Entrance mirror or how to decorate your entrance? This is the first room you enter when entering your own home or someone else’s home. The entrance is the mirror of the style and taste of the one who lives there. It’s the face of everything inside that follows. The mirror you choose to put on it must guide or follow the adopted style, it’s up to you.
Entrance mirror: the design object that guides or follows the style of its own home
The mirror, this object whose polished surface reflects the image of the person standing in front of it, is an essential main decorative accessory. It has a very long history, as long as a human desire to see what he looks like and to look at himself regularly. He will have a long future because man can never do without.
Entrance mirror: which frame will accompany the mirror ?
For the entryway mirror and any other mirror in the home, the frame is one of the most important elements accompanying the mirror. The frame brings the style of the mirror. Rather, it is he who guides or follows the design of the entire interior, unless the mirror has no frame, which can happen often. We will see how and why later.
Entrance mirror having the mirror frame
Some mirrors have frames that are an extension of the mirror itself. These are some Venetian mirrors or those imitating them. The frame being in relief and having additional patterns or elements, does not reflect the image perfectly or, on the contrary, reflects it on all its surfaces so as to create multiple images.
Entrance mirror frame suitable for all styles
The majestic classic frame is suitable for almost any style. This gilded carved wooden frame with flowers and other flourishes dressing the entrance mirror gives the style of the whole room. Such an imposing siding always guides and never follows the interior design.
Entrance mirror and exquisite metal frame
Some mirrors have very original frames. This one in the image below represents a metallic work reminiscent of the rays of the sun. In a room like the entrance which rarely has windows, if not never, a mirror framed in such a way seems to light up the interior..
Better yet, the mirror is the sun itself! Thanks to the light it reflects, this object can actually shine. As for the mirror under the shelf, which is still made of glass, it changes the proportions of the room and creates an optical illusion. The tiling chosen for the floor has something to do with it too.
This mirror, a real decorative object, with its original touch that it brings, dresses the bare wall. Its aluminum or silver plastic frame imitating metal, makes the mirror a light object and easy to hang.
Baroque entrance mirror with silver wooden frame
This frame with imposing ornament fits perfectly into a modern style thanks to its silver color. It goes wonderfully with the baroque style table in silver wood. And goes perfectly with the ultra modern semi-spherical elements accompanying the lamps flanking the mirror.
Another baroque mirror with a silver wood frame and richly ornamented silver wood base cabinet decorates the entrance shown in the image below. This mirror adopting the style of the one often pictured in the children’s tale Snow White imposes a rich and pompous style.
To a lesser extent because of its natural color, the carved wooden frame imitating the Baroque style, with the accompanying furniture, dress the khaki-colored entrance wall well. A few other decorative items, as well as a small flowerpot, add a decorative touch to the place.
Entrance mirror with traditional carved wooden frame
The frame of the wooden mirror can be worked so that it begins to imitate bronze. The lighter wood color on the darker colored wood perfectly creates this illusion. The goal is to provide a spectacular effect while keeping the traditional profile.
Venetian entrance mirror
In the photo shown below, you see two mirrors. The first is on the right in the photo. It is framed in worked wood and is reminiscent of places of prayer accommodated at the side of the roads or in the streets of the cities on which a statuette of the Virgin Mary and a candle are arranged. The second, hanging a little further on, at the back, next to the white door, is a Venetian mirror. Look at the work of the master glassmakers, the purity and shine of the ice !
Entrance mirror: the choice in a classic luxury interior
An interior with a very high, classic, luxury ceiling, decorated in this way, can only integrate luxurious decorative objects. Large mirrors with golden frames are the mirrors that may be suitable in such a place. The mirror entered to a lesser degree than the one dominating the room from the fireplace.
Modern and chic entrance mirror
Wood is the still preferred material for framing mirrors. Classic, chic, modern, rustic, he knows how to make all styles. In solid wood, in pallets, polished, worked, carved, it adapts to everything. Here is a modern and chic wooden entrance mirror frame. A pretty bouquet of orchids planted in a pot embellishes the place.
To be chic, the frame can be made of metal. Pretty metal ornaments adorn this exquisite mirror decorating this long entrance, hallway type, ending in another huge mirror framed by simple white wooden rods.
The gilded French ornaments only lightly adorn the simple black frame of this rectangular mirror adorning the entrance decorated with some valuables. Like the interior design, featuring new and old, the entrance mirror frame combines elements of the glorious past and the new.
Entrance mirror with modern frame
The modern setting is simplistic. This can have advantages but also disadvantages for interior designers. The disadvantages first! The main disadvantage is that a mirror with a modern frame may not fit in every type of interior. The interior should be modern, not pompous, even simplistic. The advantage is that a modern mirror can provide an additional practical touch, allowing you not only to situate yourself in the news as any mirror can, but also as a decorative object of its time..
The frame of this entrance mirror is very simple but the black frame with an oval outline adds an extra dimension to the white wall. The oval and trapezoidal legs of the bench in black go well together because they complement each other. The seat of the rectangular bench goes well with the basket in which a flowerpot is placed because they both have the same color.
A hall mirror can go perfectly with the front door or with other decorative items placed around it. Thus, this decorative rug dominated by the mirror is very well chosen because it goes wonderfully with the mirror, the lamp on the floor and the parquet..
The mirror frame, the front door and the drawer unit are made of wood in the same color. The shade of the wood of the parquet and the shade of the lamp hanging from the ceiling is a little lighter. The wood and the white paint make this interior a clean and pleasant place.
Frameless entrance mirror
The modern mirror can be hung on the wall without being framed. Thus, it is no longer a decorative object but a necessary functional object.
When the mirror is not decorating, other pieces of furniture to which the mirror is attached or that it accompanies give the place a tidy, cozy and pleasant appearance. A vase can change the look of a room a lot. The table can also do this. A rug can add a cozy touch, as can anything made of fabric..
If the cozy effect is not wanted, just a luxurious atmosphere, then you should bet on anything more glamorous. The entrance mirror can occupy an entire wall. The white marble floor will not be covered with any carpet. Real crystal chandeliers will reflect in the mirror.
Minimalism follows the idea of glamor and luxury. Everything must be clean: the entire design. This means that all objects must meet criteria of shape and material. The arrangement of objects decorating the interior also plays an important role.
Entrance mirror in a retro style interior
Retro style is the style that people love. An entryway mirror of this style is a mirror with a wooden frame in an unconventional geometric shape. It reflects several vintage objects without which the retro style cannot be complete.
The retro-style entrance mirror can embellish a classic interior decorated with statuettes and various trinkets. The piece of furniture on which vintage or classic objects are stored must have the same style as the mirror. Thus, the entrance will have a homogeneous appearance.
