The HGTV Urban Oasis is located in Boston this year, and it features beautiful views of the city. However, it is TINY. I mean, 1,000 sq. feet tiny. So what did the designers turn to to create a feel that is spacious and chic in such a small footprint? Why, Antique Mirror, of course!
Right away, as you come into the space, the foyer is floor-to-ceiling antique mirror. This prevents one from a feeling of being closed off as your first impression upon entering. Instead, you see a reflection of yourself,…but without the high shine of a regular mirror that leads to confusing space perception. Dreamwalls Antique Mirror can be made in sizes up to 100 in. x 144 in., so large scale installations like this are perfect.
To your left is the powder room, but turn to your right and go into the kitchen, where more antique mirror is used for the backsplash. Designer Lindsay Pumpa was smart to use a mirrored backsplash opposite the large floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase a beautiful view. (Note: I think they put so many pictures on the backsplash to allow all the photography equipment a place to hide.)
What I love about antique mirror is the gentle, overall subtle pattern that allows a vintage feel without being distracting.
In the sitting area of the bedroom, antique mirror is used again,…this time as a small end table to keep the space light.

I’m so glad to see antique mirror being used more and more in residential spaces for an intimate feel that still brightens the space and opens it up visually. It’s a smart use of mirror that can instantly make a home more cozy.
