This week I’ve been working on a little mini makeover in the entryway. Later on in the week I’ll have a bigger “reveal” to show you, but I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to share one of my favorite decorating tips for instantly making a room feel bigger and brighter without any lighting or painting required…
… want to know how?
D E C O R A T I N G T I P :
Hang a mirror across from a window to bounce light around the room, making it feel both larger and brighter!
I moved a console table from my dining room into the entryway and decided to hang a simple round mirror on the wall above for two reasons:
a) I like having some kind of mirror in the entryway to make sure I don’t have puppy hair all over me before I walk out the door
b) placing a mirror in this spot across from a window bounces a ton of light back into the room, making the whole space feel bright, clean, and spacious.
This tip works great in smaller rooms with little to no natural light, but you can use this trick almost anywhere in your house. It’s such a simple concept, but never ceases to amaze me how adding a mirror can completely change the look and feel of a room.
