Anurhada Round Wall Mirror by Crate & Barrel
Apart from being an actress, activist and a model, Emily Ratajkowski is also known for her incredible selfie game, yielding 23.8 million followers on Instagram. One of our favourite pictures is this one with her posing in front of a wood-framed circular mirror, her hair worn in a simple braid, gazing not at her own reflection but at the casual onlooker through the mirror. While a little on the pricier side, Crate & Barrel’s Anurhada Round Wall Mirror ($499) is a great investment if you are looking for something that effortlessly gives your home a rustic elegance. Crafted by a group of artisans, the mirror frame is made from mango wood stained a rich brown to bring out the grain. After all, details are what makes a picture stand out, right?

Vintage charm is all the rage these days, whether for outfits or selfies. Filmmaker and actress Mirella Cardoso redefines mirror selfies, showing us just how to elevate our pictures with classic Parisian flair. Holding a medium format film camera in her hands, Mirella elegantly poses in front of a vintage looking oval mirror with a metallic rim. Nook & Cranny’s Metal Framed Mirror ($180) emanates similar vibes with its shape and distressed finishing. Measuring 61cm by 78cm, the mirror is perfect mounted on the wall — or even laid on the floor for creative photos, like Mirella’s.
Black Rectangular Mirror
YouTuber Amalie Bladt takes the mirror selfie game to a whole new level by placing her mirror outdoors. As she documents actually bringing the mirror outdoors to take the picture on her YouTube vlog, perhaps one thing we can take inspiration from (other than her creative methods for a better background) is how chic a simple black full-length mirror can be. IKEA has one of a similar design with their HEMNES mirror ($99). Measuring 60cm by 90cm, the mirror is made of black-brown solid wood. A simple rectangular mirror lined with moulded edges, the piece has a classic look and can be hung vertically or horizontally, depending on what fits your mood and the space. The mirror also comes with wall brackets at the back and as we all know and love, the IKEA assembly process is uncomplicated.
Clarendon Brass Large Round Wall Mirror
A delicate gold mirror positioned atop a Victorian looking headboard, overlooking an elegant setup that lies behind supermodel Kendall Jenner shows us just how little you need to encapsulate a room’s beautiful interior in a casual mirror selfie. A great way to show off your newly renovated room without being too obvious, consider Crate & Barrel’s Clarendon Brass Large Round Wall Mirror ($549) that also doubles up as the perfect accessory for your bedroom wall. The mirror is designed in a way to remind us of the sun, with rays of steel wire with a textured brass drippings radiating outward to give us that contemporary sunburst effect. You won’t need much more to vamp up your bedroom.
SONGE by IKEA
Singer Sabrina Claudio looks like one of those period beauties portrayed in Italian Renaissance paintings, especially when she is reflected in a mirror with a gold frame that looks like it would actually be used to frame an art piece. Since every selfie is undoubtedly art, why not give yourself the frame you deserve? While these vintage looking mirrors might be hard to come by, SONGE ($199) by IKEA can be a good modern option. The dimensions of the piece are 91cm by 130cm, which is pretty wide and can capture quite a lot of background. Its rectangular shape coupled with a silver rim gives off a vintage look, especially as its edges have been treated specially to replicate the effect of imperfection and ageing. The mirror also comes with wall brackets on its back.
Rustic Rectangular Wall Mirror by Kenroy Home
While on vacation with boyfriend and singer The Weeknd, Bella Hadid captures a snippet of her holiday backdrop with a rustic-looking full length mirror mounted on a wall. It’s a great contrast to the vibrant background and bright red bikini that she so perfectly rocks. This Rustic Rectangular Wall Mirror by Kenroy Home ($116.61) has similar textures to the one in Bella’s picture. Crafted with a natural birch bark finish, the mirror boasts small branches that frame pieces of natural birch bark to fit any rustic, lodge, bohemian or farmhouse decor. Measuring 96.5cm by 71cm, the mirror comes with four D-rings that are pre-mounted, so hanging it will be a breeze.
LOTS by IKEA
YouTuber Amalie Bladt serves us looks with yet another mirror selfie – but this time, it’s with this modern three-piece mirror. This is a step up from the regular plain full-length mirror that is commonly found in homes across the island. It looks like three square mirrors joined together, nothing special right? But the divisions create lines that kind of ‘chop’ the image into sections, creating an intriguing effect. Find yours at IKEA with their LOTS mirror. Sold at $19.90 for a set of four 30cm by 30cm mirrors, the pieces are perfect for decorating because you can play with placement. You can either place them vertically to get a mirror like Amalie’s or horizontally, to give your room a wider appearance. Either way, you get to flex your creativity by customising your mirror. You can even make a bigger mirror by adding as many squares you want or place the pieces in unexpected places for a unique shape or pattern. IKEA also provides double-sided tape to help you with your decorating. When it comes to being creative, they’ve got you covered.
