Nothing makes me happier than having customers (decorative painters) who have customers (daring homeowners) who are willing and wanting to push the envelope, so to speak, with designs and patterns in their homes. Granted, these types of projects MAY require a healthy budget, but more importantly they resist the need to “play it safe”. Case in point: this amazing faux mosaic application that was inspired by the art and decoration at the original Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas.
Michelle, on our staff, did an amazing job of creating these large mosaic flowers, and Anna and Scott Sadler of Surface Refinements in Scottsdale, Arizona got to do the fun indredibly tedious part of applying various colors of metal leaf, metallic foil and metallic paints to the individual squares, estimated to be around 7,000 in number. Talk about commitment and determination-or as Anna calls it-insanity!
Yes, a LOT of work. But seriously, HOW MUCH do you want something like this in your bathroom? I want it BAD! I even want to see it going up one wall, across the ceiling , and down the other side. Maybe Anna and Scott would want to come to my studio here an do that, now that they have so much “experience”.
You can see how much this “mosaic madness” has gotten under their skin…..
Update: My friend in stenciling, Helen Morris, blogged about this here.
