You are probably familiar with, Mirror Mirror on the wall – a famous quote from the Snow White movie, but with interior design, you can use mirrors on almost any surface – wall, ceiling, floor and even furniture items.
I like that mirror on a wall gives you a broader perspective of an interior space, as you tend to see things more vividly. Mirrors help you to create a sense of more space and their use as an interior design element is making a big comeback. The use of mirror in your space, however small or large will give you an impression that you have an even larger space to work with. In recent times, the design of mirrors have become more decorative using a combination of shapes, colors and patterns. As crazy as it sounds, lining a bedroom ceiling with mirror helps to create a sense of intimacy between the couple. Looking up into a mirrored ceiling and seeing each other’s reflection is a healthy reminder that you are in that moment together.
In hotel lobbies, hallways and other public spaces, you can do away with regular shaped mirrors and try something more sophisticated. Furthermore, you can revive dark entrance ways, porch areas and bathroom spaces by making the entire ceiling mirrored, such that, when the light is turned on, the mirror helps to spread the light and brighten the otherwise dull room.
Below is an example of a black and white beat mirror designed by Pietro Russo, with deliberately uneven proportions of handcrafted pieces.

MIRRORS have become my favorite design element for interior spaces.
