Our Favourite Large Mirrors

At VintageVibe we have a gorgeous selection of large mirrors. A large mirror will add depth and light to your space. They can be hung in any room in the house; from the bathroom to your entrance hall. Here are VintageVibe’s FIVE favourite large mirrors with some useful mirror hanging tips.

1. Shirley Mirror

Shirley Leaner Mirror

This luxury vintage style mirror stands over 6ft tall with beautiful crested detail. This mirror can be hung or leant against the wall. I think this mirror would look fab in my living room next to my cosy sofa. Leaner mirrors add a casual but sophisticated feel. The silver frame has been aged to create a shabby chic look, perfect to create a vintage rustic style in your home.

Quote: “I’ve leaned a massive, over-scale mirror against the wall of my bedroom, as I do in so many houses. It’s also more casual and interesting to lean something than to hang it. Once a mirror is hung, it’s isolated on the wall. But when it leans, the floor runs right into the glass.” Vicente Wolf, Interior Designer

This mirror is MASSIVE! We have one in the entrance hall of our family home, and it always attracts comments from visitors.  This stunning mirror with hand cast metal frame has beautiful detail on the bevelled panels. This mirror is popular with shop and business owners, as it creates a feeling of grandeur in your hallway.

Feng Shui Tip: Hang a mirror near your entryway, both to activate the Water element as well as to give you a positive glimpse of yourself on your way out the door.

3. Ashbury Mirror

The Ashbury mirror is ideal for rooms with little or no natural light as it creates the effect of a window. Hang or lean in your kitchen or dining room to add light to your space.

Top tip: In a boxy room, a mirror can really play with and enhance proportions. Place the mirror where it will reflect a white wall for plenty of light, add the illusion of extra space, but also help the room look less square than it is.

4. Mercure Mirror

This glamourous mirror will look gorgeous in your bedroom or boudoir. The stunning frame of this mirror, with it’s intricate leaf detail, is finished in antique silver with a touch of bronze. This cheval mirror is popular with fashion and wedding boutiques as it is perfect for a changing room!

Quote:  For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something. Steve Jobs

5. Geneva Venetian Mirror

This simple venetian mirror is a ‘no fuss’ way to add a mirror to your home. It can be hung portrait or landscape. It would look fantastic hung lengthways over a commanding sofa or sideboard. Or hang it portrait behind a door in the bathroom or bedroom, if space is limited.

Fact: In 16th century Italy, artisans expertly created Venetian mirrors for royalty and noblemen.  At that time, they were extremely expensive and rare.

Which is your favourite large mirror? Where will you hang yours?
