in the Stairwell

Danielle Muller


All vanity aside, I absolutely love mirrors. Maybe its the way they reflect light. Maybe its the distortion of image. Maybe its the way they act like backwards windows to some place we will never reach. Hanging groups of mirrors together, gallery-style creates a mini wall of wonder, and while you can get matchy matchy (paint the frames all one colour), you can also create random displays of beauty. Trial and error makes way for some sweet imperfections of endearment at times, and who wouldn’t want that to grace a wall?


The display above brings movement into the stairwell, a space often closed in, static. Note the off-kilter balance of light and dark frames and how they play with the two-tone stairs.


Mirrors on a Shelf

Coco Cozy


The way the light refracts in this room is divine. This mirror wall is not fixed so you could change them now and then if you found new ones.


Mirrors all Whimsical

Casa Abril


You wouldn’t think this collection of frames would work, but look at that. Whimsical and sweet.


Mirrors Painted Green

Dimples and Tangles


A range of shapes and styles come together with bright kelly green paint! Click the link for the how-to at Dimples and Tangles.


Mirrors on a Brick Wall

Tilly’s Cottage


The entire room appeals to me. Not only is the mirror wall something to look at, but the collection of looking glasses or magnifying glasses intrigues me.


I Dream of Chairs


Ok, that chair is cool, right? And the mirror wall is quite meticulous with the inner portion of some of the frames painted.


Mirrors with Chains



See? Reflections rule! Pop of turquoise…check!


Mirrors Under the Stairs



Way to make use of an awkward space. And with elegance at that.


Moody Mirrors

Whimsy Decor


The combination of the mirror wall and the way the room is lit is compelling. I want to browse and peruse and to find the treasure I am certain awaits me. I love mirror walls and am plotting one for myself as I collect mirrors that catch my eye. The question is, “are you looking right at the other half of you” as you plot your gallery wall with mirrors instead of art and photographs??
