A Breath of Fresco Air

August 10, 2018

Feel Good Friday

Fresco is a technique of mural painting that thrived throughout the Italian Renaissance. Interior walls of churches and houses were painted with murals on freshly laid plaster. This meant the murals merged with the plaster and became an integral part of the wall itself. The technique had been around for thousands of years, but it really took off during the Italian Renaissance…a period of cultural revival and rene’wall of the arts.

  

Traveler Alexis spent a semester studying abroad in Italy. She constantly found herself s’wall’owed up in the beauty of Italian frescos. But there was one particular fresco that really captured her. The massive “Painted Garden” originally covering all four walls of a room in the Villa of Livia was a breath of fresco air. As a garden paradise filled with spring flowers, summer fruits and song birds, she was left in complete ad’mural’ation.

She stumbled upon a fabric that brought her back to that moment when she first laid her eyes on the “Painted Garden" and wanted to share this fresco-from-the-market fabric with you too.

Here’s to this breath of fresco air and to feeling good—because after all, it's Friday!
