Bring Plaster Inside to make a Statement

A recent meeting with a very experienced plaster contractor got me thinking…. with all these beautiful plaster finishes that can be applied indoors or outdoors, why not plaster and color a wall instead of your standard drywall texture and paint? Especially in the kitchen where we are looking for rich and interesting color and texture, one could come up with several ideas on how and where to apply a plaster finish. The great thing about plaster is that it can be applied in several colors, textures, finishes and effects. I took a few photos of some of the samples that our plaster contractor, Melvin Starr of Melvin Starr Plastering, brought us.
We have done several showers in the slightly textured finish, and just completed one shower that uses marble dust from Italy to create a sparkly effect.
Plastering is truly an art, it takes hours to apply, cure and mix, which doesn’t make it the most cost-effective wall finish, but it will guarantee a unique and brilliant style to your space.
I will be sure to use this more often in my designs!
