Friday Favorites - Antique Mirrors in a Bathroom

I love antique mirrors. In fact, they are one of my favorite antiques to own. And in a bathroom, they are wonderful. Especially an all-white or neutral bath. It's amazing how with all the hard surfaces, straight edges, and cool colors of a bathroom, introducing an antique mirror (usually gold) can add so much warmth and character. It keeps a white bathroom from looking too antiseptic and cold.

One of my all-time favorite bathrooms! I tore this out of a magazine probably 10 years ago, but it's as gorgeous today as it was then - timeless. Amy D. Morris Interiors.

Love that she mixes the gilt mirror with nickel finishes on the hardware. By designer Mary Jo Donohoe via Traditional Home.

Honestly, this is just one of the prettiest bathrooms I've ever come across. Those double (!) antique mirrors are amazing!

 Unlike most of my examples, this one is silver leaf, but I love it! And it still adds warmth because it's such an aged, warm silver. By Chenault James Interiors.

Dana Wolters Interiors.

Yes, I know I used this for my antique baskets post, but it works here too! Design by Brooke Giannetti via Veranda.

I have a reproduction gilt mirror in my downstairs powder room now, but if I ever find a real antique one that will work, I'm definitely changing it out!

Happy Friday!
