I am not one for practical jokes, but as a designer I do love a good visual trick or two. That’s what I am seeing lately -trompe l’oeil (French for “deceive the eye”) looks from fashion to decor that marries whimsy and humor with style and design.
I’m seeing trompe l’oeil looks in :
Piet Hein Eek’s wallpaper makes scrap wood gorgeous!
Koziel’s antique shutter wallpaper doubles your fun.This paper gives you pause- is there or isn’t there a window there?
What can a say?- Christain LaCroix for Designers Guild. LOVE.LOVE. LOVE
Need architectural detail? Berard has it.
Deborah Bowness is a Genius with fool the eye looks
Everyone loves books Right?
I ♥ Bauke Knottnerus’ trompe l’oeil curtains, they can be on a window in a doorway fooling the eye into believing there’s more space thanks to the perspective.
Koziel’s Decorative film provides the view and the ornate ironwork.
