I am sure I have said before that I don’t just love starburst mirrors, I swoon over them. According to Centsational Girl, “Sunburst mirrors date back to Louis XIV, known as the “Sun King”, and as the story goes, he used to stare into his sunburst mirror each morning to see his face in the center of the sun’s rays. This decorative mirror became popular yet again in the mid-twentieth century, and in the last few years, they are everywhere.” Well, count me in the everywhere! I just love the sparkle they seem to bring to a space. So you guessed it; today we are talking Starburst Mirrors.

My Starburst Mirror
On of my prize finds is my starburst mirror in my living room. It was a yard sale find. I loved it when I snagged it for $10.00 (yep) that day and I love it still. In the Shop My Style: Living Room post, my mirror stands out as the jewel of the room. Starburst mirrors can shine anywhere in your home. Over the bed, over a fireplace or between two windows.
So whether you call them Starburst or Sunburst Mirrors, small or large, silver or gold, metal or metallic finished, vintage or vintage inspired I just love them. That’s if you can find them.
Horchow Starburst Mirrors although beautiful, are typically quite expensive and SOLD OUT!
What I don’t like is the price tag usually associated with these jems. These mirrors can start in the hundreds and easily get into the thousands for the larger ones.
