We can tell your story in a custom designed and hand-painted mural bringing your vision to life.

Murals

A mural is more than just imagery, it’s a story and it’s your story! At Sylvia T. Designs, we have been telling stories through our mural work for more than 20 years in both residential and commercial settings.

We work to take your idea, a concept, or, simply, an inspiration to develop the mural. We start with sketches and an iterative process as we collaborate with you to bring the scene to life. We then take it to scaled, colored drawings before the actual mural painting begins. This allows our clients to know exactly what the end result will be.

Sylvia T Designs can create murals in various themes and styles from classical, Old World, Chinoiserie, nature, children, to anything you can dream up! We utilize various techniques, including the use of glazes to create striking depth and character.

Our murals can complement your space or can become the singular focus your room. If you can imagine it, we can paint it!

One of the main things we do here at Sylvia T Designs is color! It’s in our DNA. Looking for some guidance on color selections for your project? We got you! And this isn’t limited to our decorative arts deliverables on a job, we can help you with color on any part of your project! Where we also excel is with color matching (in fact, we’re unmatched in that regard – pun intended😅)! We’re experts at matching colors, whether standard or custom, with our work. We can take whatever colors your project requires and make a perfect match with the plasters, microcement, lime washes, and mineral paints we use as well as with many other aspects of the decorative arts we deliver (murals, stencils, custom signage, etc.)

Sylvia T Designs is the premier decorative arts firm in the New Orleans and Gulf Coast region. Let us know how can take your colors and make your space a work of art!🎨🖌

Our major project in the French Quarter is fully underway! We are doing extensive work in an historic Creole cottage providing numerous plaster finishes and other decorative elements throughout the home. Here, we are applying the final coat of a beautiful Marmorino plaster in one of the parlors. The texture will soften and the color will lighten as it dries. From there, we be applying a horizontal striping lime wash to finish off this stunning look. Stay tuned!

Here's a shot of the completed mural (please see our previous post) from this luxury “staycation” townhouse in the Warehouse District of New Orleans. Pictured is the center panel, of three, showing St. Louis Cathedral. The owners wanted a fun, New Orleans-themed mural that also takes inspiration from Mardi Gras (left panel) and music (right panel). We also gold leafed the frames around each to give it all some extra pop. Please see our IG story for more on this fun project!

We hit the ground running here at Sylvia T Designs in 2022! Lots of exciting projects to share! Here is an in-progress shot as we got going on a recently completed project in the Warehouse District of New Orleans. This is a terrific staycation townhouse where we delivered a fun, New Orleans-themed custom mural and a cool faux brick breakaway plaster on the façade of the bedroom loft. The latter compliments the walls of the building. Much more on this and other current projects coming soon. Stay tuned!

Here's the last element we want to share from this residential project in New Orleans we did a while back (please see our previous few posts for more)! We created a mural by interpreting an image from a publication that inspired the homeowner. It’s classic imagery of an English Garden Square is a bit wistful along with the individuals bringing a slightly “ghostly” feel. The finishing touch is the frame, which we goldleafed, giving the mural a gallery painting look. Overall, it’s a beautiful and tranquil addition to the home’s guestroom.

Sylvia T Designs is the region’s premier decorative arts firm that, along with many other services, can deliver expert custom mural work. If you can dream it up, we can make it happen, making your space a work of art!

Hey All! Here’s a little more from the mural we delivered in the powder room of a New Orleans residence (see our previous post.) The mural wraps around three walls of the space and boasts a lush, dreamy New Orleans theme. We’ll be sharing a couple more elements we delivered elsewhere in the home soon!

Here’s another spot in the Lakeview, New Orleans residence where we delivered a couple terrific elements. (Please see the striking archway in our previous two posts.) This is from the front powder room. We applied gold leaf to the crown molding. The main feature in the room is the New Orleans-themed mural we painted around three of the walls. You can only see a portion here, but it adds a dream-like quality to the space!

We hope everyone had a very joyous and safe New Year’s! We’re excited for 2021 (aren’t we all?!?) and ready to make your space a work of art!
 
A feature wall or area can transform your residence or business. Grab visitors with your vision, your inspiration, or your brand! Here, we delivered an elegant reception area for a local dentist’s office. We expertly combined paint and plaster to create this flowing and striking reception desk and wall presentation. Thanks to our friend and interior designer. @clairelewisdesigns, for bringing us in on this great project! Click the link in our bio to learn more!
