Serene Bedroom

Try placing a tall mirror behind a light source, like this mod floor lamp, to bounce light around a small bedroom and make it appear bigger and brighter. Go with an antique-looking piece, like the DIY mirror shown here, to add some character to a contemporary space. Remember to hang, or otherwise affix, your mirror the wall so that it stays in place.

To create your own mirror, check out our DIY Faux Antique Mirror blog post.
