You have entered a small, untidy atrium. Behind you is the mirror, looking somewhat less substantial from this side. To the east, you see what appears to be a broom closet.
It appears that you have just missed a party. To one side you see an elegant buffet table once spread with a vast array of food; aside from a few small cakes (and a vegetable dip for the health conscious), only intriguing crumbs remain. Also on the table is an empty teapot, lying on its side in a puddle of cooling tea. There are a number of board games and packs of cards scattered about the room, and various other oddments have been tossed at random into dark corners in lieu of actually cleaning up.
