Vintage Sunburst.

I just opened the Ballard catalogue featuring another round of Suzanne Kasler’s beautifully designed and very reasonably priced products for this catalog retailer. The first thing that caught my attention was the collection of Vintage Inspired Sunburst Mirrors.

I have to say, sunburst mirrors get a lot of attention and this desire for attractive mirrored wall art is not waning one burst. I’ve always loved them – especially since my first trip to a Paris flea market where I came across an original Sunburst mirror, considered it for purchase, then decided that shipping this sharp monstrous piece was not worth it! What a mistake! Luckily, manufacturers and designers are also fond of this classic decorative piece (Arteriors Home, Thomas Pheasant, Uttermost, Cooper Classic, etc) and will keep on creating newer versions for those of us who want a little sunshine in our lives. I recently paid a visit to Home Goods and scored a 22″ antique silver sunburst wall mirror and for the time being, placed it over my bed.

My Home Goods find!

I’m a fan of mixing metals so this looks terrific next to my burnished gold bed side tables. PS. The paint color is changing next week. Looks like my find was right on the money at just $24 buckaroos. Later that day I found this beauty on Bond & Bowery.

I love the rich gold and tiered effect, but for $700, I’ll stick with my Goods find.
