Powder room Starburst with a skew, black, champagne and gold.
The client has a lingerie boutique where she serves bourbon and Champagne to the clientele.
She wanted something ‘borderline obnoxious’ for the ceiling of the powder room. Here it is.
The trellis and gate were built out of un-patinaed wood. I matched my glazes to the egistant wood trim – setting them back into the foliage and creating am inviting, old world space.
My client wanted to recover her couch with something intoxicatingly lovely. We worked together on this cornucopia/Medusa image, pulling from design sources she enjoyed.
It is painted in artist oils, on a canvas ground and will be sculpted into a fitted throw.
This wall had been doubly impacted by fire damage and also the removal of a panel of sorts.
The wall finish is a type of caenstone with mica filaments throughout and is not easily touched up. I used custom tinted lime, creating/mimicking the texture by a skip and scratch sponge finish.
The Designer wanted an ‘abstraction’ of foliage for the ceiling, marrying it to the wallpaper and creating a space for the soon to arrive swing.
Create a glowing, romantic environment out of a previously bland space.
Dutch metals are relatively cost effective and create a lot of bang for the buck.
Real gold and silver leaf is, of course, much more beautiful and also a lot more expensive.
The finish can be achieved with metallic paints too, so there is room for any budget to create this effect.
This is colour washing/glazing at its best.
Five different shades of blue, intoxicating!
Third street San Francisco brick and wall transformation;
This building used to house a coffee roasters in the late 1800’s and mid 1900’s.
As I worked I kept bumping into ancient coffee beans in the rafters. The crew and I often wondered if they’d still make a good brew!
It had had all it’s beautiful exposed brickwork painted a shiny beige, the plaster walls too. It was quite a large job and here is the blurry photo of the approved sample I created. Hey it was all the way back in 2013 so forgive me!
Can you see the “cranky knee pants person” and smiley face? Fun what you can find in a pair of paint splattered work pants!
