Mirror, Mirror On The... Floor

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Believe it or not I haven't had a single mirror at home where I can see my whole self for over eight years now [the time I've been living in this house]. Imagine, me, who's so coquettish and who doesn't miss the opportunity of checking my image in any reflective surface! The truth is that I ended up getting used to the fact of not having a mirror in the closet [the temporary situation resulted in a longer awaiting than I could have ever imagined] and to the fact of seeing myself only from the waist up, though I must recognize that it doesn´t translate onto a very accurate and full vision of the outfit and it probably gave me more headhaches than needed. I have been looking for a floor mirror for a long time now, since it would easily solve my problem besides making a statement in my bedroom. It conveys a kind of magical feel, visually expands the place, adding depth and width, beauty and brightness to the space where we place it[becoming instantly liven up] leaning against a wall or simply resting on the floor.Besides its usefulness, it has the potentiality of decorating your house conveying it a rich finish, adorning the decor of your house with a beautiful sense of refinement.It's like someone once said: "Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art."

  5. Well...eu tive o mesmo problema quando mudei, não de casa, mas sim de roupeiro. Deixei de ter o comum armário, para ter um muito maior, embutido e sem espelho. E eu sou tal e qual, meio esquisitinha e fico sempre à procura da peça ideal, da solução perfeita (designers!!!).
    Sabia que precisava de um espelho que me desse a visão integral mas não queria nada pendurado ou apenas encostado e portanto a solução a que eu cheguei foi de que o espaço entre a cabeceira da cama e a porta do roupeiro, tinha a medida ideal para eu colocar um espelho com essa mesma largura e com a altura total do pé direito. Sim, vais desde o chão até ao tecto, o que para além de conseguir ver os meus 1,60m na perfeição, ainda consegui dar uma maior amplitude a uma parte do quarto.
    Depois se quiseres mostro fotografias, caso queiras aproveitar a ideia :)

  39. Adoro espelhos, principalmente os vintage. Ando agora mesmo a mobilar e a decorar a casa e estou à espera que o meu pai me traga um espelho antigo que era da minha avó. Vai ficar giríssimo. Vou ver se depois coloco no meu blog. Obrigada pela inspiração. :)

  45. My husband and I have been looking for a floor mirror as well for a long time now! We saw one recently in a store in Shanghai with a wooden frame and it was awesome but very expensive! Such beautiful pictures!! Love the mirror in the walk-in closet and the white rectangular one by the bedroom door. :)
