Large-scale leaf mural for an airy salon

 

For their beautiful new salon, the clients wanted something unique to tie together and anchor the wall above the wash sinks—the heart of the salon. We proposed a dark background to help create a sense of calm and cohesion with the various elements on that wall—tiles, wood, chairs and sinks—and leaves that wrap onto the neighboring walls for a dynamic, three-dimensional feeling. The salon is very light, bright, and plant-filled, so the leaves we chose added drama and depth to the space, as well as referencing the plants within it. The overall aesthetic is a little mid-century, a little Victorian, a little modern, a little Northwest, so we pulled all these together for a delightful, playful mural with a large scale that pairs beautifully with the small penny tile below.

Everything bagel "wallpaper" for Portland's best bagel shop

 

Bernstein's Bagels cares about what they do—their bagels are hand-rolled and made with care in their tiny, owner-operated St. Johns location. The atmosphere is happy, bright, and fun, and we created this step and repeat pattern of beautiful bouquets to showcase all the ingredients in their signature everything bagels: wheat, barley, poppy, sesame, caraway, onion, garlic, and sea salt. The "Bagels" feature beneath the display case was drawn freehand on site to compliment the Everything wall (and the bagels themselves, of course!)
