This is a love letter to mirrors. They transform our homes, making our spaces feel brighter, and to the delight of someone like myself living in an NYC studio — larger. Mirrors have more power than we often give them credit for. But not all are created equal. These days, we can find mirrors for cheap — suspiciously cheap. Sometimes when things sound too good to be true, they are, and that is definitely the case with low-quality looking glasses. They're akin to snapping a photo on an iPhone 4 — you can still see yourself, but the resolution is nowhere near as crisp. So what's the equivalent of the latest iPhone? Enter: Pottery Barn mirrors.

Are they the least expensive? No — despite some sweet deals from the ongoing Pottery Barn sale, I can't honestly claim that you won’t find a lower price elsewhere. But what I can say is that you get what you pay for. Pottery Barn offers high-quality mirrors that won’t distort your reflection, crafted from thick glass that won’t shatter easily, and, perhaps most importantly, are beautiful. But if you’re familiar with Pottery Barn, you already knew the latter.

'A single mirror has the potential to revolutionize a space,' says interior designer Nina Lichtenstein — so it’s crucial to choose wisely. 'By cleverly reflecting light and expanding visual boundaries, mirrors create an illusion of depth and openness, instantly transforming even the most modest rooms. Placed strategically, a mirror can brighten dark corners, amplify natural light, and add a sense of airiness and sophistication to any interior.' In a word, Nina says that a high-quality mirror is ‘indispensable’ for crafting stunning interiors. Sold yet?

How should I style my Pottery Barn mirror?

A loaded question! Mirror styling is crucial, but also a little tricky since there is no singular answer. Where you should place your mirror depends on your space and your goals within it. To help guide us, Nina offers some insight.

If you're looking to create a focal point, ‘Hang a mirror above a mantelpiece or console table to anchor the space and draw attention.’ And place it strategically — near ‘light sources to amplify brightness and distribute light evenly.’

When it comes to pairing mirrors with other mirrors, Nina advises mixing and matching shapes. Don’t be afraid to experiment with round, rectangular, or oval mirrors — the world is your oyster! Doing so adds ample ‘visual interest and contrast,’ explains the designer.

And most importantly, think about the mirror’s reflection, place it near eye-catching architectural details, artwork, or statement pieces to amplify their beauty. This way, the mirror works in harmony with the rest of your space.

Whether you opted for a mantle, floor, or accent mirror, these tips will ensure they look as gorgeous as possible.
