Combine mirrors with patterned wallpaper to create a visually intriguing space. The reflective surfaces enhance the wallpaper’s design, adding depth and dimension.

If your wallpaper has a bold and large-scale pattern, balance it with smaller, more subtle patterns in your décor, such as throw pillows, bedding or rugs. Conversely, if your patterns are more subtle, you can experiment with more intricate mirror designs.
