Design Trends: Marvelous Mosaics

Get a custom tiled work for your home like this one found at the Island Inn on Sanibel.

 

Wilson Lopez’s murals are designed to dazzle. The owner and artist behind Ultimate Mosaic in Fort Myers creates custom (and copyrighted) tile murals, plus ready-to-go pieces featuring herons, shells, lighthouses and other icons of Southwest Florida. He created this 24-by-34-inch roseate spoonbill for Spoonbill Cottages at the Island Inn on Sanibel. The mural echoes the colors found in beach and Gulf.

Commissioned pieces can cost about $5,000 for a work of this size but last centuries in indoor and outdoor environments—as historic churches and fountains throughout Europe attest. Find Ultimate Mosaic at 11440 Metro Parkway, Suite 3, or browse the collection at ultimatemosaic.com.
