As a retired interior decorator myself, I'd like to make one comment about using mirrors: A mirror is only as good as what it reflects. If it reflects nothing but a patch of blank wall, then it's just a frame. Make sure the mirror reflects something interesting. When I placed one over a fireplace or dining server, I would set it so it tilted downward and would reflect the people sitting in the room, the candlelight and flowers on the table, etc.; not the empty wall across the room.
