Faux Finished Walls

Faux painting is a term used to describe a wide range of decorative painting techniques. From the French word "fake", faux painting began as a form of replicating materials such as marble and wood with paint, but it has come to encompass many other decorative finishes for walls and furniture.

Faux painting is a way for people to customize their walls in order to transform and compliment their environment. Wall treatments go from an old-world atmosphere to a contemporary elegance. Fauxed finished walls give you depth of field, which can open up the smallest of rooms.

A room can be fauxed with a simple one-color finish or with multiple colors. One can then layer decorative details such as scrollwork, stripes, whimsical swirls, circles, diamonds, stonework or almost anything you can imagine. Faux is not only defined to walls, but to furniture, cabinets, faceplates on granite backsplashes and columns.

 
Commissioned Canvas

Stretched canvas art is another good way to express one's personality. With a piece of art one is able to select an image that is sentimental and or makes one feel good. By commissioning an artist you obtain an original piece of art, which contains a depth and richness unable to be reproduced in prints. You are also able to create non-standard sizes in canvas shapes. Having a canvas piece of art also means you are able to move its location.

 
Children's Rooms

Children's rooms are the most fun. Finding a theme that brings out a child's interest and personality is very entertaining. How exciting to bring these special interests to life in a big way on their walls. These murals can be small vignettes to large multiple walls and ceilings.

 
Trompe L'Oeil

Trompe L' Oeil is French for "trick the eye". This is an art technique involving extremely realistic imagery in order to create the optical illusion that the depicted objects appear in three dimensions, instead of actually being a two dimensional painting.
