Feature Wall Friday: Mirrored Window Walls {and a Discount Code to Payless Decor}

Welcome to today’s installment of Feature Wall Friday!  Each week, I highlight a great idea for one of my favorite parts of any room – a fabulous feature wall.

Today we are looking at an image that I’ve seen several times on BHG.com.  I love this little breakfast nook built around this bank of windows.  I always love a good window wall.

Feature Wall Friday: Mirrored Wall of Windows

But upon closer inspection, there’s not a bank of windows at all.  In fact, this nook area only has two windows.  The designer hung a long mirror on the adjoining wall at the same height as the windows, so you have the illusion of having four windows instead of just two – genius!  The light reflected in the mirror brightens that wall and brings extra light into the room.

I love all the windows that I have in my home, and I think this is a great idea. But, if your neighbors are just a stone’s throw away from your home (like mine are), you’ll probably want more window covering options, too.  My favorite place to buy window coverings online – Payless Decor – gave me a special code to share with you guys for a good discount.  Use the code MH10913 and receive 10% off of anything over $75.  This code is good through 9/7/13.  They have rugs and drapery, too!

Have a fantastic holiday weekend!

  1. I’m a big fan of mirrors too. I’m in the process of making a mirror wall for my Mom’s house. She has the most amazing scenery outside the window but the bed was best placed under the window so we are putting mirrors up on the opposite wall so whoever is in bed can look at the mirrors and it will be like gazing outside the window.

    I can’t wait to get this completed!
