All Mirror (everywhere)

So for those of you that didn't read the Home post last week, I have bought an appartement that they are still building that will (cross you fingers) be ready to move in to this January (YAAY). A lot of my time goes to researching decore and how to make the most out of small spaces. Lately (as in the last two years) I have been obsessing over mirror furniture. Its just something about it that instantly feels exclusive. Mirrors are a great way of making a small space seem bigger, so why not add some to your furniture as well? (If you want to see more of my inspiration, you can follow my inspiration board on Pintrest here)










Cheap option:  Mirrored furniture is often very expensive (now thats no shocker when its on my fav list! I curse you expensive taste..!!!). BUT Ikea decided to follow the trend in their fall line, so the classic Malm dresser now also come with a mirror finish! In real life it looks a bit more like metal than the more exclusive mirror dressers, but definitely an option if you want the effect and is on a budget. 


DIY Option: Which is (if you ask me) always the best option!!



Good luck! :)
