Create Narnia in your own front room with a trompe-l'œil door cover, which creates the illusion of another world right outside your door.

Trompe-l'œil is a technique which uses superbly realistic images to create the optical illusion that things are in 3D.

No special DIY skills are required to hang the door cover. Simply trim to size and apply to the door using normal wallpaper paste.

So whether you want to transform your room into a Montmartre, a library, or something from the eighteenth century, a trompe-l'œil door cover will help you trick your dinner guests and liven up your décor.
