Well, you have sold me on the idea! Now I want to try this too!

my favorite and my best said...

love it too, but i have no wall space in the kitchen. but that HB norris/leslie kitchen is my future kitchen so i will have one.

i'd love to email you a picture of the obscene gaudy mirror above my stove ... you might wanna fight for it

paula said...

It's one of my favorite looks since seeing that first image in HB. Love it, now to just do it:)

...and good feng shui...if done right!

Naomi said...

it definitely adds a nice decorative touch. I don't think I'd want it over my range, though. I'm too messy of a chef!

Will @ Bright.Bazaar said...

The two kitchens from house beautiful are totally calling out to me. Love them.

Love it.. I have just cleared a little wall + I'm thinking mirror- thanks for the inspiration and selling me :) xoxo

I love mirrors any where and in an unexpected place like a kitchen even better. I have a mirror sitting in the corner of my kitchen counter with a lamp to brighten a dark corner and the inside of my cupboards are mirrored. I told you I just love a MIRROR!!!! Great post, Have a wonderful MONDAY!

Unexpected items in unexpected places, love it!

Flaviana said...

Never thought of that!! I like the idea- especially after seeing pic nr.5!
Happy Monday

I use mirrors EVERYWHERE, and yes, the kitchen is a great place for them, it can totally glam it up! And I just adore Ryan Korban, he's my favorite designer!

Bridget said...

that first kitchen/mirror is gooooorgeous.

Christina @ greige said...

I am in love with the second kitchen pictured! I need those counters- do you know are the concrete?

love these photos! i have a mirror in my kitchen...over my cooktop. when my friends ask 'why?" i casually say "so when i'm taping my cooking show, the camera can get a front and center view of the food!" totally kidding of course, but it's fun to pretend!

Just found you via Style. Love these kitchen pictures, but made me realise it is the one room I think I've never seen a mirror.
Also loved your piece on oriental rugged stairs.

i think to avoid having to clean up more spatters (see my kitchen window above my sink), i'd have to place a mirror away from any work spaces!

CrowNology said...

Oh I love these images.
Wonderful collection.
and Inspiration.

I love the idea of a mirror in the kitchen. It somehow glamourizes the space, but I definitely wouldn't want it above the stove...splatters would ruin the look!

Paisley said...

Why not do it? I find more mirrors I like then I do artwork anyways!

Dumbwit Tellher said...

That Norris/Leslie kitchen with it's huge mirror over the range is wonderful!!!

shi(f)t said...

love the one from house beautiful--it's like a window about the stove. love!

Tiffany said...

Just found your blog and am so excited to comb through it tonight! I've been wanting to find a gray for my bedroom so I'm looking forward to getting some ideas from you.

Michelle said...

I know, pretty freaking geneous!

That 2nd kitchen is awesome! I would love to have that much space. I move around a lot while I'm cooking. I'm all over the place!

Tiffany said...

I love the stools in the kitchen by Sally Wheat. Any idea where they are from?

M.A.the2nd said...

What a fabulous idea.... I love it and I love the antiqued mirrors as well!

Splendid Willow said...

Love the idea in these homes. But not in my kitchen. I would scare the mirror every time I glanced at it. Do you know what I look like when I am cooking!!!?? Nothing fancy, I can assure you!

Cyber hug to you my friend,

Mon

Love these kitchen shots! So inspirational.

Charlotta Ward said...

..ah, I don't think I am a pretty sight when cooking.. :) .. however love the look and general statement of a mirror in the kitchen. So decadent and eccentric somehow and THAT I love!
