Venetian Mirrors

I've had a love affair with Venetian mirrors for as long as I can remember.  I've spent I don't know how many hours imagining having an antique Venetian mirror, a Murano chandelier in my dining room, and a powder room with a wash stand like this in my forever home.  I can't wait to buy our forever home and make these changes, either after I win the lottery, or seriously decide to do something with starting a design company.  Life goals, check.

When you place a Venetian mirror you instantly add glamour, romanticism, and an old world feeling to your space.  Whether that space is your living room, bedroom, or bathroom, you're adding a breathtaking and ornate item to your space.  It's not only attractive, but also gives light to your room by being reflective and bouncing light.  If you get a true antique Venetian mirror it will probably have a floral motif and have an old wooden back.  What I personally love about an antique Venetian mirror is that the mirror isn't as bright and shiny as the new ones of today.  I like that some parts are duller than others, it doesn't immediately scream "look at me".  Of course if you go hunting for a true antique one it won't be perfect.  Expect to find a crack or two in the mirror, but honestly that's what adds to its character.  

 Let's also take note of the detail work on the drapes, the end caps on the drapes, and the iron stretcher on that bench! via  luxe

 i figure there had to have been a better way to hang such a gorgeous mirror other than chain link, and take away the column pedestal sink stand and the other plant holder pedestal and this room might be really really special

 A venetian mirror is the perfect accessory for an ultra feminine little girls room.  I never thought I would be an ultra feminine little girl room lover, but i am.  I admit it.
