Seeing Double

Seeing Double

Perfect symmetry may have received its fair share of bashing from the design community over the past few years, but mirrors seem to be the happy exception—they continue to pop up in pairs all over the place!

I think that it's hard to go wrong with too many mirrors, and two side by side ones only reinforce the illusion of light and spaciousness.
•1., 2., 3 Flanking a doorway, a pair of mirrors adds grandeur to an entrance.
• 4. Or they can read as additional windows.
•5., 6. Two photographer's takes on David Weiss and Martina Arfwidson's beautiful New York home. One dark framed mirror would be striking enough against the spare whites and greens defining the Swedish inspired home, but two is pure drama.

Do you like the look?
