January 19, 2013 in Design Dilemma
What are some color suggestions for this custom framed large wall mirror? Should i match the trim color? Should i introduce a new color and make two other mirrors to match over vanity sinks?

I do! I think you should match the trim color in the room. It's lovely!

I would match the trim color and highlight the dentil or balls and beads that are on it with silver leaf.

I like it/would paint it the trim color/but now I am noticing your white cabinet...are your cabinets all going to be white? Being u have two sinks that now need mirrors, I would match them to the custom mirror and make them more tall/rectangular.

Thanks for the input. I have decided to paint to match trim color and make two mirrors in the same craftsman style to match for over the sinks. @ jayme the vanity tower is a color called white lagoon, it actually has a very light blue tint to it. The sink base cabinets are a maple finish and will remain that way. The customer was on a tight budget. Which is why the cultured marble countertop was left, and a painted cabinet was installed. When i finish the project i will post more pics, again thanks for the insight everyone.

Here are some finished pics I did a hybrid color on the the mirrors. the body matched the trim paint and then i put a grey accent in to some of it. Lets hear what you think. More pics available at masqualityconstruction.com

Ouch!!!!! The concept is a good one but now it looks like an old fashioned bank teller's compartment. Can one or two of the doors come off the storage tower? Towels could be rolled and stacked to break up the mass. There's a lot of mirror in there now too. By installing a few pegs across the frame (of the large mirror) towels, robes or even a bunch of dried flowers could hang from the pegs and would help soften it up. Another idea is to add pegs, and then on just one or two, hang framed photos. Fit the backs of the photos with ribbon which is tied to the peg. Use a putty fixative (museum gel) or caulk to anchor the pictures to the mirror.
The illusion will be that they are hanging from the ribbon tied around the pegs.

The project was on a tight budget, my focus was on bang for the buck. Total material cost for this project was $620.00
