Alexis Nielsen Interiors

Hello, gorgeous!

I have a large mirror hanging on one of the walls in our living room. Every morning when I bring my 16 month old downstairs for breakfast, we pause by the mirror so she can wave at herself and say “Hi!” This wasn’t the reason I hung the mirror, but it’s super cute and I love it.

The real reason I hung the mirror was for light. We only have windows on one wall in our living room, and the natural light doesn’t reach into all the corners of the room. But by hanging a mirror on the wall opposite the windows I am able to reflect some more of that natural light into the room , brightening the space. It also helps the room to appear larger.

Of course a huge smile from my little peanut always helps to brighten my day, no matter the light.
