Smoke & Mirrors! ...and TV's!

I was in Paris last week and had an amazing time! Finally got the chance to visit some museums that I didn't get to see last fall. This time I got to see Museum d'Orsay, Rodin Museum, and Les Invalides. I also had a great time at Hotel Costes

Right across from the hotel we were staying at, the Westin Vendome, was the Carolina Herrera Boutique. When I walked in I couldn't help but be blown away by a mirrored TV that they had, and the detail of the finished carpentry. I love that it does not look like a TV!

                                                            The center mirror is actually a plasma...

I have had TV's on the brain a lot lately because I am in the middle of redoing my own living room. Even though it is a very common... and I know everyone has a TV installed over the mantle I am having trouble doing this...

So, I decided to bite the bullet and get an ArtScreen by Vutec. It is a TV when you want it, and a painting when you don't. There are two options, the ArtScreen Studio Series, and the ArtScreen. The Studio Series, lets you choose from a dozen or so pieces of art that can be placed in the frame, and with the ArtScreen you can choose from an array of art that they have or submit art of our own. I like the idea of the Artscreen because I can submit any art work I desire... 

If your like me and dislike the thought of a TV above and mantel, another option would be to get a mirrored TV from Seura, just like the one in the Carolina Herrera Boutique -- or an ArtScreen. 

Special thanks to Pat Molettieri from Extreme-AV, for helping me with all of my Audio Visual needs.
