Decorative Painting

We specialize in decorating panels and furniture. Mostly we decorate panels in grisaille ornamentation and grotesque. Our grotesque panels are decorated with architectural ornaments, flowers and foliage interweaving with butterflies, birds, animals, human figures or other desirable objects. Grisaille ornamentation is ornament painting entirely in monochrome or nearly monochrome executed in baroque, rococo and neoclassical style in grey tones and usually depicting ornaments and decorations that could be executed in plaster (bas-relief carvings) and thus creating a trompe l´oeil effect. Acanthus is one of the most popular and often returning motives. Acanthus was popular in many cultures since its introduction into the world of decorative architecture in Greece, and gives an elegant and eye pleasing classical decoration, suitable for not only formal but also for informal interiors. We specialize in grotesque, popular during baroque, rococo and neoclassicism in Sweden, Great Britain, France and Italy based on inspiration from some of the greatest historical decorators such as Adrien Louis Masreliez (1748-1810) of Sweden. Examples for the interior details that are suitable and were historically decorated in this style are wall panels, over door mantels, pediments, doors, etc.
