NEWLYWED'S DECORATING TIP:
Recently married and first time home buyers are a happy group. They like to look at themselves. Their vision is hopeful and expansive. Having the right type of mirrors at home can be highly effective.
MIRRORS can be divided into two types: RECESSIVE and Decorative. When they are at their most creative is when they are recessive. That is, when their presence is so subtle as to not even know they exist. What these so-called blind mirrors do is to expand space in without you knowing it - it's magical. For instance, when placed in a narrow hallway, a recessive mirror will make the hallway look twice as wide. In addition to opening up a space, these type of mirrors reflect a lot of light. Placed at either across from or at an angle near a window, the recessive mirror opens up the view by reflecting the landscape beyond. These mirrors are not self-conscious, like their cousins, but rather they seem to disappear. So, when built in to cabinetry, you get double the space - it's something for nothing, so to speak. The recessive mirror really captures the inside of the room so magically.
