If you're looking to add a colorful, whimsical touch to your home decor, then it's time to go shopping for a mosaic mirror frame! Mosaic mirror frames come in a wide variety of styles, from colorful pieces made of hodgepodge decorative elements to themed mirrors made from an assemblage of sea shells or bottle caps. Read on to discover the most attractive styles of mosaic mirror frames available and where to find them.

Colorful Mosaic Glass Mirror

If you're looking to add a burst of color to your home, check out the Hope for Peace Mosaic Glass Mirror from Novica, a partner store affiliated with National Geographic. This rectangular mirror features a large plain center, which is outlined by a border made from hundreds of individual pieces of different colored glass. The entire piece is outlined in a wrought iron frame. In addition to being beautiful, your purchase supports the artisans of Vidri Arte, and a personal artisan story card is included with your mirror. Each mirror is handmade, so no two are exactly alike! This mirror would look especially lovely in a hallway or bathroom.

Sophisticated Oval Shell Monterey Mosaic Mirror

Not all mosaic mirrors are made with hundreds of pieces of different colored materials, and the Monterey Mosaic Mirror is a wonderful example. Available online at Lumens, this large oval mirror features a border of hundreds of pieces of uniform pen shell, which is an ivory shell with taupe and brown accents. Textural without looking too pieced together, the mirror also features an inner and outer dark brown border to emphasize the beauty of the shells. Whether you're looking to add to your existing ocean-themed decor or you just want something a little worldly looking to decorate your hallway, this mirror is the perfect choice. Since it's framed in neutral colors, it will complement a wide range of interior stylings.

Stately Oversized Gold and Bronze Mosaic Mirror

A mosaic mirror may be made of many pieces, or it may be composed of only a few. In the case of the Mosaic Mirror from Horchow, simplicity wins. This oversized mirror, perfect for a library or a living room, features a large geometric centerpiece outlined in a gold leaf frame and bronze buttons. On the outside, the mirror is hugged by a mosaic compilation of other smaller mirrors, which form a subtle border. Finally, the outer edge of the mirror is framed again in gold and bronze. The result is a captivating piece that looks uniform from a distance, but is spectacularly multifaceted upon closer look. It would look especially wonderful in a room with dark walls or rich mahogany furniture.

Oversized Coco Stick Mosaic Mirror

Leave it to World Market to find the most interesting decor items on the market! Their Oversized Coco Stick Mosaic Mirror is no exception. The frame is woven from hundreds of tiny coco sticks brought together in squares of varying geometric patterns. The result looks similar to a pretty tiled floor, only more intricate. The soft brown color of the coco sticks is complementary to a wide range of decor, though this mirror would look especially lovely in a modern or Southwestern styled home.
