These are faux finishes... frosted stripe techniques to add interest and/or to soften a stark environment. The celery green is in a small private dining area; the chocolate in the powder room.
These photos are from a recent and ongoing project painted along with my friend Carol with whom I've done many collaborative projects over the years. The restaurant is Ali'V's, southern cooking and catering located in Jefferson, GA. The owners let us choose faux finish techniques and colors and we colorwashed layers of glazes for a softening effect on both the butter yellow walls and the deep crimson walls. We then painted murals and decorative accents over the faux work.
