Friend's apartment: aquisitions

Do you remember a few months ago when I posted my friend Henry's apartment (here). Well, he has a new addition: a 6' tall antique venetian mirror! I thought it was so beautiful I just had to share it. Unfortunately he's moving soon and will have to abandon all of his hard work.

I love the mirror, and I particularly love the trimwork on his walls. What is that called - the name is escaping me - when there is small trim in the middle of the walls? Anyway, the contrast of the white and blue is great.

I love all his work. So sad that he has to move.

The tiffany blue and white is so crisp, and that mirror is perfect. The scale of it makes it even better. What a wonderful place. Is he sad about leaving or excited to have a new space to work on?

He's moving to NYC, so he's pretty excited! I'm sure he's looking forward to another small space and making it his own!
I'm jealous that he got that mirror at a local store that's a sort of fleamarket, ms. pixie's - i'm sure the mirror was a STEAL!

I thought that mirror looked familiar. I was in Pixies this past Sunday and saw your friend purchasing the mirror. Small world. Love the Tiffany blue!

I hope that Henry will lure you to move to NY!
( I love the color of his space, looks very "Tiffany" esque)

I love that mirror!

It looks just like the one in John Currin's "Thanksgiving" painting.

Lucky guy...moving to one of the greatest cities in the U.S AND with a beautiful mirror that he could look into daily and gloat over his wonderful happenstance...in the words of Countess De Lave from the Women..oh l'amour l'amour!
