Lilac Niche

Trompe l'oeil wall niche is painted like a still life painting with lilacs in a vase. Fleur de lis detail on the trim of this alcove bring that special and classical touch in this Victorian home. The light switch plate is painted to blend in with the background wall, which is all painted to look like wallpaper with white swirls on a beige background on the top, and a chair rail border of hydrangeas.

I painted everything you see in this photo except the existing door trim on the right hand side and the light switches. I painted this wall to match the wallpaper in other areas of the bedroom. The border of this trompe l’oeil niche is painted to match the trim used throughout the home, and the lilacs in the vase are painted to match the drapery.
