If you want to make your home look bigger, there is no need to call a contractor. Decorating with mirrors is an easy, beautiful way to make any room feel larger, lighter and more open. Place a large mirror either directly across or diagonal from your window so that it can reflect the light, both natural and artificial, if you are low on windows, and allow the room to look larger.
Beyond basic decor, lighting is important for creating a desirable atmosphere. Cold weather typically brings shorter daylight hours. Lack of natural light causes a variety of strains, so prevent problems with accent lighting. Kerosene and oil lamps, spicy scented candles, and fireplaces are ideal for creating ambience and improving a room.
When cold weather settles around your home, keeping the inside warm and cozy becomes a top priority. Thankfully, no matter the temperature outside, it is not too difficult to make your interior space the perfect place to wait out the winter. First, examine the insulation. Caulking small cracks and gaps can drastically increase the efficiency of a homes heating system. Weatherstripping and exchanging curtain sheers for heavy drapes also does wonders.
Mirrors are another key element of vintage design. A large mirror can open up the space and the frame can add to the décor of the room. Sunburst mirrors are also a great addition to vintage room decor. Once popular in the 1930s, new designs are coming back to reflect the eras style. They are certainly a talking point of any room.
