Friday Finds: Elegant Wall Mirrors that Create an Impact

Elegant Wall Mirrors | Uttermost Modena Oversized Wall Mirror

Mirror, mirror… on the wall… who has the most elegant wall mirrors of them all?

Elegant Wall Mirrors, quite literally, reflect your personal style and decor aesthetic. The right wall mirror in the right spot (or the wrong wall mirror in the wrong spot) can make or break your overall decor.

Wall mirrors come in all shapes, sizes, and styles.  Here, we are focusing on elegant wall mirrors, especially those with a dramatic enough of a flare to create a stunning visual impact.

However, in my opinion, an elegant wall mirror does not have to be old fashioned.  There are several classifications of “elegance” in today’s modern decor marketplace, and today we will explore 5 of them… as they relate to wall mirrors.

Classically Elegant Wall Mirrors

When you picture a person as being from “Old Money”, you can probably imagine them standing in front of a mirror like one of these.

Dramatic flourishes of carved birch frame a generous expanse of mirrored glass, creating a piece that would look right at home in a Hapsburg palace. You don’t need a title or a powdered wig, however, to appreciate this piece. Just a great sense of style and a room that welcomes traditional influences.

Another classic example of elegance in mirror form, this piece is truly lovely. These Classically Elegant wall mirrors reflect a certain kind of design style and opulence that can only be properly reflected (pun intended) in an elegant piece like these.


Understated Elegance Wall Mirrors

While retaining their overall elegance, these wall mirrors take a step back from the opulent edge and tend to lean more toward an understated elegance. The designs can still be stunningly beautiful, but they do tend to be a touch subtler.

They are the kinds of pieces you would not be surprised to find inside a well decorated Manor Home.
