Inspiration...Trompe l'oeil

We were visiting some friends in Las Vegas and went to a wine bar at the top of the M Resort. The elevator lobby was designed with a wall of lemon trees behind a glass wall. When the elevator opened, it revealed...

...a mural of a lemon grove. This mural, or trompe l'oeil style, offers a pretty design element. Trompe l'oeil is a term used to describe a painting rendered in such great detail as to deceive the viewer concerning its reality. This could be a neat design addition to your home.
