Smoke and Mirrors


Another tip we find ourselves doling out is to use mirrors to add light and bounce it around.

I always wonder if people think we're vain.  We use mirrors everywhere.

In my western-facing, low-light bedroom, I placed my mirrors behind the nightstand lamps, to amplify the light.  I even added mirrored chests underneath the lamps to hyperboost the light.  It works!

Do you use mirrors more than the occasional sunburst?

  5. We, uh, backed our bed up to an unused wall of mirrored-door closets for, uh, light amplification.

    Yeah, that's the story I'm going with.

  13. I have seen that photo above of the gallery wall of mirrors and love it. I use mirrors all the time, on the wall, behind my nightstands like you and on top of tables or trays to bounce a bit of light off of a flat surface.
