I am thinking about changing the wall decor over the couch. I saw a fabulous mirror (see below) but do you have any other suggestions or if you are thinking a mirror like me, feel free to suggest pieces that are scale appropriate. Many thanks Houzzers!

I think you need something with cleaner lines. I like this one with the pop of smaller mirrors. Or the classic look of the other. Lakewood Bathrooms Classic Antique Gold & Mahogany Wall Mirror

Good morning Taywel,

You have a lovely space, and it's also a lovely mirror.
My only concern would be if the finish/style of the mirror will work in your space.
In order to help blend the styles, I would recommend repeating the geometric pattern and brushed nickel finish elsewhere in your room. Ex: Coffee table, lamps, area rug
This will take your space out of it's current traditional look and lean it towards more of an eclectic style.
Good luck and have fun!
Caroline :)

Like the mirror but dont see it working in your rooom --unless maybe in another finidh such as walnut / dark brown .. The decoration you have over your sofa is fun maybe you can reuse it somewhere else. I would hang them one over the other (all 3) on a narrow wall.

Thank you all for your input. Caroline thanks for mocking the mirror for me, it allows me to see that it won't work! Pyramid, agreed, I am somewhat eclectic , but my style is clearly more traditional. Funny, I've turned into mom after all :). Kelly I like the border on the gold traditional frame , the other is more contemporary and takes me out of my "style comfort zone". So much to consider, I agonize over these decisions. I appreciate the help.

I love that mirror! Unfortunately I don't think it goes well with your golden walls. Can you find a mirror that's framed in the same wood tones as the wood of your furniture? I think a dark wooden frame would be perfect.

What do you think of these pieces? Do you think it will make the room seem dark. They would be hung horizontally.
