“Ask yourself what the purpose of installing a mirror is…
Indeed, figuring out the balance of style and function is core to any piece that can have both, like a mirror. A good thought experiment is to consider how you will feel with a very decorative piece after you’ve had it for a few years.

Italian Style Green Mirror
This mirror is made in the Italian modern style with a clear mirror overlay and colorful glass background.
These mirrors were very popular in Europe during the 1950s. During that time Italy and France were the largest suppliers of decorative glass and mirror, so much of the wall mirror design design came from there also!

Art Deco Colorful Mirror
Perhaps the most popular style of colorful wall mirrors are Art Deco wall mirrors. Traditionally, these pieces were made with the jewel tones (deep blue, pink, gold, and emerald) popular during the 1920s era.
During the 1980s, these Art Deco style pieces had a resurgence in popularity, too!
