Accentuate your mantel piece. With your statement black framed mirror. Just like this one, from our Neptune Buckingham range.  In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang are represented by the colours black and white, for darkness and light. Opposite forces like these, really complement one another and unite. Go juxtaposed.
