A masculine oversized bathroom mirror in a beefy frame falls in love with a feminine vanity.
Almost every designer has a signature feature they like to use. Montreal’s Julie Charbonneau combines two — a floating vanity and an oversized bathroom mirror. In one master bath [top], the marble-topped double vanity is cantilevered or floating. What’s most surprising is that it’s mounted over a custom framed mirror which covers a wall the same width as the vanity and reaches from the crown down to the baseboard. Exaggerated size can make a small room appear larger and reflect light. Here, it creates a focal point in a most unusual way. In a second bath, the mirror reflects light from windows across the room. And the soft palette of the room contrasts with the espresso wood stained frame. Mirror mounted sconces [above] provide a visual break within the mirror. Both vanities feature Calcutta marble counters and traditionally styled double cross handle faucets that add elegance and romance.

It’s a beautiful look – I love how the vanity is suspended right on top of the mirror! But like all floating vanities, you really need a room large enough to have alternative storage elsewhere, like the wall of storage in the example. Otherwise, where would you keep all your stuff? Great pics! Thanks for sharing.
The mirror is super cool… But is the vanity in a living room? Does the bathroom have a fireplace and fancy chairs? Seems like there’s a lot in this room to make it seem large… Like square footage. haha 😉
I love the concept, though. Very unique.
I’m in love. Sigh. How elegant.
