Faux is a French word meaning “false”. Faux finishes are painterly techniques for creating the illusion of various materials where they are not. With skillful application, new construction becomes aged, steel door look like wood, concrete columns become marble and cold boring rooms take on warmth and character.
With a broad collection of faux finish techniques, styles, materials and colors you are no longer restricted to live with what is. Let us help you find out what might be and bring it to life for you. It is not a lie it is just Faux.
Trompe l’oeil is another French word meaning, “to fool the eye”. Skillful mural painting can create depth where there is none, windows in solid walls, and create environments in you home. As small as a mouse hole in the base-board or enveloping an entire room murals can be used to enhance any space.
As the future mural owner you are involved in every step of design and application. Scale drawings, design sketches and color renderings keep your vision intact as we move your mural from concept to the reality on the wall. If you plan on moving and still want a mural they can be painted on seamless muslin and be applied and removed like wallpaper to move with you.
Designing and painting for theater is actually a form of story telling. Crafting an environment for theatrical productions, film and theme parks require an understanding of the story being told. Sets, backdrops (murals on fabric) and the placement and movement of production elements require careful planning and attention to detail to invite the audience / guests into the story being told. If you are looking for a design team with enthusiastic reviews and extensive design / art direction experience, look no further.
With design, paint (faux & mural), and production experience from local professional theaters to 13 years with Walt Disney Imagineering, Disney Stores, and Disneyland we understand excellence in storytelling and quality in production.
