How do the best interior designers pull together a haute look, aside from furnishings and fixtures? By focusing on architectural elements, like wall and ceiling finishes, moldings and trimwork, fireplaces and soft furnishings, all of which can elevate a room without investing in new furniture.
Take this Italian-inspired dining room makeover, for example. The owners were eager to redo their faded, commercially produced faux plaster walls from 2005 (it doesn't take long for faux plasters to become sun-damaged) with real Venetian plaster from Veneshe. A beautiful taupe Milano custom color plaster with gold and silver undertones was chosen for the walls, and a warm golden Milano Venetian plaster was chosen for the ceiling.
At the same time, they decided to replace an inefficient gas fireplace with a new pellet stove insert and use the opportunity to build a hearth using locally sourced, handcrafted Mercer tile from the Moravian Tileworks in Doylestown, PA.
Other decorative elements included installing new trimwork and finishing all moldings and trim in a soft gold antiqued finish, and a crowning ceiling medallion with gold leaf accents for the chandelier.
Veneshe specializes in Italian decorative finishes and architectural decoration to compliment Venetian plastering. Whether your Venetian plaster project also calls for tile installation, custom trimwork, murals, gilding and gold leafing, or other decorative and architectural elements, we can bring fresh design ideas to the table, source the materials and handle the installation. To get more ideas for your next design project, start by taking a look at the variety of Venetian plaster colors and finishes available from Veneshe, and give us a call.
