Theme Interiors


This is a new area James has recently embarked upon -- combining his faux finishing techniques with his scenic painting skills -- to create a theme in a room. Whether you want a Southwest feel, a New Orleans look, a Zen-Asian mood, or a jungle rainforest atmosphere, James can do that. He can even take it to a higher level, with trompe l'oeil techniques, and create details that will fool all of your guests into thinking they're real!
