{through the looking glass}

Ever since the new romantic post, which featured an oversized mirror leaning against a wall, have been taken with the dramatic statement it makes, and how it opens up a room and adds light.

Thanks, Sarah! I completely agree and just realized that my post on Jacqueline Appel also uses an oversized mirror in her living room. I'm going to keep an eye out for large mirrors on my next antiquing trip.

Thanks laurab! Actually, a reader pointed out that Restoration Hardware has one similar to the one featured in my the new romantic post post so someday could be sooner than you think :)

Thanks so much for visiting and for the lovely comments, paloma!

Your lifestyle or taste determines what the focal point of your living area is. If you have a fireplace, you can rearrange your furniture around it. Or if you have a piano, and this is the focal point of your living area, your furniture could be set around it. When rearranging your furniture, also consider traffic in your Living Room Decoration area. It is always good to arrange furniture in off-square angles. This makes the room warmer and more casual. http://living-room-decoration.blogspot.com
