Interiors: Mirror Collections




I wonder if maybe I have a touch of OCD with my strong inclination towards grouping and collections?  I like wall decor that pushes an idea, much like plate walls, mirror walls are a great way to display a collection of vintage/thrifted/or found pieces.  They needn't be framed or fancy; I like mirrors best when they have some age and wear on them. What do you think about these mirrored collections?
I searched through my archives and found three other posts on mirrors that you might like if you're looking for some wall decor inspiration:  oversized mirrors, unframed mirrors, any mirror will do

images: 1) the cottage log  2) haute design 3) this is glamorous

Funny, there is a Feng Shui thing that state, there should be a mirror for every face the dwells in the space but, not opposite...to not disorient the people in the place.

I do believe this is my new "thing".

Cheers!

Okay, so I am probablly the only one here but mirrors creep me out just a bit (do you remember the "Bloody Mary" rumor from gradeschool days?). A few are okay around the house (a girl has to check her hair and clothes) but a whole walll...creepy :)

hmm..too many mirrors might give me an inferiority complex on a bad hair day. plus if they break you have 7X bad luck.

LOL LOL LOL!! I'm guessing you don't have OCD, on any level. These are totally awesome. I have to say, that I LOVE the mirror walls. {more then the plates..ACK sorry!! don't hate me lol...err or throw a plate at me ;) } Especially love the idea of putting the picture frames in the front!! XOXOXOXOX

Really do like the look of the grouped mirrors... and actually the grouping of the plates too. Wish I was bold and committed enough to the idea to do it myself....

These are fantastic!! The last one especially! Mirrors are great for opening a room up, aren't they? Don't worry about your love of collections and groups - I think we all love these things us humans!
