Plaster Finishes


Love the look of a fine European plaster finish?  So do we!

From sleek, polished Venetian plasters, to smooth, soft lime finish plasters and fine interior stucco finishes, our artisans can do them all.  We can also do metallic paints and plasters such as Lusterstone – see our Custom Finishes for more details.

Custom plaster finishes lend an elegance and authenticity to your walls that cannot be achieved with paint alone.  Our plasters have a soft, pleasing feel, while still being very durable.  We love the custom look a sophisticated plaster can give!

  • Fine interior stucco finishes that are very smooth while still offering a subtle variation in the finish

  • Venetian plasters in both lime and acrylic versions

  • Metallic plasters such as Lusterstone

A few design notes:


Plastering has been around for centuries, if not millennia.  It has a more natural, authentic look and feel than today’s acrylic- or petroleum-based paints.  A plastered finish costs more than the textured and painted Sheetrock found in most homes nowadays, but if the home design budget permits, there’s nothing quite like it!


Plasters come in two basic types: those with a natural base material such as lime or clay, and those with a modern-day equivalent such as acrylic.  There are pro’s and con’s to each, and either type can give you a beautiful look, whether you want a subtle European look or a polished Venetian marble effect.  We can help advise you on the best choice for your home!
