Modello Mural on decor8

What a lovely surprise to see the art deco mural I designed for Peacock Pavilions today on decor8! It seems that Holly is leading a group over there this coming October for a weeklong  focus on decorating and successful blogging. I blogged about the creation of this dramatic, black and gold mural after Peacock Painting trip there in January 2009.

I actually had the amazing experience of sleeping under this mural just this past May, as I took another flock of Peacock Painters back to Marrakech to stencil a dramatic black and white hospitality tent on the property. Maryam did quite a few blog posts about it, but I am obviously VERY far behind on my own blogging as I have yet to even post picture myself here. Ugh!!! Pay no attention to that large “L” pasted on my forehead….

    What a thrill to see the finished room. The photo brought back so many wonderful memories of working with you and the other Painters on this beautiful mural. The January 2009 trip was a love affair with Marrakesh and all the wonderful people. I want to go back.

    Melanie, what an amazing job you did on this mural. Absolutely lovely. I particularly love the repeating star design you did at the floor level that you can see behind the table in the photograph above. Please create a stencil using that pattern!
