This Week's Ideabook on Houzz: Trend Watch - Sunburst Mirrors~

This week over at Houzz.com, I'm talking about Sunburst Mirrors...

As we head into the cooler and shorter days of autumn and winter, we can still bring a touch of summer into our decor. And what better way to do that than with a fun and unique accessory?

Sunburst mirrors are a perfect way to add a subtle reference to summer while staying on trend with what's "hot" in decor today. And yes, I am trying to be punny when I say that. But all joking aside, sunburst mirrors can be used equally well in all sorts of spaces from traditional to contemporary. They can look sophisticated or whimsical, retro-inspired or modern. Check out these examples, and then go grab yourself a pretty mirror and let the sun shine in!

I wonder how something like that would work above a TV between two bookcases. I'm not very good at imaging the final outcome in my mind's eye so I am just not sure... its a sloped ceiling which leaves a big empty blank space on the wall bringing the room lower which we definitely don't need (small house!!) Its a thought though. Okay... I'm going to do it. What do you think?
