Which Looks Better??

I need your help.
Which mirror looks better in the middle, this one

or this one

I've lost track of how many times I've changed out this wall.  I'd like for this to be the last time!

Kim

Hi Kim...

Girlfriend, I know what you mean...how many times I've changed something back and forth...trying to decide which one I like best! hehe! You have the most beautiful living room! I love, love, LOVE your leather sofa...it's gorgeous...and I love all of your decorative pillows!!! Sooo very pretty! Mmmm...let's see...both mirrors really do look fabulous but I love the chunky ornate frame on the mirror in the 2nd photo...but I love all the ornate stuff and always gravitate toward it!!! Best wishes...have fun decorating, Darlin'!!!

Have a fabulous day...

1st one

Cathy said...

What a beautiful setting! The sofa is TO DIE FOR! LOVE IT!

I am going to agree with Chari and say the second pic! I love the shape and the chunky frame! I must say though...they are both beautiful!

I hopr you have a wonderful weekend!
XOXO

That's a tough question. In your house, everything looks good! But if I had to choose, I'd say the 2nd one. I don't know, maybe because the photo was a close up of it and it just hit me as being "the one".

Nancy's Notes said...

Hi Kim, I like the second one, like the more ornate and big chunky mirror! Either look is great!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I'm really drawn more to liking the second one; probably because of the shape. It's too much "roundness" for me with the first one. Plus, the second one kind of mimics the lines of your sofa {and I like when that happens!}.

Beth in NC said...

What a lovely room! I think both look great, but I am drawn to the second one. :o)

Aimee said...

You have such a beautiful living room, I love your decorating style. So ornate and elegant. Just gorgeous!

I like the second one best because I like the different shapes and the frame fits better with the overall feel. :)

Good luck!

Yankee Girl said...

I vote for the second one! I love that large mirror!

Beverly @ The Buzz said...

Both are beautiful, but I like the 2nd one, too. Will you hate me if I also say it seems a little too high?

Nalamienea said...

I like the repetition of the first oval mirror, but i'm a sucker for that kinda thing. :)

KarenSue said...

I see your problem here. I think I like the 2nd but I have to agree with Beverly they seem a little too high. When you get tired of one switch to the other. I do like them both.

Debbie said...

They are both super pretty, but if I had to make a choice, I would say number 2:)

Kimberly said...

Kim, Thanks for stopping by. I am from Rockaway.

sweetjeanette said...

LOL...you sound SO much like me! It's gorgeous either way, but for me personally, I'm not an "ornate" kinda girl so I think I like the oval mirror arrangement best. (just read the previous comments and I seem to be in a league of my own. what else is new? LOL)

I like the mirror in the second photo, the larger more square one. The only thing that bothers me about it is it looks as though it's hung too high. I think you would like it better if it were lower.

Jemsmom said...

Egads!! I like both. My first vote is the first one. I like the simplicity of the mimicking ovals, but I love the chunkiness of the second one, but I do think it should be hung a bit lower if you go with number two. Well, I am no help here!!! You can't go wrong with either one!!!! My gut says the first one...

Tracy's Trinkets and Treasures said...

I like the 2nd one and I agree that it needs to be lowered. I really like all the colors in the room. Just beautiful.

~Carrie from Cottage Cozy~ said...

I like the first one, the oval shape...I suppose you are now going to get a 50/50 response...good luck!

Linda said...

Hi Kim- these are both gorgeous mirrors, but I think the second one has the "wow" factor! Just depends on the feeling you are going for in the room- it's really a lovely space!!

Mimi said...

I like the oval one, but I would turn it the long way and take the other mirrors/sconces down!

mihalsky1987 said...

I like the 2nd scene, but may I suggest reversing the two small mirrors-- place the lower one (larger) at the top and the upper one (smaller) at the bottom.

Ashley said...

I like the first one! They are both beautiful but the 1st one just looks best with your decor.

Brittany said...

Oh wow...the first one is good, but the second one is GREAT! I just love it :) I like how it's bigger and chunky :)

sissie said...

I really like the second one because it is just a little more ornate and it breaks up the oval shapes. It's much more substantial and makes a better focal point. I would just move it down a little lower.

Lovely room.

The first one. It is "softer"
than the other one.

I think the second one is chunkier and has more presence...I would actually paint it another color...so it looks like a collected over time look (you could keep some gold some not) and all the gold with the sofa color is very similar in color...just a thought...I would lower the mirroe as well...

Another idea is to go with the other mirror and add plates to the mix...you could even hang that mirror sideways...:)
Here ia some inspiration...

I go for the 2nd one but I'm a square peg kind of girl! That being said, I don't think you could go wrong with either one. Go with your heart!

I like the second option better, but they are both pretty.
