Wall finish: Soft-drifted, 2-color, faux-marble glaze. The illusion of large blocks of stone enhance the effect of the drifted marble motif. Above the fireplace: A keystone and structural elements from the existing fireplace structure were incorporated into a 1-point perspective trompe l'oeil stone facade.
Feature Wall: In keeping with the central theme of the arches, blocks and keystones, we designed and painted a three panel opening with a projecting stone frame. The soft, summery sky was created with a three-color glaze.
The stained glass window effect is a painted replica of the same "real" stained glass window found in the clients' master bath. Twelve colors were matched and blended to achieve it¹s transparent effect. The hand-painted branches and curious bluebird added the final touch which created for her a "notion of nature".
