Are you ready to level up your decorating skills with mirrors? With these valuable tips from David Neto, you will be a pro.
The German singer Nico once said, “I’ll be your mirror,” in one of her songs of the time. While everything that the singer said wouldn’t be taken seriously. Nowadays, artists agree with her visions. Mirrors have the power to transmit reflection with just one look.
This Spring, in Tribecca, David Lewis Gallery showcases John Boskovich’s mirror work. His work cast its user’s different scenarios. In one, we can see a viewer sports a crown of thorns.
Elsewhere in New York, you can see the colorful mirror canvases by Carlito Carvalhosa. In Bitforms, Daniel Rozin, an artist-technologist, shows his futurist art with mirrors, imagining them in motorized format.
Regardless of your taste, this is the moment for you to embrace the power of mirrors in your home. To start, you must remember that the mirror-bright up the natural daylight in the house.
You can follow the example of David Netto, an interior designer pushing the limits of architecture. Near Kensington Palace, the designer installed a mirror in a ground-floor maisonette where it wasn’t allowed to use doors. Another mirror seems to put a fireplace hovering in space.
Clients sometimes think that mirrors can bring too much glamour. Their minds turn to Halston’s over-the-top hall mirror in Olympic Tower’s showroom. The designer reminds people that Dorothy Draper displays them with ease. With ornate frames and the symmetry of the classic Georgian Interior.
On the other hand, people with a more modernist taste might think of Richard Neutra’s display of the full mirror on the top floor of VDL House.
Decorating With Mirrors
Like Katherine Thewlis of Hausmatter Interiors, you can try making a mirror into a window. For example, in the renovation of the designer home, she placed a mirror over the sink to frame a view back to the room.
In whatever you do, use the mirror to gatekeep your moments and guide them. The designer, David Netto, used a mirror to hide clumsy plumbing in a previous apartment.
To conclude, Netto suggests the absence of a mirror. He states that “sometimes a mirror absence, rather than a presence, is noteworthy.” The bathroom in an Upper East Side townhouse designed by Lorenzo Mongiardino has full-height Greek plates on the wall.
