Murals and Trompe l'oeil
We are here to make your home or office environment truly special. Incorporating family pets, exotic locales, and even wimsicle details such as tucking a portrait of the exteriors of the homes into the murals we paint within them.
Custom Monochromatic Mural, Denver CO
Below are images of a recently completed installation in a circular 3 story staircase and adjoining dining room. The walls are a fantasy Tuscan scene, all in neutral colors. It is deliberately executed in a stylistic hand and limited palette to give the viewer an impression of an antique hand block printed wallpaper mural.

Painted Trompe l'Oeil French Doors and Simple Ceiling Treatment
Drab sliding doors in this bedroom are given a sense of dimension and depth with a painted scene. And yes, even the hinges and door handles are trompe l'oel! The inset ceiling panel in the same room is inexpensively created with Composition curved corners and wood moldings.

Panoramic Mural in the 2000 Junior Symphony Guild Show House, Denver, CO
This room was particularly suited to a panoramic mural as the corners are a 30" radius. The mural was painted on lining paper (in place) to give the impression an antique block printed wallpaper mural might have.
The preliminary sketch (on 4 sheets of paper!) is shown below.
