Va, Va, Va-netian!

Oh how I love a dramatic Venetian mirror.  It adds instant feminine glam and a major "WOW" factor.

In 16th century Italy, artisans expertly created Venetian mirrors for royalty and noblemen.  At that time, they were extremely expensive and rare.

When decorating with a Venetian mirror, or any mirror for that matter, remember that placing a mirror in the proper spot can make a room feel more spacious and airy.  Placing a mirror opposite a window is a great idea, as the mirror will reflect the light and create a brighter, more inviting atmosphere.

A Venetian mirror is such a statement piece that it can often be placed alone on a wall.  The beauty and detail of the mirror creates an instant conversation piece. As a lover of all-things-glamorous, a Venetian mirror equals instant domestic bliss for me.  What are your thoughts on Venetian mirrors- too dramatic or just your style?
