Mirrored Walls

How do we feel about mirrored walls?

I recently saw this one and it caught my eye...I think I love how rich the furniture looks contrasted against the cool, glassy wall. Makes everything sparkly and warm:

Do you think a mirrored wall works, but only in certain a bright, colorful beachy condo where the mirrored wall reflects back the gorgeous ocean?

Or are they simply for bathrooms where mirror is right at home with tile and other hard surfaces?

OR, can they be right at home in "regular" spaces like a cozy living room, entry or our original bedroom photo?

If done well, I think a mirrored wall can work anywhere but it takes a great eye to make it look intentional and not tacky. I think all of these spaces pull it off.

So, what's your take?


  1. I have always loved mirrored walls! They do so much to reflect and give an illusion of a much larger space!!

  2. So timely. I'm about to have parts of my kitchen walls mirrored to reflect my garden. I think it should be like cooking outside. At night it will be a sparkly with all of my stainless cookware on display. Since I'm 64 and have no plans to move, I don't care about resale. I did read a post recently where a woman painted over her mirrored walls she hated them so much. I know this is a highly divisive issue.
