Mirrored Mystique

As we begin designing our own line of customizable mirrored tiles and panels, naturally we’ve been obsessing over mirrors in interiors. Although we haven’t seen anything like what we are cooking up in the studio, we have been drooling over some stellar examples of interiors with antique mirrored walls by some of our favorite designers. Whether the real old deal or newly minted, antique mirrored tiles add not only undeniable glamour, but also a touch of nostalgia and romance to the equation. Coupled with the fact that mirrored walls bring light, depth and visual variation to a space, it’s no wonder that this classic decor tactic has made a big come back.

This vignette is grounded in symmetry and saved by asymmetry. From the different height objects to the organic and unpredictable pattern of the antiqued mirror tiles, tho is one example we couldn't leave out. However, it's also one of those annoying on-line finds where we couldn't find the original source or designer. If you know, we'd love to hear from you so that we might give them credit where credit is due! Photo via Haus Design Blog
