Walk-in closet mural girl’s mural

This mural was so much fun to design.  SO girly.  I worked with Sophia and her mom choosing colors, dresses, purses, shoes, boots, boas, crystal chandeliers etc..


Deciding how to display everything was tricky until I came up with the faux shelving idea.  I separated the walls with cubbyholes to hold all the fun and color items.  Hats, hat boxes, jewelry, scarves, gloves, boots, coats, shoes, etc.


The trompe l’oeil dressing room was painted around the vanity dresser.  The top photo has the vanity in place but if moved there is a cute monogrammed rug to fill the space.


While I was painting this adorable mural the horrible tragedy at the Boston Marathon had occurred.  I decided to add some Boston representation–may be subtle but meaningful without changing the intention of the mural.
