  2. While large mirrors are ubiquitous, the one you feature in an antique window frame is so much more interesting because of its architectural features. It adds structure to a fairly bland space. The arch between the rectangular doorways gives the room an architecture that is lacking without it, besides expanding the space with the mirrored frames. I just love what they did there!

  6. My daughter recently share the "furniture with legs" tip, but I can't afford a new sofa/chair right now. I'm looking at my slipcovers to see how they will look with the legs of the sofa exposed.

  8. note to Jennifer - that lg. mirror can be purchased at Ballards.com
    It comes in three parts or if you purchase a smaller one, it is one piece.

  10. Beautiful inspiration for living smaller. Of course I love using mirrors to enlarge a space visually. My adult children tell me that living small is trending among young people today. Mmmm...I need to do a lot more paring back to do this well.
    Thank you for your very lovely visit, Brenda.

  11. I have been preparing to live small(er) once we sell the 'big house' we are in. I think I can do it now- 10 years ago I don't think I could have-but, today I have the mindset to live big in a smaller space. Great post, Brenda. xo Diana

  12. I never would have thought of using furniture with legs, but of course now that you point it out, it makes perfect sense!
