I’m always moving things around in our home. And even when something looks really good, after some time we learn it doesn’t always work the best. Our entry is the perfect example of this. I loved our entry that we put together last year, but as soon as we got our new front door installed (that’s much larger), it was painfully obvious how off-centered the whole entry felt. The door is closer to the right wall than the left and with the big credenza on the right, too, it just felt lopsided with the door open or closed.
So a couple months ago, we ordered this gigantic mirror from arhaus. It’s huge (96″ tall!) and fills the space perfectly.
It can be mounted on the wall or lean on the floor (and it comes with anti-tip hardware, too). It got delivered just a few days ago, so I’m still needing to bring in a few more pieces to really make it shine again. Something green. A large planter. I think a round table on the other side of the entry would really balance the space out even more (we’d put the bench in our new mudroom when the time comes). It opened up the entry so much!
But the new mirror caused a little ripple effect around the house–forcing the other furniture elsewhere which is always kind of fun, right?. The credenza moved into the music room (love it in there!)
And the console that we had in the music room actually moved behind the navy sofa in the living room! I’m always looking for ways to add more layers into a room and there was quite a large walkway behind the blue sofa that was never used.
Placing the sofa table behind there, allowed for a casual place to stack books and a pretty candle, of course. It added a nice amount of depth to the room. Anytime you can layer furnishings, I think it makes a room look more cozy and adds character.
The other mirror ended up in Greta’s room, so every piece is accounted for! It was just a big game of musical furniture. Which, coincidentally is my favorite game.
When I was on the hunt for large mirrors, it was so difficult going through and looking for every dimension, so I rounded up a few favorites below that include the dimensions so you can easily see if it will work for your space!
