Mirrors - Stylish Alternatives

I love a great deal.  But the one thing I refuse to do is compromise on the style of a piece.  If I can't find an affordable alternative that truly gives me the same look, I would much rather save my money and get the real thing.  So, when I see options that do give me the same look for less, I must share them!

So, let's talk mirrors - first, they help brighten a room (if placed in the right spot).  They can add sparkle (which every room needs a bit of) and they can play up the style of a room.  

Rustic Mirror


The rustic feel of this mirror adds a ton of character to the space.  Note:  normally, I am not a fan of a mirror over a fireplace (you usually have to hang it so high that all it is reflecting is the ceiling).  But in the picture above, it works because it is opposite a window and reflects the outdoors. 

The pricey option:
$2,150.00

Here is a more affordable option(and I actually like it better than the more expensive one).

$425.00


Now we're really talking, this is more like it:


$295.00

And here's one for even less. OK, I will give you that it is round and not oval, but it is the same scale and roughly the same size and it's REAL mango wood.  So, I do think it can give you the same look in a space for a lot less. 

$169.00



High Glam Starburst Mirror

OK - I know that lots of people think that these are done (the trend is over), but I do still like the impact.  I admit it.  I love the Hollywood throw back feel of this style.  I can see a pair of these mirrors over demilune tables on either side of a doorway entering a dining room.  Or just one over a fireplace (like this).  



Here is the pricey version:


$850.00

And a better option.

$395.00

Getting better. I actually like the muted gold tones of this mirror and the shape more than the pricer option.  It feels more like an real antique.  One issue - It's 7" smaller than the first one, so it will not have the same impact as the larger mirror, but the price is right!

$299.00


This is the best option.  It is large like the most expensive one and has the best price!

$279.00

So, ALWAYS shop around.  For most items, you can get the look for a lot less!
