Last July I was in Stacy Hyde in Dallas and was taken with the simple gesture of hanging a mirror over a mirror. The addition of this convex sunburst mirror adds interest and texture to what is otherwise a standard.
Here DC based designer Kelley Proxmire hangs a large, round convex mirror over a mirrored wall, reflecting light and expanding the space. This dining room was part of an Eastern Shore Decorator Showhouse from a few years ago. I happened to go to this showhouse and loved this room. The simple centerpiece would be great for a Thanksgiving table setting. For more - go to Kelley Proxmire's website here.

After spending an inordinate amount of time searching for more pictures of mirrors over mirrors and running dry, I wondered about layering Art over a Mirror?
What about hanging a print that is framed with a surround of glass (like below) over a mirror? You could use ribbon to hang it - maybe even doing something just for the holidays... (pictures from my visit to And George in Charlottesville, VA)
Or, as Kelley Proxmire did here, hanging a Mirror over a Window?

If you're interested in more on layering mirrors, go to Apartment Therapy DC here. I discovered Leah did a terrific post after I stayed up way too late looking for more pics!
