Custom Murals & Faux finishing to suit your needs.

We have many samples to choose from, though having a finish that caters to your specific desires is what we do best. We will work with each client or the respective designer to create a custom sample board (or 10) that harmonize with your vision. Our samples are larger than most and can be kept on site while you consider your options.

There are endless color options, and so many textures to choose from. From heavily textured Tuscan, to High polished, smooth Venetian and so many layers in between. Our gilding team work with many different metals, from 24 karat gold, to rich Palladium. We can give you a beautifully gilt ceiling, accented trim, medallions, as well as hints of metal veins running through our plaster.
