Vanguard Properties gets a Facelift

wine country muralThis is a project I worked on that involved redecorating and updating a leasing office for an apartment complex. We did the wall, a mural or two and a grand marble fountain. Vanguard just bought a new property that is in need some updating- Wilshire Village will soon be the Tuscany Village

The dull cream walls come to life with a wash of Tuscany colors and the white trim gets some black paint.

The painted Tuscany mural gets starting… the grape vines are finished and waiting for install.  They are made of wire and wrapped permeated plaster gauze, then painted with arcylic paint. Realistic silk grape leaves and grapes are added for the full Tuscany illusion.

Office Interior
A lot of work was done in this room, the kitchen was taken out, networking added, new carpet, new textured walls and ceiling, and now… more color, some fancy desks and a layered window treatment that brings it all together.
Mike and Casey feel right at home!
