a peaceful home | day seventeen

mirrors make a small space feel bigger and brighter. we hung them on inside walls opposite windows to double our view and bring the outside inside. we even hung one of those old sheet mirrors from a client's bathroom outside on the back of our garage to make our notsobig back yard feel bigger and brighter.
it probably seems like a small thing, but catching a glimpse of sky and trees and nature when you are walking up the stairs is beautiful. there is no bad seat in the dining room because everywhere you look there is something meaningful, beautiful, or natural. the shaker rocking chair that tim built for me when i was pregnant with cole feels more important reflected in a mirror. the tight path behind the sofa feels big enough thanks to the illusion of space created by the mirrors. we have nothing in our home that we don't know to be useful or think to be beautiful, and to see that all reflected makes us happy.
this is one day of a 31 day series about living in a peaceful home.
