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.

“We just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the work of MB Jessee Painting and your employees. Everything turned out beautiful. Our foreman was great! He was punctual, professional, neat and very accommodating ... and went the extra mile. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and family.”

“I had my wooden kitchen cabinets painted white. Anabal and Danielle were doing the job. I have nothing but praise for them. They came on time, cleaned up every day, were respective, friendly and helpful. If the rest of Jessee's crew are as great as Anabal and Danielle, this company will go far.”

“The people at M.B. Jessee are great – from the painters to the office staff to Matt. Talk about leadership from the top.”

— Kevin Ames, Mark Becker Homes

“Awesome work by highly experienced, professional painters. They were: Conscious about the amount of time it would take. Ours had a lot of pre-work and took 3 weeks. Accommodating when we added a few last-minute changes Understanding when a heatwave hit and we remove some of the plastic sheeting over windows, which they had to put back up the next day. Accessible, especially the on-site crew (Hi Jose & Victor!) -- always answering questions and checking in. The end result is a perfect paint job that makes our 94-year-old house look brand new. I would definitely hire MBJ again”
