Things We Love: Mirrors in Kitchens

Cultivate Kitchens

When we think of mirrors, bathrooms are usually the first room that leaps to mind.
French = gray
Bathrooms are, after all, where we are most likely to need to see ourselves.

But, of all the rooms in our house, the kitchen is one of the ones that we prefer to be the lightest, brightest and to feel the most open.

And what is better at achieving those goals than a mirror?
Rachel Bishop Design
Mirrors add instant height and size to cozy kitchens, making them feel much larger than the blueprint dictates.
Spartan Journal
John B Murray Architect
A window seems natural over the sink, but, if you’re lacking one, why not add a mirror instead? It’s a great way to add light — no sledge hammer required.

Kitchen mirrors make unique and gorgeous back splashes.

Nicety Journal
If the idea of one, large mirror doesn’t seem right for your kitchen, piecing together squares of antique mirrors adds charm and appeal. 
Most of all, mirrors are a chic decorative touch to be used in lieu of a painting or print. A starburst adds a hint of glamour and elegance to every other room. Why not the kitchen?

Top Ten: Mirrors



Gift Card Giveway!

 Today’s the big day, everyone! One of our very lucky friends is going to win a $100 gift card for the fixture of their choice at the fabulous Rejuvenation. 

 We wish we could show you the gorgeously rejuvenated hallway and adjacent rooms where we hung our precious fixture. Only, you know when nine months of a renovation have gone off without a hitch, that happens to be the exact time that: Things. Fall. Apart. In the grand scheme, it isn’t that serious, but the tile in the bathroom was wrong. (On so, so many levels!) So the entire suite had to be put on hold because the tear-out created dust, dust, dust. And, as we all know, dust and art don’t mix well. And… the electricity was off so that no one got electrocuted during sconce installation.

At any rate, finished space or no, we adore the fixture there. It’s the perfect mix of old-world feel with a modern twist — and just a touch of black! The brushed nickel top blends beautifully with the bathroom fixtures. And, don’t worry, when the doors are replaced and the second-floor porch finished, we will have corresponding knobs!

 So, here’s what we’d do with ours… You know, if we were eligible. We love these galvanized planters. So chic!
 There’s no such thing as enough when it comes to coffee table books.
 The ’70s have never been cooler.
 We love the yacht feel of this lamp!

 This end table would spruce any look.
 Love. Love. Love.

An essential for those hand-crafted summer cocktails. Don’t forget to enter, and good luck, everyone! Gift card or no, we hope each of your days is a winner!

mirrors are not only essential in any dressing space

but also add light and interest to the doors in spaces that, otherwise, could be just a bit bland.

to the stylishly simple

there’s a mirrored door just perfect for every space. We hope you all had a wonderful holiday and are enjoying this week!


Lean on me…

A mirror leaned up against a wall can serve a variety of wonderful purposes: it makes a room look bigger, doesn’t create any extra holes in the plaster, and, best of all, makes you look thinner! We love these examples of how a leaning mirror can be oh-so-chic and might even implement the suggestion ourselves to make it seem like those holiday pounds never happened… Happy Monday!
