Looking at the mirror in my bedroom last night, I remembered a girl once telling me that she and her family cover their mirrors at night because, according to folklore, the wandering soul of a dreamer can become trapped in them…

That aside, having a mirror in the bedroom is handy, how else are we to coordinate outfits? I know some people can do that with their eyes closed, but I’m that way inclined.

Do you have a mirror in your bedroom? Do you use it?

I HATE mirrors in bedrooms. It's really REALLY bad Feng Shui.
Amen to that!

I have sliding wardrobe with mirrored doors, like in the photo above. I use it a lot and like seeing a full length view of an outfit. I have a quite a small bedroom and think mirrors give the illusion that my room is bigger!
I don't have a mirror in my room.
Neither do I. It's frightening enough for me to look in the bathroom mirror first thing in the morning. Don't want to see me haul myself out of bed - it must be a frightening experience for my husband to witness that apparition.

Haha.

I don't want to constantly catch sight of myself either. Their is a mirror right outside my room in the hall anyway, so it's not necessary.
Sure do.
I need to see how many calories I have put on or lost.
They are a must also for dressing, I mean I can't imagine not having one.
I like the image you've got there jonaj. It reminds me of Kate Winslet's character in the Titanic.

Yes I do in my home back in India. But there isn't any full length mirror in my rented apartment in Australia and I really miss having one
No I don't have mirror in my bedroom. An amusing folklore though.
I do have a mirror in my room but it's on the inside of my wardrobe door. That way, I don't have to look if I don't want to! Think all us girls need a mirror to help with our outfit choices!
I had one there too . . . . and it fell off! Eeeek.

I've never heard that superstition! I love the mirror in my bedroom. As you said, it helps when getting ready.
Yes, I do have A mirror which is for looking at myself when dressed.
I have a walk in robe so no mirrors on cupboards.

Needless to say if it is summer and I keep blinds down to keep room cool, I get outside and colour co-ordination is often wrong!

Yes, always have had. Great for doing 'close up' face cosmetics. And to check ALL is in order b4 walking out the door!
Hubby uses it to make sure his Oxford knot in tie is correct! And combing his hair!
I do have mirrors in the bedrooms. I have also heard the superstition about the soul but I heard that the mirror should just not be right in front of the sleeper.
Hi Gayle.....I've never heard of what you say! Can you explain, please?

I believe it's an old Chinese superstition with the premise that a mirror opposaite your bed as the spirit of your sleeping soul might enter the mirror and become trapped in a world between waking and sleep. So basically the mirror can steal your soul.
I've also heard a lot about it in feng shui where it is said that a mirror opposite the bed as this can bring the energy of a third party into the intimacy of your relationship.
In more practical terms I have heard of children in particular being startled by their own reflection in the few groggy moments after waking.
No,no, no. I know what I look like. *scream*
