Warm Walls for a Kenwood Office

The walls of this cozy home office located in Bethesda, MD were layered with a Tuscan glaze finish.  The glazing technique created soft movement and depth, complimenting the existing decor.  Notice the radiator cover, which was custom wood-grained using multi-layered glazes, matching the existing woodwork.

Foyer Surprise

The walls of this luxury condo entranceway are lined with graphic color creating a one-of-a-kind look for our client.  Executing designer Alice Sydney’s vision, we used a custom designed stencil pattern with metallic paints over a faux glaze treatment.

Ocean City Kitchen Update

This light and beautiful beach home needed a kitchen cabinet update.  The client was looking for the most affordable way of achieving this, but did not want to replace the existing cabinetry.  Working with John Juenemann Painting, who prepped and painted all the cabinets in a simple white, we overglaze the cabinets at an affordable cost to the client.  What a difference the new finish makes!

From Painted White to Wonderful

It’s always exciting for our artists to see the look on our clients faces when we’ve transformed plain painted surfaces into a custom wood cabinetry look.

Here, we layered-up our paints, glazes, and white chalk to create an English Country Pine wood surface that brings a custom sophistication to the homeowner’s newly decorated space.
