A large black console table with white drawers sits beneath a large square mirror in this sleek entry space. Contemporary sconce lights provide soft lighting for a metallic gray ceiling, which continues to the adjacent stairwell area.
"Mercury glass is pretty inexpensive. A collection on a mantel looks just as well as doing pairs," says Atlanta interior designer Lance Jackson, co-founder and creative director of Parker Kennedy Living. Mercury glass also works year-round and fits nicely with holiday decor, whether your palette is red and green, or another choice. For your collection of combine mercury glass you pick up from antique stores, estate sales and yard sales with new pieces from home discount stores.
The subtle shifting in the square mirrors adds dimension and texture to what is typically a flat surface. The mirror has been hung on a green wall and positioned behind a wood table on which are two yellow lamps, a small silver bucket with pink orchids and a small green tray of knickknacks.
This floating vanity extends from the bathroom's main vanity fixture. A marble topped stool compliments the modern influence in the transitional design. The warm wood cabinetry and mirror frames are a beautifully warm contrast to the cool toned gray and white elements of the room.
A giant square mirror leans against the wall and creates a background for this vanity. A lovely table with decorative legs and long, thin drawers provides a sleek tabletop. A burgundy velvet chair adds rich color and texture for a stylish accent against the neutral room.
The polygon-shaped pool includes two mini waterfalls and a large wet deck for additional lounging space. Grass between the square pavers creates an intricate thatched design that mirrors the geometric shape of the pool.
This modern neutral colored bathroom features a large double vanity with ample storage, rectangular sinks with gooseneck faucets, sleek square mirrors and lighting, center window element, and tiled flooring
The designers with Parker Kennedy Living say a mirror with an interesting design can give you more bang for your buck. This one is an aged square mirror with an octagon design, which you can look for at antique markets. If it doesn't have the patina you want, you can antique the mirror. If you find a square mirror with an aged look, you could add thin molding to create an inlay shape or even etch the mirror.
