Veneshe Venetian Plaster re-interprets a 2011 Color Trends palette of vintage wine paired with pearl gray and etruscan gold, adding a depth of color, texture and polish to make this trend pop with "wow" factor. We expect to see these rich paint hues show up in 2011 designer homes and offices - and Venetian plaster takes the look to a whole new level.
The pearl gray sample was created in luxurious Grassello di Calce, a polished Venetian plaster finish that creates a marble-like luster and smooth, cool touch that is elegant, dramatic, and unmistakably Italian. We paired this with an interpretation of the 2011 color of the year, a deep wine that hints of smokey violet and rich cocoa and anchors the color scheme. A warm golden terra cotta Milano Venetian plaster, shimmering with lusterous metalic aggregates infused in the plaster, provides the pop that paint can't deliver.

Color and design experts point to three colors expected to gain popularity in 2011 when paired with natural, neutral tones - a rich wine, a vibrant honeysuckle pink, and a sunny citrus. We've interpreted these colors along with ever popular neutrals into four venetian plaster color palettes utilizing a variety of plaster finishes, to illustrate the very different looks that can be achieved when designing Venetian plaster walls and ceilings.
