Another Mirror in the Dining Area

Another Mirror in the Dining Area

Yesterday's AT Daily Email had Maxwell sharing with us his recent installation of a mirror in his dining area. Coincidently, we have a very similar set up in our home as well...

The mirror we used is not as nice as Maxwell's Room & Board one, but it works well for what we wanted. It's actually just one of those inexpensive door mirrors you can get just about anywhere for about $10. We just removed it from the frame and double stick taped it directly to the wall. It fits in perfectly with the horizontal stripe we have going throughout our open living room area. We actually got this inspiration from a stay in one of the "Deluxe room 2" at the Ace Hotel in Seattle. They had a stripe of mirrors on a dark wood wall that we just loved. It really acts almost like another window and as Maxwell mentions, "... A horizontal mirror adds dramatic gesture and accentuates the horizontal movement of the dining table..." and "...Mirrors expand small rooms and allow the light to double its presence."
