For this powder room ceiling I used a gold/bronze base with a charcoal top coat. Then to add some sparkle a touch of the gold/bronze as a rub.
For many of my jobs I create sample boards for the client’s benefit. Samples make an idea concrete and give the client options. These are 2 examples of sample boards for an up and coming job. They like the Zebra stripe.
The designer on this job found this gorgeous burled wood fireplace. Once it was installed, she decided it needed more height. She had a contractor build the crown out of particleboard and installed the resin cast columns. Then I painted the crown to match the fireplace and the columns to match the travertine tiles on the surround.
This is a fireplace that the builder put in his spec home. The new homeowners liked the structure of this one but not the finish.
After a thorough prepping, I added a faux stone texture and sanded it so that it feels nice. Then, I embedded silver into the grooves.
To update these cabinets, I added the molding with the squares and the beadboard, then, I finished them with a fade which gives the cabinets a subtle glow in the center.
This dome added a bit of glitz to the room after I added old fashioned gold leaf.
We made this foyer staircase interesting by adding a chair rail, Lincrusta and then finished with a bronzed leather faux .
This job was to transform the white mantle and coffered ceiling into a dark bronze.
Connected to the parlor is the small foyer and then the dinning room.
The homeowner chose a decorative metallic faux for the foyer and a soft aged green linen faux for the dining room.
This client wanted to bring inspiration from the stone of the Western Wall of Israel. The “stone” wall is a coating of texture and acrylic paint.
Below is before faux finish.
This wall was a large white area in the room that just sorta disappeared. For this job, I first marbleized the fireplace and the columns. I painted the wall a soft gold that matched the gold trailing around the ceiling edge. I tea stained the edges of the gold wall to add interest. The picture frame molding and the crown molding I painted a seafoam green also tea stained and highlighted with gold.
