COLOR SELECTION

Diana Johnson Interior Design and Color Selection

Fabulous color choices can change the way you feel in very positive ways. We at Fifth Wall Design Group understand color is a subliminally persuasive force and that there is more to color design than just complimenting your furnishings. Color choice is both a science and an art-form, and we would like to help guide you into selecting the ideal color palette for your home environment. From cozy and warm, to calm and relaxing - color is key and we are there to help.

A little about the way we color consult: The typical on-site color consultation ranges from one to three hours, depending on how many rooms or floors you would like to tackle in one sitting. Diana will be glad to walk through your home and give you a complete personalized color scheme.

We at the Fifth Wall Design Group personally offer a wide range of finish treatments that can be applied to your home.

Trompe-L'oeil
Trompe-L'oeil is an art technique involving extremely realistic imagery in order to create the optical illusion that the depicted objects really exist, instead of being just two-dimensional paintings. The name is derived from French for "trick the eye", from tromper - to deceive and l'oeil - the eye.

Murals
A mural is a painting on a wall, ceiling, or other large permanent surface. Murals date back to prehistoric times. The Caves of Lascaux in southern France are an example. The term became famous with the Mexican "muralista" art movement. Types range from fresco, to oil or water based mediums.

Faux Finishes
Faux Finishing is the preparation and finishing of a surface to imitate the appearance of a natural material such as wood or marble. It is typically used in buildings where the actual matter would be cost prohibitive.

Custom Stenciling (Children's Themes)
A stencil is a template used to paint or draw identical patterns, symbols, shapes, or from an original object. A stencil technique in visual art is also referred to as "pochoir" (french for stencil). This is a great activity to do with your children to involve them in your home improvement project.
