Using Venetian Plaster in Bay Area with Guest blogger, Laura Martin Bovard
Beyond Paint Color-Accenting with Venetian Plaster
You knew your painter could paint the walls with low voc paint and strip wall paper to add fresh new color but did you know he can also enhance the beauty of your interior by creating special finishes or applying paint to unexpected surfaces? One aspect of our full service interior design firm is color consultations. Many clients call us in to select a color palette for painting the walls colors that flow well together and will go with their furnishings but there are so many other possibilities. Imagine if you looked beyond painting the walls and went for some of the ideas listed below that we have used successfully. Most people aren’t aware of how using creative applications and artful finishes can create dramatic impacts that result in elegant and beautiful finishes that have shine, movement, texture and rhythm that come from properly using Venetian Plaster. When applied expertly it can transform a room, when attempted by a novice it can go awry quickly.
Accent a fireplace with Venetian Plaster
This room is successful because we layered it with a variety of finishes and textures that flow well together to create an elegant, warm and cohesive look for this master bedroom. The young family appreciates having a space where they can connect in comfort and enjoy the beauty of their well composed room. The main focus of the room is the fireplace which is beautifully framed by a Venetian Plaster wall. The Venetian plaster has a subtle metallic imbedded into the bronze pigment which reflects light beautifully and creates a grounded foundation for the 18th Century French limestone fireplace. This technique requires skill and experience and can be achieved by hiring an experienced painter who specializes in custom finishes like Venetian Plaster.
