Ask Nicole: Help Me Find a Stylish Starburst Mirror on a Shoestring Budget!

March 28, 2011 Advice


The starburst mirror in my living room. (From West Elm, sadly no longer available.)

Q. Hi Nicole! I am interested in purchasing a Starburst convex mirror like the one you have in your living room. Do you have any suggestions on where to find one on a tight budget?

A. Hi Michelle! I love the look of a starburst mirror. I think it’s one of those timeless decorative elements that will never go out of style. Designed to mimic the rays of light emitted by the sun or a star, these mirrors add an instant touch of glamour and light to any space. You can place one as a stand alone like I did in my living room or cluster them in groups for maximum impact. I scoured the net to find 5 great options for you, all priced under $100, plus a fun DIY version you can make yourself if you’re feeling crafty. And if you have the patience for a hunt, try scouring ebay and your local flea markets for a vintage find. Good luck!

Love that DIY one in Rue! It doesn’t get any more creative than that with budget constraints…You’ve really offered an incredible selection, but I swear everytime I step into a TJMaxx/ Marshall’s/ Ross, they’ve got one!

Thanks for the tips Nicole!
