I'm a great fan of these very large French style mirrors that just 'lean' against the wall and don't have to try too hard to get themselves noticed. These beautifully ornate mirrors in the above photograph are from Laura Ashley. Try positioning one to reflect a special piece of furniture, perhaps a chaise longue or find a place to put it that allows the light from a window to bounce back into the room. These mirrors make perfect statement pieces and are a great talking point. Of course they are still very useful if you simply just want to look in the mirror!
