Tile Illusion

Illusory Armenian tiles draw attention to the beautiful tight curve of a narrow arched window in Jerusalem.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lisa Frederick added this to Tile Throws Archways a Curve
Think it's tile? Look closer. Painted trompe l'oeil detailing simulates ceramic in this slim archway. You could also achieve a similar look with stencils or even decals.

Patterns can be used to emphasize architectural details, such as this gorgeous tight window arch. These are trompe l'oeil tiles.

A narrow arch is the most beautiful, but real tiles would be impossible on the curve. These are painted illusions of Armenian tiles.
