reflecting on mirrors

So I have the beach photo over the mirrored credenza now instead of over the bed. I think it looks much less beachy; what do you think?


So now I need a mirror over the sofa. Well, I need a lot of things, but mirrors are tough. There are so many good ones out there and there are so many bad ones. You know I would love to have an Herve Van Der Straeten bronze one like the one Lazaro Rosa Violán has in his studio:


And Arteriors has made one! The Prescott. Turn it horizontally.  But this bad boy is still around $1200....


My other fave option is only $150 smackers on sale at Pier One right now. Love the octagon shape - but I am afraid it could be too feminine glam. The great thing about Pier One (love them!) is that you can return things within 30 days for cash or ANYTIME EVER for store credit. Like, you could use a mirror for five months and return it and exchange it!! Are you kidding me right now??


Need opinions - get on this.... oh, and there are only SIX people signed up for the giveaway (top left). Winner announced next Saturday...

I love mirrors above credenzas, but the beach print looks nice as well. The Prescott mirror is nothing short of awesome, but pretty pricey. The Pier One is a good substitute, but not the same style.
Is that a mirror on top of a mirror in the studio pic?

The photo over the credenza is dabomb! And that Prescott is making me giddy as hell! There must be a decent priced alternative.

You know I love it!!!

I know what you mean about the octagon. It's a fine line. I do love the shape though.

The Arteriors mirror is amazing!
