We’re Famous!

Well, maybe not quite famous but our work was chosen to be featured on the website Houzz.com. This is one of our favorite design websites because it features pictures and ideas from a wide range of designers and homeowners. It’s really a great place to get fresh looks and inspiration for your home.

Houzz (click here for the post) chose a warm dining room we designed to include in their story about mirrors. We’ve talked before on this blog about how to make a small space feel large, and adding mirrors for small spaces is a terrific way to do that. As you can see from this dining room (above, and fourth photo down in the story), a narrow room suddenly feels much larger because of all the reflection happening between the mirror, the windows and the door. Rather than feeling boxed in, you get a light, airy sense — even with gorgeous, chunky furniture and two dramatic chandeliers taking up much of the space.

Some of the other designers in the article used mirrors in even more demanding ways, such as the top photo with the large, propped mirror or the mirrored wall in the second photo. We like the two framed mirrors in the photo below ours that work together to create a fun feel along with that fantastic chandelier and clear seating. You’re not likely to run into a copycat dining room at your next dinner party if you adopt a look like that!

Please contact us at Tracy Lynn Studio if we can help you incorporate a mirror into your small space, or help with any of your design needs.
