Large mirrors are generally seen hung over the fireplace or over the buffet in the dining room.  These add glamour and traditional style and are perfectly fine.  However, a collage of smaller mirrors with interesting shapes adds more pizzazz and updates a room for a more modern appeal.  Or simply hang smaller mirrors directly onto the larger ones for more impact.

Starburst, quatrefoil and tiled are popular mirror styles that enhance interiors with their distinctive shape and design.  Displayed in groupings, these mirrors form a focal point and waken up a room with brightness and character.

Remember the mirrored ceilings and mirrored canopies of water beds in the 1970’s?  Well, forget about that and focus on the modern mirrored wall that is chic and stylish.  Layer the look by placing other mirrors directly over them.  This provides a great sense of dimension and really opens up a space.
