There are few things in life more glamorous than a venetian mirror. They are super easy to decorate with as they don’t have frames, meaning they go with just about any color scheme. Their beveled and curved edges are the work of true artisanship.

A Quick History of Venetian Mirrors

Since the 16th century, the Venetians have been masters at perfecting mirrors and today they are celebrated for their elegant and detailed designs. They introduced a new method for mirror-making, choosing to use lead glass for its clarity, thus crowning Venice the epicenter of mirror production. Centuries ago, glass mirrors were a luxury only afforded to the wealthy upper class. What’s more, the mirrors were quite small at only 40 inches (100 cm) wide! It is said that a noble once traded an entire field for just one luxurious Venetian mirror…

While Venetian mirrors are still known to be quite expensive these days, I’ve rounded up twelve gorgeous Venetian-style mirrors each of which cost less than $500. Keep scrolling for twenty total images of my favorite venetian mirror inspiration!

Decorating with Venetian Mirrors

Venetian mirrors are most popular in the bathroom, though they can bring glamour to just about any room. I think they work best in front of a solid colored wall like grey, white or pink, but they can work on a patterned wall as well, as seen above. Pairing two twin mirrors together is a lovely idea for double the elegance. Marble is a popular choice for the sinks below the mirrors. Add wall lighting on either side of the mirror to reflect the light into the room. Another popular place for a Venetian mirror is above the fireplace for all to see!

    Lovely assembly! I chose an antique Venetian mirror for a space between two windows in a living room with gray silk draperies. The mirror has golden Murano glass accents, and the wall color is a restrained gold. It is gorgeous and reflects light and sparkle from a crystal chandelier into the room. It’s a piece of jewelry for a room.
