While much of our Venetian plastering takes place in clients' homes, Veneshe also provides commercial decorative plastering services to local businesses. Some of Veneshe's recent clients include a restaurant in Manyunk, Philadelphia, a catering hall in Northeast Philadelphia, and Photography Studio in the Lehigh Valley. We've also done work for kitchen and tile showrooms in Bucks County and Northern New Jersey, giving patrons of those businesses an opportunity to view our unique plaster finishes alongside custom cabinetry and tile. And we recently teamed up with our friends, Bella Pintura, to transform an inner courtyard wall for a Manhattan physicians' practice, with a trompe l'oeil mural and exterior wall treatment.
The inner courtyard of a NYC medical practice gets exactly 1 hour of sunlight each day, making it impossible to grow plants to screen an old brick wall. Using the illusion of trompe l'oeil, we installed a mural created by Holly Scott of Bella Pintura - of an open garden gate leading into a beautiful park - and cleaned, painted and colorized the background brick to blend seamlessly into the mural. Now a once unused space invites smiles and a sense of serenity, with or without sunlight.
The Couch Tomato Cafe called because they were expanding their successful restaurant to the second and third floor of the building they occupy in Manyunk. The colors are strong and bright -- reds, yellows and terra cottas -- and the rustic Italian plaster finish contrasts nicely with the modern vibe of the bustling, light-filled eatery that boasts long lines out the door on weekdays.
For the Regal Ballroom, elegance was the theme of its lobby makeover, replacing strong colors with softer beiges, taupes and silvers. There, we did a polished grassello wall finish with custom designed, pewter toned modellos - creating a focal wall and backdrop for event photography.
In our commercial work, just as in our residential projects, a focus on discerning the client's tastes and working together to develop a vision, then flawlessly executing to plan characterizes our work. With extensive experience in art and architectural decoration, we can suggest unique and fully customized designs that complement our Italian and Venetian plaster wall finishes. Best yet, we can design and install everything from custom moldings to murals, and from decorative tile to elaborate mosaics. And yes, we paint too.
