The sunburst mirror has a fascinating history that dates right back to the 17th Century. During the 17th Century the Catholic Church began to use monstrances above the alter these elaborate designs were made up of decorative stands surrounded by glided rays of sunshine demonstrating what we know today as the sunburst style. These monstrances were often found in churches in Italy featured above the altar. The very first mirrors were very small and convex and it wasn’t until the late 17th Century that mirror production became more established and mirrors eventually increased in size.
These mirrors work exceptionally well in entrance hallways; try positioning above a console table to create a striking focal point that will instantly catch the attention of guests. The mirror would look equally at home featured on a plain wall; they offer fantastic bursts of light therefore if you have a narrow and long entrance hallway a sunburst can help create the illusion of increased space.
The mirror then is space...and it is function.. and a good interior design idea is to look at the mirror in a living room. If the mirror is above the fireplace, ask why it is there. Is it for function or decoration or another reason or probably a mix of all three. In a living room, you may be unwittingly using the mirror as a central decorative object but you are not bringing out the full effect. This may be because of the mirror itself or general bad interior design planning for your room. In interior design, the purpose of the room is an important concept. The question of having a definite purpose for your room arises when you are looking at your room and its space. The mirror must have a specific purpose and this purpose can be brought out through the way the mirror or mirrors merges with the color tones in the room as well as the overall space and other furniture of the room.
Mirrored Wall Art - Hanging a large piece of mirrored wall art behind the mantelpiece is another easy way to add sparkle and visual interest. There are many different styles of wall art, many of which incorporate mirrors or mirrored pieces. For a traditional look, choose a piece that combines wood and mirrors. Or, for a sleek contemporary accent piece, select wall art that combines mirrors and metal. Mirrored wall art has the advantage of adding an element of design to the wall, which can help turn a simple fireplace and mantel into an eye-catching focal point.
