How to Decorate Around a Mirror Over the Sofa

Mirrors play an important role in room design. A large mirror opens up a small space by making the room look larger. Mirrors of any size increase the apparent light in a room by reflecting light back into the room. When placed strategically behind a light source, mirrors illuminate areas that were formerly in the shadows. In addition, well-placed mirrors increase the decorating impact of focal points by making them visible from different angles. Mirrors reflect light. Take advantage of a mirror's reflecting ability to brighten the room by placing a pair of wall sconces on either side of the mirror behind the couch. Adjust swing-arm lamps so the mirror reflects light where you need it most. If the mirror is too stark and plain, swing the lamps in front of the mirror, breaking the outline of the mirror and softening its rectangular effect. Use a colored or beaded shade on your sconces to double the color impact on the room. To soften the impact of a large mirror, you can give it the feel of a window by adding curtains. Install a curtain rod over the mirror extending a foot beyond each side. If your mirror is shorter than your sofa, consider running the curtain rod a foot past each side of your sofa and hanging long, floor-length drapes to either side. Do not forget to add a valance that will hang low enough to cover the top edge of the mirror, completing the window feeling. If the mirror is a bit worn, consider adding a set of sheers or open lace panels to close completely over the mirror. Coordinate the curtains with the other windows in the room to give it a finished look. Run a narrow shelf under the full length of the mirror and place decorative items on it as you would a mantle over a fireplace. Before you consider this option, check that your couch is deep enough and the mirror is high enough to allow people to sit on the couch without hitting their head on the shelf. Decorative items that work especially well in front of mirrors are translucent bottles in various colors, tall candles and silk flowers, any of which would make good use of the mirror's reflected light. Rather than decorate on the wall next to a sofa mirror, place tall objects as side dressings to the sofa. Tall artificial trees, tall floor lamps, or large table lamps placed on side tables next to the couch will visually frame the mirror. Side dressings work best if your mirror has a decorative frame that you do not want to obscure. Because you do not have to install anything when decorating with floor and table lamps, changing the scenery is fast and painless. A mirror with pictures on each side is quite attractive. In a sense, you can create a picture wall with mirror in middle using photos from your favorite family adventures. Add framed pictures from any graduations, weddings or birthday celebrations. You can keep the photos symmetrical on either side, or hang them around the mirror forming a type of border.

Mirror Pond

Mirror Pond is an impoundment of the Deschutes River in Bend, in the U.S. state of Oregon. It is between Pacific Power's Bend Hydro dam and the Colorado dam, between RM 166 and 167. The pond is flanked by Drake, Harmon, Pageant, Brooks, Columbia, Miller's Landing, and McKay parks, as well as a number of buildings such as Pine Tavern and private homes. Some people mistakenly consider the Galveston (Tumalo) bridge the upper boundary of Mirror Pond; others call the portion of the lake between Galveston bridge and the Colorado dam "upper Mirror Pond".

Should I believe the mirror or the picture?

Go with the mirror. Taking better pics can take some time to perfect. Use your eyes to communicate to the camera and everything else will follow. Smile with confidence, but make sure it shows in your eyes first and foremost.

Mirror or camera? Which one should i trust?

omggg i feel the same way. some how in pics my face looks blotchy and my nose looks sharp and my eyes are dull. when i look in the mirror (usually) i have a nice clear complexion, sparkling eyes, and just overall pretty. i would say that you can not completely trust either, because the 3-D and real version of you is diff then a reflection or a frame captured my a camera. i would say the mirror is more reliable though
