Hirshfield’s Design Studio, working with Melinda and Marc Bender, created a wall replicating antique silk wallcovering, with the use of one damask stencil. Their work is impeccable. Here are a few photos of the process.
One of the characteristics of a real silk wallcovering, is that you see every seam. Greg, a designer at the Hirshfield’s showroom, had Melinda tape each “seam” so to look as authentic as possible. The dark and light horizontal swipes of paint on the ground, help make it look like silk fabric.
The color is a tad off in the last photo, but I think you can see how beautiful the space looks.
M&M Bender Designer Wall Finishes have a display at the design studio featuring samples of their amazing work. Applications they specialize in are stencils, plaster finishes, hand painted murals, modellos, and combing are a few that come to mind.
The design studio also has a number of decorative wall finishes throughout the showroom. Plus, the Plaster Center is next door with all their wild and wonderful finishes. Architectural Enhancements (decorative cement) and metallic wall plasters are fine finishers new faves. Check it out! What era is that phrase from?
