Trompe L'Oeil

What is Trompe L'Oeil? French for "foot the eye." A two-dimensional representation that is so naturalistic that it looks actual or real (three-dimensional.)

A style of painting in which architectural details are rendered in extremely fine detail in order to create the illusion of tactile (tangible) and spatial qualities. This form of painting was first used by the Romans thousands of years ago in frescoes and murals.

Shown in the picture:
Interior designer Marcia Geoghan developed this elegant dining space with custom touches. Kitty provided the hand-painting design of Geoghan's baronial cartouche on the front of the corner-pleated black tablecloth, taking the design from a silver tea service.


Subtle texture on the walls lends motion and interest. The deisgner, Kitty, created a crosshatch pattern with paint using several layers.


Kitty provided the custom touches for this designer that was featured in Better Homes & Gardens Window & Wall Ideas, Spring 2003.
Sometimes wallpaper just isn't the right choice. Earthworks in Frederick decided that they wanted something completely custom designed for their Home Garden Center. This design was used all over the main showroom and features the dotted areas with beautiful flowers. The pattern resembles what wallpaper can do without all the seams.
