Veneshe is often asked by clients to team up with other interior designers and decorative painters to produce stunning, one-of-a-kind Venetian Plaster walls, features, ceilings and surface treatments. This featured project represents the dramatic scale and effect that can be achieved when a standard builder-issue fireplace, out of proportion to the rest of the room, is visually enlarged to be in scale with the cathedral ceiling and feature wall, and the entire look is unified with a stunning decorative plaster finish.
To start, the wall was given a much needed makeover using Piatto Italian Plaster, adding richly neutral color and an aged texture which evoked the homeowners' love of Italy. A skip trowel method was used to apply the Italian Plaster. The fireplace was then trimmed with faux painted woodgrained millwork for a larger mantel and second level to add height and dimension. Finally, Holly Fields-Scott of Bella Pintura was commissioned to paint a trompe l'oeil border, scenic and fireplace embellishments, giving the room a stately focal point in harmony with its architectural proportions.
