A mural is any piece of artwork painted or applied directly on a wall, ceiling or other permanent surfaces. Trompe L'oeil murals "trick the eye" because they are painted to appear 3-D.
Some of my favourite Trompe L’oeil Murals in Private Homes and Businesses
BEFORE: Brand new bedroom walls--my blank canvas.
AFTER: Bedroom turned into a locker room for the boy's favourite team. Notice the stone wall, open locker and the sticky note.
BEFORE: Same Facility as above. Other end of the hall.
AFTER: Gorgeous red velvet drapes fall next to an opening in the stone wall revealing a Tuscan hillside.
BEFORE: Recreation Room in a Grimsby LTC Facility.
AFTER: The Rec Room becomes a locker room with old time jerseys and one of their own! Notice how convincing the open lockers and brick wall look!
BEFORE: Boring Teacher Office doors in Glendale School Library.
AFTER: Grand. Historical. Interesting. Notice the depth created and the illusion of red brick broken open.
BEFORE: Dated bathroom with corner tub
AFTER: Fabulous and romantic. The painted ledge along the top and the pillars really give the illusion of an opening.
BEFORE: Wall in the common room at St. Catharines Extendicare. The existing kitchen is too small to house the stove.
AFTER: Looks more like a kitchen. The wall is STILL FLAT despite the realism of the cupboards, counter and window.
BEFORE: Recreation Room at Northland Pointe. It's a room where residents play games, do crafts and montessori activities.
AFTER: The "Back Deck/Shed" part of the New Rec Room that now has a kitchen, laundry room and tool bench on other walls in the room. Notice how spacious it now feels!
BEFORE: A pseudo store for Residents at Foyer Richelieu. Part of their wonderful Montessori program.
AFTER: Looking much more like an actual Boutique.
A mural in your home can add joy and a sense of more space.
