Across the high street in homeware stores are mirrors with belts as a frame surround, with buckle, to create an industrial modern look.

We love the clever but simple tutorial from School Of Decorating to make your own DIY better frame mirror.

It is made with just a few simple materials including a belt and a mirror picked up cheaply off the high street.

There is not much to say about this MUNK collective mirror, except to admire its simplicity and gorgeous design. We love it!

This Danish designed frame mirror gives a nod to the classic mirror you find at the barbers. The slim tray shelf is perfect for placing your bits and pieces with the mirror adding a different dimension to the items displayed on the shelf

We are loving the increased popularity of window style mirrors. We found this black industrial style example from cultfurniture.com, suited to most interiors.

Giving the illusion of space this large mirror not only works practically but also offers a structured design bringing interest to a room.

Although this mirror is for indoors you could put it in the garden and let it weather and age.

Following on from the beginning of this year Art deco inspired interiors are still big. Introducing this 1920s look into your home will bring glamour and opulence, wether a small corner or a whole room.

You can hint at this trend or go full on, but be careful not to over indulge as you don’t want it to look themed or staged. This look focuses mainly on two key areas, pattern and furniture, with bold gold designs set against black and rich blue backgrounds on wallpapers and art.

The furniture comes in the form of drinks trolleys and statement armchairs. A good place to start is with a classic round trolley with marble shelves, a design that mixes straight lines and circles, very much echoing the strong print designs of the Art Deco era.

Combine this with a statement chair – velvet is a must – with brass or gold legs and you will have the perfect start to the look. Keep the walls dark to create more drama with dark green, blues and of course black.

Accessories to consider would be classic angled mirrors and perhaps a quirky lamp influenced by the 1920s. As well as this you could continue the feel with soft furnishings like a fringed pillow [ pictured ].
