10 of the best oversized mirrors

15 of the best oversized mirrors

I’m currently planning a long-overdue refurbishment of the bathroom in our holiday home in France (see my bathroom board) and lately, I have been obsessing with oversized round mirrors. I was very happy with the minimalist look of the bathroom cabinet we got for our tadelakt bathroom in our London home, which would you believe, is from Ikea. I was even thinking of using it again for the French project as it ticked several of my boxes.

Now that we’ve sold our holiday home in the Bay of Arcachon to my best friend (which is the cherry on the cake since I get to see more of her), we are starting to plan our #bodieandfourenovations to modernise our other home in France. One thing we are looking at revamping is our Ikea kitchen which I have to admit has not aged. Ten years on and the units are still looking very white and have not faded despite the huge amount of natural light filling the room. However, what has changed is our cooking habits (well mine mostly…). I started cooking which made me realise that there is actually not enough workspace to prepare the food when the two of us are in the kitchen + Steve finds it very antisocial to have his back turned to our guests when he is cooking. Added to the obvious lack of storage, there is quite a few things we could make right the second time around.
