Are you copping out with a mirror?
A mirror on the wall, used for hundreds of years. Perfect in a dressing room, in a bath, and over your bedroom chest-of-drawers. But, are you using a mirror somewhere else, only because it is not exactly wrong, or because you were afraid of making a decorating mistake with real art? Mirrors can never compete with real art when color and drama are needed in a room. Did a furious and heartbroken Rhett Butler throw his drink at the mirror? I think not.
