Nursery Rhyme Mural

This is an old mural that I did last year for a baby nursery. It is one of my favorites. The subtle colors brought such a comfortable feel to the classic nursery rhyme theme.

The Cow Jumped Over the Moon

The Cat and the Fiddle

The Plate and the Spoon

A hand painted wall mural is a great way to add life and imagination to any child's space!

Gray / Silver Tone Master Bedroom

An old customer called me and asked me to do some straight painting. I usually just do the specialty stuff, but I really enjoyed working in her home in the past, so I accepted. She knew exactly the style she was going for. She loved the silver & gray tones in the pictures below from this months Elle Decor magazine. So, after many trips to the paint store and several paint samples, we finally came up with the color combinations that she was happy with.

It is difficult to see, in a picture, the true outcome. Keep in mind that the walls and woodwork were white when I started. I had to start by spot sanding, priming, and then finishing with 2-3 coats of Benjamin Moore's Ebony Slate. The picture really doesn't do it justice. The entire space looks gorgeous in person.
