home: trend [ mirrors ]
Gone are the days when you simply put a mirror up in your bathroom, bedroom or hallway just for it’s practical purpose. Mirrors in the home now are seen as design statements and decorative objects.
The variety of designs available in stores and online offer you a great selection to choose from.
We’ve picked some of the popular on trend styles and our favourites.
One of the biggest trends this year is bringing mixed metal finishes on mirror frames – copper, brass and gold – often with a strong industrial feel. Rounded edge square and rectangular mirrors work great in achieving this look.
Another popular choice is the round hanging mirror. Get the simple scandinavian feel with the mix of wood and leather.

Bring colour and texture into your room with a bright frame or subtle blocks of metallic and pastels. The popular geometric trend continues to grow and works really well in mirrors – we love the ferm living wonder mirror, combining a hexagonal design with different woods, doubling up as a shelf for displaying objects.
Mirrors don’t always need to be flat either. Go bold with a 3D inspired design, bringing a strong focal point to a living room or bedroom.

Get a vintage look with a hanging art deco inspired mirror. Rather than going for a modern feel with leather or rope hanging element, pick a thin delicate chain. This combined with a more ornate shape will give a strong decorative statement.
For a bigger statement go for a retro sunburst mirror. This popular mid century design is having a resurgence in homes and works really well in a modern inspired room. The gold or brass finish sits really well with dark walls of grey or navy.
With wooden framed mirrors avoid light colours and opt for dark wood veneers like walnut or mango.
