  • Wall Mirrors in Modern Room Decor

    Mirrors have been a staple in the house for centuries now. They are perfect art replacements, they bring in extra natural light and can be beautiful architectural statement pieces. My favorite benefit of a mirror is that it visually makes a space look bigger and deeper. It tricks the eye into thinking that a room goes farther. Mirrors are perfect for small spaces and spaces that need extra light.

    The entryway above has been enlarged just by simply adding a big, natural mirror. The grey wood pops against the neutral walls and complements the amazing flooring.

    Round modern mirrors placed in a grouping make a wall seem larger. The metal mixed with the wooden furniture pieces create a good juxtaposition.

    These grand black mirrors are a perfect choice for this classic, yet minimal space. Ultrasophisticated large modern mirrors compliment classic molding and fireplaces perfectly.

    They also are a good addition for the modern chairs and tables.

    If you don’t have any metallic options already in your space, add some by finding a silver or gold mirror. Two gold mirrors add the perfect amount of bling to any space.

  • Organizing Your Closet: Get the Skeletons Out

    Let's face it: we spend the entire year shoving stuff in the closet. Re-giftables, donatables, just-before-guests-arrive-junkables. When organizing your closet, toss all these skeletons out and follow these three steps to a bright and clean new look for the new year. 

    1. Downsize...relentlessly

    If there isn't room for something, get rid of it. If there is room for something but you rarely use it, get rid of it. If you're even questioning something, get rid of it. It's that simple.

    2. Make Space...and stick to it

    Designate a space for everything. Follow the one-hand rule: if it takes two hands to either access or put something away, it's too difficult to reach. Your closet is likely overstuffed and will eventually fall into disorganization.

    3. Say Hello to the Bright Lights

    Everything looks better under the bright lights. So let's take them to the closet. For wide or deep closet spaces, add a modern rectangle chandelier for a luxurious feel.

    Think an organized closet isn't important? Consider this: it's where you brainstorm your outfit first thing in the morning. And it's possibly even the last light you turn off before turning in. Instead of creating a skeleton graveyard, follow these three simple steps and turn your closet into a cool, calm and collected space.
