I ran across this photo a few months back and it really intrigued me. At first glance I saw two corner windows. Looking again I noticed one window was creatively a mirror. I love how the mirror reflects the window and vice versa. How cleaver. Well what do you do when you run across something so cleverly fantastic? Copy!
I put my mirror a bit higher than the first photo because before we know it there will be a little guy getting his sticky fingers all over everything, and I can't wait ;)
Before the mirror, I had nothing in that corner. I now feel like each side of the hallway arch speak to each other and look balanced without looking two similar. The mirror also bounces light around which is nice.
I added an Ethiopian basket above the mirror to create a little vignette and add some warmth and texture to my new white walls. The adoption agency gifted us the basket when we were put on the list as a "Family in waiting." It is very dear to me.
I look forward to sharing the progress of the living room. Thank you to all who left comments about the white walls. I appreciated all the support and great ideas. I love feedback!
