9. LightingIf there is one item that has an immediate impact on the mood of a new space it’s the lighting. Replacing pendants for new light fittings and incorporating side lamps in your room will allow you to recreate the feeling of a familiar space… or a totally new one.Shining the Light on Good Lighting Design
Reflect on mirrored glitz Mirrored surfaces, reminiscent of Hollywood and the silver screen, were in vogue in the 1930s and have endured in Hollywood Regency decor. For inspiration, think back to the Art Deco era and don’t limit yourself to traditional mirrors. Hang a sparkly mirror chandelier pendant or install reflective wall sconces. GET THE LOOK FOR LESS: Save your pennies and buy one mirrored statement piece of furniture, be it a sideboard, buffet or coffee table, or even scatter a few mirrored accessories around to channel a bit of Old Hollywood.
3. Fill the alcoves Mirror tiles fitted into the alcoves on either side of this fireplace give a compact living space a gloss of elegance and a roomier feel. A further genius touch is the symmetrical arrangement of the seating, so that it’s perfectly aligned to create long reflections in each alcove. These mirror tiles have a soft, antiqued finish, providing a gentler, warmer feel than a single piece of super-shiny mirrored glass.
