Venice Carnevale Photo Gallery

If only I could wear a mask at this ball in Venice.



Does this look like fun to you?
The costumes are elaborate and all 18th Century.
BTW
my favorite century.

Ahhhhhhh.....
If only I could time travel!!!



The Winged Lion of St. Mark

This yearly ball in Venice 
would be the closest I will ever come to actual time travel.

Just imagine the fine memories this young girl 
will have of this special evening!!!

If given the opportunity 
would YOU go to  
The Tiepolo Ball in Venice?

I wouldn't miss out 
on that glorious opportunity.
NO WAY!!

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
