Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Faux finishing, or decorative painting, is the process of applying multiple layers of interior house paint and glaze to craft a textured or photorealistic pattern, such as wood grain, marbling, a cloudscape, and onward to more complex murals and trompe l’oeil. Most of the other faux-painting titles in the market focus on either room shots *or* finished paint swatches but do not successfully evoke both inspirational and hard-working images. Designer Faux Finishing fills that empty niche.

 

The room designs in Designer Faux Finishing will inspire homeowners to transform their homes into leather-worn libraries, ancient grottos or French streetscapes with just a little help from paint. Each image shows a faux treatment within the context of interior color, design, and lighting, enabling readers to make design decisions when working on their own or with interior designers. Twenty of these photos feature tutorials that deconstruct the techniques used and instruct readers on the nuances of replicating those looks in their homes.
