Venetian plaster is a centuries-old material and technique which traditionally uses slaked lime and marble dust to create wall finishes.
These finishes give a sense of weight and substance to walls which can work in traditional or contemporary settings. Finishes can be matte or highly polished and create a depth unlike anything else.
Used on accent walls or throughout entire homes plaster finishes go beyond the ordinary.
Faux finishing seeks to replicate other materials. Be it wood or marble or even more contemporary materials like concrete or steel, the ability to fool the eye opens up many decorative possibilities.
In restoration it is often more practical to simulate a material. For example, a faux mahogany window sash to blend into the existing mill work.
Faux painting gives more precise control over color and texture than may be practical with replacement materials.
Glazing can give walls, trim or cabinets a subtle richness or a patina of age.
Transparent colors are manipulated by brushes and can transform painted surfaces.
The use of metallic pigments, relief textures and bold colors can also work with contemporary interior decor.
