Whimsical Tromp l'Oeil tented entry

The designer Tracy Murdock in her whimsical Tromp l'Oeil tented entry at a beach house.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A showstopping paint treatment! The circus-like stripes here put a brand new spin on what usually involves clowns, tightropes and tiny cars. Sure, it's common to associate circus tent stripes with yellow and blue color schemes; however, the black and white gives it a classic, designer spin.
Kristy Woodson Harvey and Beth Woodson added this to Tented Ceilings Raise the Bar
Talk about making a statement! In a living room or dining room, this look would be fantastic. The best part is that it can be created with inexpensive paint, making it a more cost-effective option than yards of fabric. This look would be precious in a playroom as well.
