This is a close up of a beautiful column. I think it will get framed eventually.
I know pictures like this have been mass produced, but
mine is the real deal, so I love it.
Ideally I'd make this part of a grouping with some charcoal sketches and an antiqued mirror, all leaning against one another on a mantel. I'd add some type of a funky colored vase to add an unexpected punch of color.
The Venetian influences from across the water come through loud and clear.
Notice the guy banging on the bell. I love the touch of humor.
Stunning waterways are always inspiring. My husband and I sat here and had one of the local beers while watching the kayakers go by in the distance.
I think this ironwork design is worth repeating, either on an indoor or outdoor railing.
Yep, that's a balcony way up there. It screams Romeo and Juliet to me, even though we were in the wrong country for that.
More gorgeous columns. I think the dream house is going to have to have a column.
That is, if I can convince my (usually open-minded) husband that a room is not complete without one. I don't think that is going to be any easy sell.
Any tips out there on how to pull that off?!?
Not practical, but I still like it. Although maybe for a fountain...
The first pharmacy in Europe, and they did it right!
A beautiful fresco.
An old aerial city map - you can see how the walls contained the city.
This would make a good souvenir but I don't think it was for sale. :)
I hope you enjoyed our quick trip together!
