3 Methods to Using Mirrors to Accentuate Your Home Décor

Ignore the mess, I'm cooking dinner!
From allowing the sunshine to flood your home and wake up your senses, to checking out the beautiful reflection you see before you leave the house, mirrors serve quite a purpose in home décor. They can be used to accentuate your interior designs, especially kitchen and bath remodeling projects, more so than they can be used to make sure your eyeliner is on point. So, next time you need a boost to your designs, read up on the 3 methods for using mirrors to accentuate your home décor.

Capture and Reflect Natural Sunlight

If you want to capture and reflect natural sunlight with mirrors, you have to be strategic in their placements. When sunlight hits a mirror, it reflects back and outwards. So, you need to get the sunlight to hit one mirror, reflect a stream into another, and so on until you achieve the perfect amount of sunshine for your home décor. Mirrors also leave a sparkle of sunlight from one reflected stream to another, so your home will look truly magical in the mornings. This process cuts down on your power bills, because natural sunshine can light your home for hours.

Why Toddlers Love Repetition #toddlerbehavior

Brianna, © 2017
When I hear one of Brianna's favorite YouTube videos that she likes to watch, I feel like I might lose my shit. I find myself singing to the same tunes when I least expect it, especially when at work. You can probably find me humming the lyrics to "Baby Shark... doo doo... ", and many more. She loves repetition, and listens to the same things over and over again... not purposely to drive me crazy! Most toddlers like repetition since it's familiar, comforting, and at times helps them learn.

By the time your toddler is two, you should notice that she's starting to repeat the same words and phrases constantly. By the time that she's three, she will start to demand her favorite stories, songs and nursery rhymes over and over again. By repetition, your toddler is able to learn and take in new information every time. That's why you should allow your little one to select their bedtime book for you to read to her. You will most likely notice that she will chose the same one most of the time.

She will also love nursery rhymes and stories with repeated phrases... which is a good way to join in.This helps your child learn more words and phrases each time that you repeat it. If you make any changes, your toddler may correct you or add her own variation.
