Jerry Calote of Calote Decorative Arts designed and painted the chain of St.Tropez restaurants in the greater San Diego, California area. Using a combination of trompe l'oeil,
decorative wall art, cloud ceilings, faux finishes, and fine art, Bettencourt Decorative Arts created the "Provence" attitude of this famous French seacoast resort.
