The most common use of
murals or decorative art for residential
interior applications is "trompe l'oeil"
(trick of the eye) paintings to create the
feeling of open space. An image is created
such as a window or door opening and
typically illustrated with landscape art to
"open up" a room and create a view. Other
functions of decorative art in interiors
include custom painted ceiling art,
decorative flourishes such as floral art
around the border of walls, and custom
"faux" wall finishes like Venetian Plaster.
One can choose an option of having their
murals painted on thin wood panel that is
attached to the wall and framed. This
quality allows the art to be moved or
transferred in the case their residence is
also transferred. More daring owners may
consider to create murals on the exteriors
of their residences. Integration of the
artwork to the architecture of the residence
and the exterior environment is the upmost
goal of Calote Decorative Arts.
