Going Round...

The galley kitchen in my tiny apartment is very dark. It sits in the crevice between my building and the one next door and basically looks out onto a brick wall. To add to that, I painted the small space a rich deep blue (Farrow & Ball Drawing Room).

Repainting aside, I've been looking for ways to lighten up the area. One idea I've been toying with is adding a round oversized mirror over the kitchen table. I believe that the shape will compliment my tulip table from Ikea and something dramatic against the blue will instantly become a focal point. I starting pulling some inspiration last night...

I am in love with this fantastic mirror against this gorgeous aqua wall. What drama!

 Something with a scalloped edge could be fun...

With high ceilings I could also stack two mirrors...

Gold or brass details could be interesting.

Wood looks infinitely dramatic against a lacquered wall.

A sunburst mirror could also add flare to the space.

A layered look could add some visual interest.

Do you use round mirrors in your space?
