Hi, I'm Faith Sheridan. And I'm here in the Seattle Design District today talking about one of the most important accessories that you can place in your home. And that is a wall mirror. Behind me is a beautiful wall mirror suitable for an entry. It's actually an antique but it could go just as easily in a modern contemporary home. Mirrors are an important accessory that you might consider in an entry, a dining room, or a powder room. In your entry they'd be large, to fill up the space. In the powder room, smaller. The other thing you want to keep in mind, which is very important, is what will the mirror see. In the powder room you know the mirror is going to see you or your guest. But in the entry what will it see? Will it be a staircase? Will it be your living room? Or dining room, whatever is opposite. Keep that in mind and then especially in the entry, build a composition of items much like you see on the table behind me. You might include flowers, a small lamp, candlesticks, a bowl, something important to you. I think it's important to splurge on a mirror if you can. It's such an important accessory. But if that is a budget buster there are some other ways that you can find a great mirror. Find an antique store. Or maybe go to some flea markets. Better yet check out the attic at your grandmother's or your mom's and see what you can find hanging around that you might salvage and place in your own home. So consider a mirror as an essential ingredient of your decorating plan. I'm Faith Sheridan. And I've enjoyed talking to you about mirrors.
