New Mirror in the Kitchen {Round Mirror Obsession}

New Mirror in the Kitchen {Round Mirror Obsession}

I love round mirrors. Maybe it is because so many things in a house are typically square or rectangle. A little bit of roundness softens things up and gives a room more interest.

I recently added this huge quirky and fun round wood ship portal style mirror to our kitchen. It makes such a big fantastic statement! I’m IN LOVE!  It is so whimsical and full of rustic texture, I’m digging the jolt of personality it brings to the room.  It is just such a uniquely interpreted piece, and a fun cross between a typical modern sunburst mirror and a coastal portal mirror, I love it even more than I imagined!

At first I was scared that it would overwhelm the room and call too much attention to itself, but it ended up being a great statement piece. Sometimes we go way too small, safe or predictable when it comes to accessories or things on the wall! One nice big unique statement piece in a room can make a real impact. The rustic wood plays off the wood floors and contrasts with the sleekness of the white quartz counters. And the round shape is absolutely perfect for finishing off a room with many rectangles.

I’d show you more of this cute corner in the kitchen, but it is almost time for the whole kitchen reveal (you can see the kitchen cabinet colors here) and I need to save some angles for that big day. Right? Heh heh heh. Sorry! But I do have some adorable new light fixtures I want to show you before the big reveal, so stay tuned on that.

You’ve all waited so patiently through my kitchen updating and I’m trying to show you each new addition I make along the way, but you’ll see how the whole room comes together very soon. Seeing the whole space will give you a much better idea of how the room feels and relates to the style as a whole, as my goal is not to create just a pretty corner for a photo, but an entire home that flows well and feels good to be in from all angles!

Oh, and back to talking about round mirrors (cause I like to jump around like that in conversations), this past year I got a couple of other new round mirrors. One is the round mirror you’ve seen above my bed. And, I just added another round mirror I adore to our powder room, which I will reveal to you in the powder room makeover post in the next day or so! The room turned out so cute! I’m SO excited to have it DONE!

Also? I’m pretty happy to see tulips again. Aren’t you? Spring IS on its way.

The awesome rustic round wood mirror in this post is from a fun little home decor shop called Lulu & Georgia. You can shop with them online, yippee! This mirror was provided to The Inspired Room in exchange for the blog mention, but as always my opinions and decorating style and choices are my own.


  1. Ooh, you leave me wanting more, more, more! Can’t wait for the whole reveal! And you are spot on about wimping out by going too small or safe. Glad you had the guts to go for it. It looks fab!

  2. Such a beautiful mirror. Love the coloring with all your shades of white.
    Have a GREAT day…

  3. Anxiously waiting the entire kitchen reveal! I am finalizing my kitchen plans this Friday. So excited! I decided on white counters as well and can’t wait to see your entire kitchen. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Yes, there’s something about round mirrors. I’ve got three of my own but none are large enough to make a statement like yours. Love it!

  5. I just love mirrors period, this one is very pretty and rustic. I love the pottery underneath.


  6. Beautiful!!

  7. What a cool mirror! I love that one and the one in the master bedroom…. could hardly wait until I see the one for the powder room
    I do love mirrors but have a hard time hanging them at the right height. I am only 5’1″ so for many mirrors (at the recommended height) they all seem to come up to my chin… LOL

  8. What a lovely mirror! It looks great.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  9. Love it. I’m obsessed with round mirrors and just bought several <3 yours looks great Melissa

  10. I had to chuckle when you mentioned how we sometimes go way too small, etc., and saw the teeny elephant in the next photo! But I am learning so much as I follow your progress. Can’t wait for the promised reveals :)

  11. What a stunning mirror, the effect is great! And yes, THANK YOU for the lovely yellow tulips <3

  12. Oh, I love it!!! I am in love with rustic wood! I would so love to recreate something like this if I could! Can’t wait to see your entire kitchen!

  13. You are absolutely correct…most people put too many small things on the wall. Your mirror is just charming!! Love that. Can’t wait to see the reveal!!

  14. I Love that Mirror. Such a statment piece

  15. I love the contrast! I’m trying to achieve somewhat, sorta the same spring look but I need to purchase some white containers. I might have to get crafty and lean towards a cottage look since the beautiful white vases are something to invest into my budget. I love this look!

  16. Those yellow tulips really contrast wonderfully with the white and brown.

  17. I LOVE this. The mirror is awesome, but I genuinely feel my favorite part and the thing I most adore is the tiny elephant. By reading so many wonderful home decor bloggers, I am beginning to have the courage to place something that doesn’t “fit” in conventional terms to the spaces I work on.

  18. Love the mirror! – could be perfect for my dining area too. Where’s you buy it?

  19. It looks so pretty!! So fun to see it up and in your house :)

  20. I love that mirror!

  21. I have always loved round mirrors. This one is a perfect backdrop for your lovely tulips. Hugs

  22. I love this mirror. So rustic and still so clean looking. Can’t wait for the big reveal!

    I think, I wanted to get that wood mirror too but not for my kitchen.
    Looks beautiful.

  24. And when is this big day coming….my kitchen remodel is just a few days away and I was sure hoping to see your island before I give the “full steam ahead” to my remodel guys!!!

  25. Beautiful!…Love Mirrors!

  26. looking forward to your big kitchen reveal. :)
