WHY ITS A MUST TO HAVE A RUSTIC MIRROR IN YOUR HOME

WHY ITS A MUST TO HAVE A RUSTIC MIRROR IN YOUR HOME
    

Its no secret over here at BHM HQ we are mirror obsessed. Mirror's introduce a style element in the home like no other. They offer the perfect blend of sophistication, character & charm. 

 

 

When styled the right way a mirror is not only decorative & aesthetically effective, it can trick the senses to make a space feel bigger & brighter than it is. Not many decor pieces can master that art.

DECORATIVE BUT FUNCTIONAL, VERSATILE BUT AMBIENT, EFFICIENT BUT STYLISH 

 

 

 

Mirrors are hands down our favourite pieces to style with. They are the favourite child, even though we claim to not play favourites. So here's the 411 on everything you need to know.

 

Mirrors bring grandeur to an open space, especially if you have high ceilings or bare walls. They are a perfect solution to open up a smaller space, welcoming natural light and bouncing reflections.

 

If you have a pretty view from a window or balcony make sure you are capturing that reflection. Its going to create a feeling of openness and bring the outside in. Rustic & weathered frames are perfect for this.

 

 

 

 

 

      Vintage Gate Mirror                     

 

Take this one for instance, its the perfect example of how this piece brings a sense of grandeur, bounces light and reflection.

 

 

This beauty was carved by hand in Rajasthan, India and is around 120 years old. It was an old door frame and we had it transformed into an oversized mirror. 

 

Now picture this space without that mirror.. see, mirrors are magic!

 

 

MIRROR MIRROR ON THE WALL, YOU'RE A BEAUTY, THAT IS ALL   

 

 


 

 

Alicia, at MyBurleightReno is the style queen, you can see here how she has styled one of our rustic mirrors to reflect a cosy & bright space.

 

The tones & textures of this frame are a purposeful & effective contrast but tie in perfectly with the space. Dreamy huh?

 

Now again, picture this space without the mirror. Can you see what I mean now?

 

 

 

GO BIG OR GO HOME

 

Jokes! Being home is the best.

 

Our Sundar (meaning beautiful in Hindi) Mirror range are stunning, they are made from old hand carved door frames and are over 2 metres tall. They take 3 people to move.. but minor detail.

 

 
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, mirrors are a must for smaller spaces, especially apartments or villa's. They bounce the light around the room making it seem deeper and wider.

 

We have a narrow entrance at our place and by introducing an oversized mirror its opened the space up, drawing the attention away from that feeling of confinement.

 

 

 

 

  

ITS ALL ABOUT THE AMBIENCE

 

Mirrors wear many hats (that sounds weird, a mirror wearing a hat?), they are also the perfect piece when used against a dark or wall papered wall. 
 
A reflective surface on a darker or accent wall will make the space pop and the contrast is a match made in mirror heaven.
 
Your home should always make you feel.... well at home, a place of zen. Adding some light fixtures and lamps next to your mirror will set an ambient tone and bring out the warm and fuzzies. 
 
 

 

LEAN ON ME

 

 

Leaning or wall mounted comes down to preference & space. If you have little ones around make sure they are secured. Patio bolts are perfect for oversized mirrors.

    Be sure to match a perfect frame that compliments your interior style, in a good way it will dominate the space in a perfectly subtle way.

       

     Mirrors can reflect and double almost the entire room and highlight every piece of furniture. Make sure that the space reflected is beautiful and in balance, you will nail your space of zen.
