This winder view shows some of the oak graining and broken walls. The woodwork needed to be grained as it was too modern looking. I think it makes for a more interesting effect to ignore the corners of the room and let the view move on around the corners. We continued this broken wall onto other walls in the room.
After making and settling on a sketch of ideas from pictures and photographs of towns and castles in the Czech Republic, we painted this mural on a sunroom wall using acrylics. The castle is the owner’s favorite.

This powder room has a gold mica powder ceiling, a light patina on the walls, aged cabinetry, vanity top marbled in Botticino, and shelves full of trome l’oeil books chosen by the home owner from the adjacent library. We custom made the frame and finished it in gold mica powders and toned it. The trompe l’oeil shelf painted onto the mirror, breaks up the mirror nicely.
This view of a Japanese landscape started out as an idea for painting some orchids on the wall and blossomed into this scene. We had fun selecting the orchids and finding arches to emulate for the doorway.
The red coloring on this vase coordinates with the armoire, seen in prior photograph.
This Tuscan scene painted in acrylics fits into this niche over the cabinetry. The perspective took in mind the view as you come down a staircase to make this seem an opening to outside.

We painted a sea shore theme in this loft. Open to the family room below, the sky adds a subtle outdoors feel even without seeing the beach scenes.
MURAL This round window converted nicely into the shore theme. I grained the window and wall around it. The light at the right of the window made for an effective partner in making the shadows seem that they are coming from it. The name of the captain and ship are authentic and sentimental of one of the residence, making a nice touch .
