Grillwork Mural

This was our solution for an asymmetrical wall, which was difficult to accessorize. The grillwork illusion appears three dimensional.

Hi April, the background wall was a neutral beige/cream. I painted the grillwork pattern in a transparent antique gold, ragging it off as I went. This makes a more interesting texture and softer effect than solid paint. I probably increased the contrast in the picture, but the actual effect is very soft; it's a bedroom, after all. It was a way of having something of interest on this asymmetrical wall, and not trying to compete with a bay view out the windows.

An asymmetrical wall can make hanging art tricky. A mural uses the space well.

Antiqued metallic grillwork provided finish behind this bed, where the odd wall shape made hanging art difficult.

The illlusion of grillwork provides lyrical interest on a wall which is awkward for hanging framed artwork. The paint is subtly metallic and antiqued.
