Veneshe's latest projects - a restored turn of the century historic home in Quakertown and a modern, well-appointed condo in Newtown, PA showcase a variety of Venetian Plaster wall finishes and ceiling treatments.
A beautifully restored turn of the century historic home on Main Street in Quakertown now features a peacock-themed Italian plaster treatment wall and ceiling in what was once a doctor's operatory area. Glossy teal Grassello di Calce walls showcase movement and rich depth of color variation on the polished surface, contrasting sharply with a bright white polished Venetian plaster ceiling.
The reflective Venetian plaster shines on the ceiling and wraps down to the top of the tall walls, upon which an intricate art deco-inspired border was applied using white Venetian plaster over a custom Melanie Royals modello. The peacock theme was carried up to the ceiling, forming a medallion for the restored lighting fixture. See more Venetian plaster pictures of this project in the Venetian Plaster Gallery.
The owner of a Newtown condo looked forward to transforming the original owner's baby blue painted walls with a Venetian plaster treatment more befitting the style and scale of her elegant home. Veneshe painted the entire condo in calming, neutral tones and then applied translucent layers of a creamy beige Grassello di Calce polished Venetian plaster to the feature wall of the master bedroom, creating a dramatic Veneziano backdrop to the bed.
Next, a powder bath was given a makeover, alternating wide stripes of bronze and pewter Milano Italian plaster with a narrow chocolate pinstripe, giving the walls a refined and handsome new look.
Finally, the fireplace and columns of the living room were repainted using a subtle tone-on-tone faux paint technique.
Venetian plaster finishes like Grassello look as lovely in classic, modern interiors as in historic homes. Whatever your style or vision, call on Veneshe to bring it to life.
