Think outside the box and maximize your space. Just because you have bought a mirror which should be vertical, doesn’t mean you can’t hang it horizontally!

5. Secret Garden

Mirrors in a garden are a well-kept secret. The ability to reflect light and create depth need not only be reserved for interiors. Clever placement and styling can reinvigorate your garden as a magical Eden, whether your space is large or small.

Small gardens, terrace spaces or courtyards can often be uninspiring but with a little TLC and JLP magic you can step through your very own looking glass. Add to your wonderland by placing your outdoor mirrors in corners, not only can you increase the intensity of natural light which will reach previously shady areas, but you also expand the feeling of space. By blending your mirrors into the flowers and foliage of your garden you will achieve a more natural look.

A perhaps more challenging task is how to refresh a larger garden. With more space comes more choices, but also more opportunities. When it comes to mirrors, bigger is definitely better. One of the most mesmerizing garden features echoes nature in its fullest form. If you have any body of water in your garden, be it a water feature, stream, pond or even lake, place your mirrors in areas where they can reflect the beauty of the water throughout the rest of your garden. Sit back and enjoy your oasis, sight and sound.

Sophie’s 6 Top tips for placing #lovelymirrors

  1. If placed in a room with a window, make sure your mirror reflects part of or all of your window to achieve the best results. Not only will this increase the amount of light in the room but will increase the space’s depth also.
  2. Try to avoid putting your mirror where it will face a blank wall.
  3. In a windowless room, framed or panelled mirrors placed to reflect light in the room can give the illusion of a window.
  4. This may seem like a simple tip, but nevertheless people regularly make this mistake. When hanging a mirror above a mantelpiece, ensure you leave enough room between the mantelpiece and bottom of the mirror to be able to place things on the mantle piece. Not only do you have a little more space for beautiful accessories but this will allow your chosen pieces room to breathe.
  5. In a featureless room with no fireplace or mantelpiece, make your mirror the focal point. A real showstopper of a mirror can transform the feeling of a room. Check out JLP’s Entwined Lattice Silver Mirror for some inspiration.
  6. Nothing beats the satisfaction of having a full-length mirror in the house. An essential I would say. From getting ready for work in the morning to going out in the evening, a full-length mirror in a strategically placed room is a winner! The Colonial Grey Painted Hand Carved Hard Wood Mirror is a great addition to any bedroom or bathroom lacking a wow factor.
