The challenge: to make an exterior scene come alive inside a room.

The entire room in this luxury Lakeview condo is a trompe l’oeil representation of an English Garden. It is complete with a sculpted serpentine fountain, trellis, stone walls, and a balcony overlooking the garden.

We painted the trompe l’oeil patio to match the actual floor. This was difficult, but rewarding to accomplish. It was very effective in helping to carry the illusion.
