Mirror Mirror on the Wall

One of my followers recently wrote,  "I LOVE sunburst mirrors but I'm not sure where to hang one.  Can you make some suggestions?"
Think unexpected places and your mirror will take on a new life!  Although sunburst mirrors are classic, they're no longer confined to formal spaces, thanks to all the new translations of this timeless design element.
 I placed this mirror above a table in a multi-purpose room I designed for the Bellarmine Showhouse.  By day, the room is used as an office with a very functional desk.  At night, it converts to a cozy guest bedroom and the table becomes a great vanity!  Notice the scale of the mirror. A smaller size would not have had the same effect. I often play with proportion and scale to create a more interesting space.  This room was quite small but with bold use of citrus green grass cloth on the walls and key accessories like the sunburst mirror, it became large with visual impact!

The silver finish on this sunburst is far from stuffy!  How beautiful would it be above a mirrored chest in a foyer?















I love the use of stained wood and small scale of the mirror glass.
Consider this your statement piece above a sofa in a den.
