For that extra touch to make your foyer glow, add a gold glaze on the ceiling to match the light fixtures.

Add that extra touch to make your foyer glow. This ceiling is done to look like gold leaf, giving the room depth and an understated opulence. It even matches the light fixtures! Done with Anne Bishton of Anne Bishton Designs. 
Want a custom stencil designed and created for your space? No problem. This damask pattern was taken from a wallpaper sample the client provided. When the design was enhanced by layers of glaze and the right colors, it created a room with more depth and character than any wallpaper could have.

 All the color was taken out of this stone archway because a worker accidentally used muratic acid to clean it! Simonette stained the stones in the archway an array of natural stone colors to match the palette in the rest of the home. After it was finished, the client liked it better than she did the original stone.
