Trompe l’oeil niche and faux finishing

Faux wallpaper and niche mural, before and after painting

My client had some remodeling completed in her home and wanted to keep her existing wallpaper but it was no longer manufactured. So I took on the task of duplicating the wallpaper in the three rooms that were affected. In this room you can see the swirls above, the striped wainscoting below, and the hydrangea chair rail that I painted to match the existing wallpaper. Rather than duplicate hundreds of hydrangeas on the upper portion of the wall, we decided that I would paint two trompe l’oeil niches with vases. One holds hydrangeas that match the wallpaper, and the other holds lilacs.

Have any comments?
