It’s official: round mirrors are having a moment. Not that I’m particularly surprised, mind you. Mirrors have long been a go to design accessory for those wanting to create the illusion of more light and space.


What makes round mirrors so special is the way they effortlessly infuse a room with instant style


A circular silhouette takes the humble mirror from a functional to a statement piece, making round mirrors the equivalent of the temptingly beautiful icing you put on top of a slightly burnt cake to make it taste better. So for those wanting to add a little icing to their space, here’s a round up of the best round mirror inspo – as spotted on Instagram.

Double Act

The only thing better than a round mirror is two complementary round mirrors.

Here, monochrome meets marble to create an aesthetic of simple elegance. Matching round mirrors, a solid industrial floating vanity and wall-mounted faucets add a contemporary edge to the final look.

Au Naturel

Whether in the bathroom, entryway, or a cozy little breakfast nook, a round mirror is the perfect way to ’round’ out any space.

Small space living enthusiasts, take note of how this wood-framed mirror works with the white wood paneled walls to create a bright, light-filled corner. I’m loving the overall neutral color palette which is perfectly in keeping with the airiness of the space.

Patterned Perfection

A subtly luxe gold-rimmed round mirror is an ideal palette cleanser to the intricate patterns of this pretty powder room.

Gold wall sconces, faucets and accessories tie everything together for a look that’s equal parts fun and polished. I think this might be this might be the ultimate girly bathroom of my dreams.

Mid Century Chic

Part and parcel of the mid century modern aesthetic are solid, robust statement furniture pieces.

The gentle curves of a round mirror are the perfect visual antidote to all that heaviness – as demonstrated by Hilary Duff’s charming home. Side note: I NEED that gothic-inspired chair-slash-throne – can anyone help a gal out?

A Scandinavian Twist

When it comes to round mirrors, bigger is always better in my opinion (and if space allows!).

Dominating the entryway of this minimalist Scandinavian home is an oversized round mirror, which works to bounce a seemingly unending amount of light throughout the space. I love the repetition of the circular silhouette in the spherical vase and marble art piece, quietly pulling everything together.

Gray Area

With gray marble-clad walls and surfaces, this handsome bathroom treads the line between austerity and refinement.

Luckily, the large round mirror design detail softens the severity of its aesthetic. This is definitely one for the minimalists.

All Round Opulence

With its marble vanity, brass design details and soft neutral palette, this bathroom is the epitome of luxe.

Here, the designers could easily have gone for a delicate and ornate baroque mirror frame, but I’m happy that they opted for a contemporary chic round mirror instead. Overall, it’s integral to keeping the space feeling fresh and youthful.
