How do you hang a mirror?
There are a number of places to effectively hang a mirror. Over a dressing table, it is positively expected. Make it count with a beautiful shape or a gorgeous finish.
Hang your mirror to relate to what it is hanging over. For a mirror over your dressing table, for example, hang it so that you can actually use it while seated. For a mirror over a console, make sure you hang so that it relates to the console and not to the ceiling.
Wherever you use a mirror, allow it to double your view of something beautiful that you love!

I love your blog! I wish everyone could see Alice Lawson’s room and what a wonderful job you did. Your sense of color made an incredible difference. Look forward to getting together for future projects.

Thank you! It was a pleasure to know how happy she was with her “new” room.
