Home Living : September 22nd 2009
2 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, September 22, 2009 Magical mirrors HOMELIVING Past and present Sally Beresford Antiques dealer and table designer WITH spring here we have changes in the light, with days lengtheningand brightening our homes. Capturing the potentialoflight and making it work for you is possible through many methods and devices. One of which I recommend is exploiting the magical properties of mirrors and mirrored surfaces. As a designer, I have always enjoyed the challenge of introducingan architectural element which becomes part of a space, and mirrors have the quality of beingboth visible and invisible. In the case of a stand-alone mirror with a decorative or distinctive frame, the focus is very much on the piece. This can be the missing link in a room. The subtlety of a mirrored surface creates an overall effect that tricks the eye into a feeling of space being multiplied and expanded. I recommend using panels of aged mirror to create aglamorous result, particularly in a modern interior. Where there is no window an arched mirror can create a ''view'' and a sense of another room beyond. When I'm in FranceIsearch tirelessly for old metal windows which are perfect for converting to mirrors. Customised multi-panelled mirrors using aged glass can bemade to your specifications. Aged glass is atmospheric, warmingand timeless. Addinganother dimension to the garden with a mirror creates an illusion: more light reflected, more space created and the opportunity to reflect a key feature. Mirrors take on a weathered patina outdoors and the fuss over keeping them clean disappears.
