For centuries, artisans have been transforming common surroundings into exotic works of beauty, making cramped quarters spacious and barren footage intimate. Painting techniques are used to imitate the appearance of materials such as onyx, marble or malachite, increasing the visual opulence of the residence. When combined with the centuries old art form known as Trompe L’oeil (from French, literally, “fool the eye”,) the mural experience becomes pure entertainment. (Picture; Benton Harbor home)
Because of its scale, a mural transforms a room into a piece of art, with the occupants becoming part of the design, reacting to it and talking about it. A mural can promote a chosen mood, induce relaxation, or, through a surrealistic theme or distorted perspective, create an electric atmosphere. Murals can also inform, or create an illusion, transporting the spirit wherever it cares to travel, giving expression to our dreams and fantasies. (Picture; Fort Meade home)
Snow capped majestic mountains, a rustic vignette of a Tuscan street scene, waves breaking along a tropical shore, ancient castles guarding lush fields … you can live these and other vistas from the comfort of your own home. Spectacular murals add value and beauty to the interior of your home as well as accurately reflecting the scope of your personality and interests.

Subtle effects such as floral decor, wood grain and imitation marble are excellent ways to suggest elegance.
