Design Scout: Mirror, Mirror

Mirrors are an easy, adorable way to give the illusion of more space in a tiny room. Here are some pretty (and practical!) options.

Boom Mirror Shelf With Vase
The simple, clean lines of this piece are guaranteed to work with any decor scheme, and we love the idea of rotating blooms according to the season. The mirror can be hung on wall or left free-standing on a dresser.  
$95 at 2modern.com


Areaware Antlers Mirror
Add a laugh to your last-minute lipstick check with this quirky piece. Similar styles include a pearl necklace mirror and one with a pirate motif.

Display-It Storage Mirror
This full-length, rotating looking glass has cubbies for extra storage, hooks for hanging coats, and a built-in corkboard for posting all sorts of reminders. Kind of like the perfect dressing valet, no? If the multi-functionality doesn’t get you, the sale will—the black version of this ingenious piece can be had for $200 off the original price.
$399 to $599 at pbteen.com

Mosh Multi Mirror
What’s not to love about this quirky, almost-chaotic jumble of lacquered wood frames? This piece is perfect for anyone who believes a home isn’t truly lived in without a little bit of clutter.  
$52.50 at umbra.com

Lily Fleur Mirror
Urban Outfitters consistently features spot-on combinations of classic shapes and contemporary updates. Take this portrait mirror, for example: the shape and detailing are practically Victorian, but the neon-blue wash makes it a good pick for the under-30 set.   
$38 at urbanoutfitters.com

Mosaic Mirror
The gold plating and reflective tiles on this suprisingly versatile piece adds a touch of ethnic flair to any bed or living room. If you’re ready to invest in home design, consider this a piece that will stick with you for years to come.
$375— plus $75 shipping and handling—at horchow.com
