Mirrors, Mirrors on the Wall

Mirrors are one of those items that can sometimes be overlooked when decorating a home and that shouldn't be the case. They're not only functional--they can open up small spaces, especially when we're talking about those with very little natural light.

One of the best deals I snagged to-date was on a standing mirror with a wood frame that I purchased as a teenager. Even now, there isn't a day that goes by without me at least taking a glance in it before rushing out the house for work. It's just that useful, even after all these years. So whether it's a full-length mirror for your closet area (I've had my eye on this Ikea number) or a vintage one mounted on the wall over a living room sofa, think about where you might be able to use one. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
