This is a recent project I just finished in Glen Head NY. The chinoiserie style mural is all handpainted and comprised of a total of 17 separate vignettes. When I was approached by the designer to create this chinoiserie painting I was asked to take into consideration the clients home which was a traditional center hall colonial with very traditional lines and moldings. The Clint did not want the design so filled in as was the case with many wall papers in this classic chinoiserie style. I designed a macquette with a more open design using flowers and bamboo leaves specific to the clients tastes. Since the walls were separated by breaks and moldings I decided to create each mural as it's own chinoiserie panel as opposed to one continuous panoramic mural. The result in a soft grey \ blue background with cream colored leaves and florals is a dreamy soft oriental inspired show stopper when you enter the home.
