specialist decoration technique:faux stone

The faux stone paint effect on the Corinthian columns gives added interest and weight to these elements and links them to the natural stone work of the fire surrounds in the room. The tonality and warm colours of the stone paint effect are complimentary to the glazed wall treatment, soft furnishings and natural oak joinery of this London home. These represent some of the many specialist decoration treatments that are available for period, historic and contemporary interior decoration. The use of paint or render to imitate stone is a traditional and useful technique for emphasizing architectural elements and modifying interior space. Colour and tone can be modified to suit most tastes and design requirements. For more detail see our main pages on faux stone paint effects.
