A problem wall becomes a beautiful view.

This was another problem wall.  The client
didn't like her hall to the master bedroom.  It had a concave
wall she couldn't hang anything.  Using her Italian
ceramic birdbath a new stone wall with a window was painted to
create a beautiful view.
A few more doves were painted to complete the look.

Corpus Christi Home

The owners wanted a Hacienda look for their dining room. The walls are a warm golden brown glaze over  distressed skip troweled walls. Decorative painting was added to two doorways and below the chair rail to give the room a sophisticated spanish flair.

Trompe l'oeil Niche

A wall that was too curved to hang a painting became a perfect painted niche complete with a decorative vase and books.  Some outgoing letters lay on the shelf ready to be mailed.

Bringing Nature into a Kitchen

This client wanted to bring the outdoors in.  The walls were glazed in two soft greens.  A garden gate was painted to invited you outdoors.  Notice the tile floor continued on into the "garden".  Branches with birds nesting in teacups added whimsy and tied nature to kitchen.
