It's no secret that decorating with mirrors makes a small space feel bigger. My mom gave me this gorgeous vintage mirror for my birthday but I thought I'd do a round-up of some favorites for anyone else who might be on the hunt!

I'm keeping the white walls in my apartment (seriously I would dread painting them back afterwards...!) so I love that my mirror blends in but brings in some much-needed architectural detail. And I'm so excited for the leather strap mirror to arrive — I haven't figured out a spot for it just yet (maybe on my bookshelf somehow?) but I'm already smitten. Have you used mirrors to make your space feel larger? Any special tips or tricks? I'm all ears!

Keep up with Design Darling

if possible, hang a mirror opposit a window as it will reflect even more natural light into the room xx

My apartment is great, but the bedroom is tucked in the back with NO WINDOWS - which is fine if you want to sleep in, but it's a bit of a cave. I put a big mirror over the bed, facing the door, and it's made SUCH a difference in opening the space up!

Might have to switch it out for one of these beauties, though... ;)

They totally make your space feel bigger! I learned a tip that might help- always put mirrors in groups of three! It works for my small space :) Have a wonderful day!

It's also fun to experiment with mirrored and glass furniture! There are some great vintage finds out there that will help a small apartment feel more airy.

I have a mirror in every room - here's to small apartments and fooling yourself into thinking it's bigger than it is! I love that NM mirror though! The bamboo is so beautiful!

I love that mirror with the leather strap! What a gem. I came across this on Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/pin/75857574945596363/
Maybe it could work for your setup?

Hope you're having fun with all the decorating! By far the best part about moving.

Excellent information and facts. Only real difficulty I was basically receiving was viewing the pics. No idea exactly why.

I agree, for the most part, but don’t you feel as if the issue is more complex than that?
