If you are a loyal follower of Mirrorworld on Twitter you will already know that we have a crazy stupid love for houseplants.
And we just want to say… it’s not an unjustified love.
You may not realise this but mirrors and plants are the perfect partners in home décor.
You can see from our mood board how you go from a small – and perhaps measly – houseplant on a shelf to a mini jungle with this clever mirror placement.
The best plants to do this with are extra leafy ones like the Chinese Evergreen, Grape Ivy or Snake Plants. All of these leafy, chunky plants will give a beautiful baby forest illusion.
And with Greenery being the popular choice for Pantone’s colour of the year, what better way to enhance the shade than this ‘mini’ jungle effect!
This trick is brilliant for plants that you still love but aren’t always as bright and beautiful as they can be, the mirror can make them look bigger in the room – making you (and them) feel like it makes a pretty contribution to the room instead of fading in the background.
You can even try this look outside, to make a small garden look twice the size! Make your mirror bespoke, (try our online design tool here), by choosing a larger more impactful mirror.
The best mirrors to put with lush plants are on our mood board below, featuring a golden antique favourite, one to weave vines into, a mirror with a flowing holiday feel and the oversized mirror for the garden effect!
Embrace the leaves and greenery this year with plants and mirrors – enjoy! 🌿
