A Quick Design History: Starburst Mirror


Starburst mirrors fall into the oh-so-rare category of timelessly stylish design! I love the glam, reflectivity, and sense of architecture they bring a space and I like to use them in dining rooms, bedrooms, entries, and well, pretty much any space. Starburst mirrors have been popular since the 1790's after the French Revolution, as a use for all of the gilded religious auroras torn from churches and palaces {the nerdy side of me just loves when history and decor collide!} But actually bullseye, convex mirrors have been in fashion since the Venetian Republic. 

These days you can find starburst mirrors at all price points and in all kinds of styles so here is a round up of my favorites! 





I am in love with the raindrop version! 
Which one is your favorite?
