Faux Painting by Degage – The Decorative Arts People


Faux Painting by Degage offers impressive alternatives to conventional colors and wall coverings, as this sensational foyer and staircase shows. Rather than highlighting the walls with solid paint or standard wallcovering, the application of fine art painting has transformed this space into a majestic setting among the trees with a view of the landscape. The height of this grand entrance was further emphasized by the vertical nature of tall and narrow trees that appear to stretch to the ceiling and beyond. In this particular case, the walls have been painted in “grisaille,” an art painting technique in which the artist used a monochromatic palette of different shades of umber to bring out the depth of the landscape. Degage’s scope of work ranges from artificially painted furniture and walls to detailed trompe l’oeil murals, which are ideal for expanding small rooms. They have enabled homeowners to turn every room in their home into one with a view – whatever that view may be. Degage
