A high end classical Italian restaurant in Dallas was looking for a theatrical focal point to anchor the main dining room. I researched late Renaissance decorative forms from our resource library and came up with a trompe l’oeil approach to a mural.

The design is project specific. This is a 8x12 foot Renaissance trompe l’oeil mural to occupy a central wall in a classical Italian restaurant. Using design to build a narrative, tell the story.

During research for the scenographic authenticity, we all felt we were doing an operatic stage set. Invent a reality. Build a narrative.
