See the starburst convex mirror in the background? If you look
closely it reveals the artist himself in the reflection.
I’m not sure of the origin of the starburst mirror, but I can confidently say it isn’t a trend that is going away. Let’s look at some of my favorite uses for a starburst mirror.
A large starburst commands attention as a great focal point on a wall over a mantle as shown here is a room designed by my friend Amanda Carol of Amanda Carol Interiors.
My studio partner, Traci Zeller successfully used a trio of starburst mirrors in the guest room she designed in collaboration with Laura Ashley for Domino Magazine in her home.
My friend and Baton Rouge Designer, Rachel Cannon Lewis chose a painted version for this family room project mounted over a painting as an accent rather than the focal point. The starburst mirror adds the perfect element to soften vertical lines of the room and pull the white trim and moldings together visually.
Another great idea is to use a smaller starburst to capture light on a side table
also by Rachel Cannon Lewis.
Rachel again uses the starburst mirror in a foyer grouping to create art interest and light.
Do you have a starburst? I would love to see yours. Feel free to post a picture on my Facebook page here and tell me the origin of your starburst mirror!
I have two starburst mirrors in my home. I have a Worlds Away Starburst mirror over my bed and hand carved Julian Chichester’s Hobbs Mirror in my dining room over a buffet.
Here are some of my favorite starburst mirrors.
