Atlanta’s Stacy Milburn is an abstract mirror artist whose work adds light, color and something unexpected to a space.

The company: Atlanta-based Stacy Milburn Studio started in 2014. Milburn uses many part-art, part-science techniques to create her versatile mirror art.

The artist: Milburn grew up in Columbus and graduated from Converse College (SC), where she studied international business. After graduation, she lived in London for two years where she found her passion for interior design and historic preservation. She moved New York and pursued a degree in interior design at Parsons (now the New School). In 1999, she moved to Atlanta and worked for Lori Tippins, an interior designer who encourage her to test her creativity. Milburn now works as lead designer at Modify Home in Smyrna.

What is popular: For color, blues. Anything from a stylish navy to a soothing beach glass blue. For location: powder room mirrors or tall panels over bedside tables. A 20-inch by 40-inch framed panel is around $1,100. A 30-inch-by-40-inch powder room vanity mirror is $1,600.

Other favorites: White mirror as opposed to white subway tile in a kitchen. Also mirror over abstract black and white photos of children, teens and beloved pets. Framed 20-inch by 20-inch works are around $500. Milburn refers to this as “etching the present in the past.”

Fun (or unusual) request: Create a large-scale mirrored piece of a vintage black and white scene of old Buckhead. Milburn added pops of color to add a more contemporary esthetic to the work, which is in the lobby of a renovated historic Buckhead office building. The work is pictured below.

Where to buy: In Atlanta, at Modify Home, 3691 Atlanta Road SE, in Smyrna (, and Waiting on Martha, 4300 Paces Ferry Road (
