Venetian Mirrors



I have loved Venetian mirrors for sometime. Well really it all started when I visited Jamie Oliver’s restaurant, Fifteen, in London 3 years ago. At the time I didn’t blog so I wasn’t going around snapping random pictures, which now, of course, I wish I would have. The look of a giant Venetian mirror paired with something modern is pure perfection to me. I am in love with the bathroom above. If it were mine I might never ever come out.
I’d really love a big mirror over the fireplace in my living room (like the last picture). And since I have been wanting one for over 3 years I think I might just bite the bullet and go for it. Have any of you purchased a Venetian mirror? If so from where? Any advice?
And if you are looking, like me, here are some places to start:

    Oh I adore venetian mirrors! There is one in a shop downtown that has my name on it. Just not ready to make the plunge yet, think I'll pay my daughter's tuition instead. Darn! Priorities!
    I can't wait to see the one you pick out.

    I have a much smaller version that I bought at a Tuesday Morning. They are so beautiful. I say go for it, but check out Craigslist and ebay first.
