Tucked away in a quiet New York City neighborhood, dwarfed by the apartment buildings that have grown up around it, is Amster Yardtoddler pillow cases, a garden created by interior decorator James Amster in the 1940s and 50s. It contains an extraordinary optical illusion: the mirror Amster’;s mentor?Elsie de Wolfe suggested he install to make the garden look bigger, which Amster framed inside an arch. It made for a genius collaboration.

The mirror arch truly expands the space, giving a sense of lush gardens beyond. Vines disguise the mirrors edges, obviating any hint that it is a mirror. You would only know its a mirror once you get close.

Thinking of our own love of mirrors to “;expand”; our space, we can imagine using mirrors cleverly in a garden, and found some examples.

This mirror in a dorset garden was made by attaching a long mirror to a wall and adding a lead design that mimics a wrought iron gate.

The trick is to make sure the mirror’;s edges are hidden in foliage or architecture, as Amster so cleverly did. The edges of this mirror totally gives it away; were it concealed by foliage, it would in fact made the garden more expansive.
