This warm toned, organic, faux finish was painted on the walls of a large foyer and sitting area. The palette and texture were inspired by the richly colored, marble tiles accenting the floor.

This dramatic faux finish was painted on the walls throughout this grand foyer. It is an exploration in color, texture, and compositional flow.

(The pair of large vases displayed within the niches of the second floor were made by VIRTU. They are featured in Designs & Details. The tabletop displays of glass are from the client's collection.)
