Mezzaluna sign

Mezzaluna Tuscan Restaurant!!

 

faux painting walls

Martin Alan Hirsch worked with the owners of this restaurant to create the ambiance of an Italian Tuscan restaurant. This was a former Mexican restaurant that was teal and peach. The idea was to create the look and feel of Italy with texture and color.
By using Sandstones and Lime Paint Washes in ochre yellow and burnt sienna, Mezzaluna now resembles a sidewalk cafe in Tuscany!
