Mirror Round-Up

It's no secret that Emily and I love mirrors. I think one in every room is totally appropriate!

Can I just say I am so excited about the direction that Pottery Barn is going! Their mirrors have been so drab to me in the past, and in general I'm really picky about the big chain store mirrors (they tend to be very cookie cutter & everyone has them). The problem is a big, gold leaf, antique mirror can really set you back some $$$ so if budget is an issue I think this is a good option. Only $299 for a 34" x 55" mirror, not bad!

One more from Pottery Barn, I LOVE it. Really, you should check out the other great mirrors on their website, I'm not going to post them all but there are some great new products.

Speaking of big box retailers this mirror hails from Lamps Plus. For $199 each, do a pair over a two bowl bathroom vanity.

I really do love a good French Trumeau mirror, now this one from Ainsworth-Noah on 1st Dibs costs $18,500. I have seen in various antiques stores and shops reproduction or new mirrors faux finished to look old for a fraction of the price (which would be much more budget conscious) but a good one can be $900+.

I have yet to see this Ethan Allen mirror in person, but I sure have tried (especially since this was the "similar to shown" mirror recommended by Domino in the spread about Drew Barrymore's office).

Cute pair of 50's sunburst Mirrors from Ebay.

Louis Starburst Silver Leaf Mirror by Worlds Away.

Quirky Black and White Shine Home Mirror.

Mirrors from one of my favorite online sources for drooling...Mecox Gardens. I just couldn't help myself!

** Sorry for all the techincal difficulties***

I really like the one with the silver finish on the frame. Mirrors have been drab the past few seasons.

What about Restoration Hardware? They have a lot of nice mirrors lately.

I love old mirrors. Nothing like a great mirror to finish off a room :)
