Bringing Nature to a New Home: A Mural Project in Carnegie, Melbourne

At JayMT & Silva, we take pride in transforming spaces into beautiful, personalized works of art that resonate with our clients’ visions. Our recent project in Carnegie, Melbourne, was a delightful example of this. The clients, John Koppel and his family, had recently purchased a new home and were in the final stages of remodeling. They wanted a nature-inspired mural to enhance a large back wall, creating a serene and vibrant addition to their living space.

The Client’s Vision: A Nature-Inspired Sanctuary

John Koppel and his family wanted a mural that would bring a touch of nature to their new home. The wall in question measured approximately 3 by 5 meters, and they desired a scene that would fit seamlessly with the rest of their remodeling efforts. The goal was to create a piece that was not only visually stunning but also harmonized with the home’s aesthetic.

The Concept: A Tranquil Lake Scene

After discussing various ideas, we settled on a design featuring a serene lake with a graceful swan in the middle. The lake would be surrounded by lush greenery and vibrant trees, creating a peaceful and picturesque scene. To add a unique touch, we incorporated a “peekaboo” effect, where the mural would appear framed by larger trees on either side, making the lake scene feel nestled within a natural setting.

The Design: Integrating Nature and Art

The mural was designed to cover a specific 3 by 5 meter section of the wall, while the surrounding wall remained untouched. By painting large trees on both sides of the mural, we created a natural frame that made the lake scene feel like a window into a serene landscape. This composition not only enhanced the visual impact of the mural but also integrated it seamlessly with the rest of the wall and the surrounding environment.

The Painting Process: Bringing the Vision to Life

The painting process took about five days. Our team worked meticulously to bring the tranquil lake scene to life, ensuring every detail, from the reflection in the water to the textures of the trees, was perfect. The use of vibrant colors and intricate details helped create a lively and inviting atmosphere.

The Outcome: A Beautiful Addition to a New Home

The final mural transformed the once plain wall into a beautiful nature scene that perfectly complemented the clients’ new home. The peekaboo effect added depth and interest, making the mural a captivating focal point. John Koppel and his family were thrilled with the result, appreciating how the mural contributed to making their new house truly feel like home.


This project in Carnegie was a wonderful opportunity to blend nature with art, creating a personalized and harmonious addition to the client’s new home. At JayMT & Silva, we are dedicated to bringing our clients’ visions to life through our unique and captivating murals.
