Since I knew I would be hanging a mirror on the mirror, I had a 4" square cut out where I needed the overmirror to hang from. Another way we hang "floating" mirrors on top of wall mirrors is to hang them on thin chains from the ceiling (if you have support there). Art and Mirror hanging is a great professional to use. 301-515-7333

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kristy Woodson Harvey and Beth Woodson added this to Twist on Tradition: Blue and White Porcelain
Make a powerful statement in the entryway. Try putting a grouping like this in a hallway or nook that is particularly difficult to fill. A pair of ginger jars like the one on the right side of the table is one of my favorite things to give for a wedding. The sweet pea vines symbolize "forever" and "many children," while the main decoration is a shuang xi character which is the symbol for "wedded bliss." It's a great way to think outside the registry.
Kelly Porter added this to Classic Color Duo: Blue and White
Chinese blue and white wares are traditional accessories that fit into a room of any style and color.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Collective Wisdom: Display Ideas for Collections of All Kinds
Console tables are often just right for displaying collections, particularly of large-scale items like these blue and white vases. On the table … under the table … they could even be on shelves over the table. But note that this works so well because of the other elements used in the display. The mercury glass vases and the lush floral arrangement give the composition depth and texture, taking what could have been a hard edge off the porcelains.
One of the most versatile ceramics to collect are pieces in blue and white. They mix well with almost any color scheme and with any style or period. Here a fantastic collection is amassed on a console in an entry hall, creating a vivid and welcoming first impression.As with many ceramic collections, antiques and newer pieces live comfortably together — your collecting addiction doesn’t have to be imprisoned by a time frame. But keep your collection personal and meaningful by limiting yourself to the pieces you really love and passing on the pieces that are just so-so.

Ceramics are one of the very best things you can collect. They’re functional (especially compared with silver match safes), come in a wide range of prices and, when used lovingly and displayed creatively, bring design magic to a room. One of the most versatile ceramics to collect are pieces in blue and white. They mix well with almost any color scheme and with any style or period. Here a fantastic collection is amassed on a console in an entry hall, creating a vivid and welcoming first impression.
