Many people do not realize what a big difference mirrors could make in their homes. I’m not talking about taboo or folk beliefs here. By placing a nice mirror strategically in a room, you could create a more spacious look and feel to that place. Of course if your room is already spacious enough, you may want to put a nice mirror there as part of the interior decor. Just make sure that it is able to complement the rest of the furniture and fittings so that it will not look out of place.
If you’re looking for something more exotic instead of the boring square wooden frame mirrors, you could check out the lovely designs of Moroccan mirrors. They come in different shapes with beautiful carved mirror frames. These Moroccan mirror frames are usually made from wood or metal and brass. Some will come with beautiful carving that include wood, metal, brass and silver. because Moorish designs are usually symmetrical and intricate in detail, those who enjoy cultured and antique style items will definitely appreciate the patterns and look of these Moroccan mirrors.
Since Morocco is an Islamic country, you probably won’t find much of any crazy taboo when it comes to getting some of these mirrors. A Chinese friend of mine once told me that some of the Chinese have the belief that mirrors have the ability to ward of evil spirits. When I asked her what was the logic behind using mirrors to ward off evil spirits and how it was even going to work, she basically explained that evil spirits could not bear to see their own reflections.
Anyway, I’m not much into taboos or folk beliefs. I’m more of the practical and logical type of person. Things need to be rational. And on top of that I like homes that are beautifully furnished.
