painters who attempt fresco, iLia stands amidst the very few talents who
actually breathing life back into the medium... There is a modern

LA Design Services specializes in two manifestations of Trompe
L'oeil ("To fool the eye" French) -
"Trompe L'oeil Murals" and "Ornamental Trompe
"Trompe L'oeil Murals" - Trompe L'oeil is an
organic part of mural painting and depending on a skill of an
artist elements of Trompe L'oeil are used in the majority of
the murals. Steps in creating of Trompe L'oeil Mural are
similar to a regular mural, please refer to the Mural Section
of this site for the steps, procedures and samples of mural
and/or trompe l'oeil mural commission.
"Ornamental Trompe L'oeil" - unlike Trompe
L'oeil Mural where trompe l'oeil elements are used to enhance
the illusion of depth and to erase the transition between the
real and painted world, Ornamental trompe L'oeil is dedicated
to alter the appearance of the real objects adding depth,
relief, ornamentation to otherwise flat surfaces. Most popular
areas of ornamental trompe l'oeil are beams, niches, friezes,
ceiling and wall perimeters and such. I LA Design services
offers variety of solution to cost effective enhancements of
space and objects (including furniture) through ornamental
Creating Trompe L'oeil:
Development of the layout and design
- BW rendering/drawing is produced for the client for
the initial approval of the trompe l'oeil designs and
positioning of elements. When all elements of the project become
clear to both parties, final rendering and/or scaled
color study is developed and delivered to the client for the
Final Approval. (When necessary, images of the "work
in progress" are also posted in CLIENT CENTER.)
- after the final rendering is approved by the client we begin
painting of the commissioned work. Painting is done on
location therefore setup and scaffolding charge may apply.
