A Trendy Reflection: Tinted Mirror Style

Now it’s possible to see the world through rose-colored glass! After all, there’s a tinted mirror trend that’s going strong in the world of high-end design, and it’s making its way into the catalogs of our favorite retailers as well. Unusual, striking, geometric and undeniably modern, tinted mirrors are part work of art, part functional reflective surface. Today we’re taking a look at the many ways tinted mirrors are making an impact in the realms of art and design. Read on to discover how you can creatively incorporate them into your home…

Types of Tinted Mirrors

There are many different designs featuring reflective tinted glass, from the large to the tiny. Below we see the home of interior stylist Jenny Hjalmarson Boldsen, photographed by Hannah Lembolt. Since the majority of the room is black and white, the warm tone of this giant mirror has a saturated, striking appearance. [from Nordic Design]

Some tinted mirrors are true works of art, crafted to celebrate elements of design and creativity. This Tinted Mirror by Daniel Rybakken is in fact two main pieces: one actual mirror and one piece of colored glass that creates a “tinted mirror” feel. The glass is suspended from the ceiling, while the mirror is mounted to the wall. The configuration results in a 3D object:
