A Beautiful Designer Showhouse in Centerport NY
We just completed some beautiful finishes for the Normandy Mansion Designer Showhouse which will be at a gorgeous home across the street from the Vanderbilt Museum in Centerport NY
We did a beautiful light teal strie on the living room walls for designer Beth Foley of West Hempstead NY. Her living room is classic and traditional – but with a modern twist. The art she used for the room was very modern and colorful. Our background supports her colors and themes – because it’s timeless and classic and doesn’t overpower the room.
Close up of our wall finish – with some of the paintings installed
Beth hadn’t finished the room yet, but this painting gives you a glimpse of the colors she used in her space while giving the room a modern touch
Not quite finished with the arrangement, but adding black to the room lends wonderful contrast
Our wall finish lends a soft backdrop to her room. If we had been bolder with the finish, the room would not have worked at all. This room has such a peaceful quality to it – but the modern paintings give it that punch of color.
We also did the stairway going up to the second floor. Again, we did a subtle colorwashed finish that anyone could afford to have done in their home. It’s simple – yet so beautiful. We added a little “Hello” as you enter the stairway…a beautiful scroll and some French wording from a famous poem “Le Printemps.” It’s understated – but very memorable. Faux finishing used to be loud and all about the tool that you used – but today’s professional finishes and subtle and lovely and they add beauty without “being in your face.”
Here you see the two finishes together. The transition from strie to a soft colorwash…is seamless
I did the finishes with Marty Wisehahn of Classic Faux Studios. I hope that some of you will come to the Showhouse. It’s worth the trip.
