Faux Finish
This decorative painting technique gives your surfaces depth and texture. The idea behind a faux finish is to mimic the color and texture of another material; any material really. Your walls could look like the night sky, or silk sheets, or even slabs of chipping marble with skillfully applied faux finishing. With a careful mixture of colors and application tools, your walls can be made of stone blocks or exotic hardwood. You can use faux finish to complement the surrounding design or as the focus for your decor.

Glazing is another method of adding texture to your painted surface. While it is not intended alone to mimic materials, it is often used when attempting to achieve a faux finish. Glazing a wall, for example, adds an element of elegance and richness. By using different application tools as well as staggered coating, the paint takes on a mottled effect. Glazing can offer your surface the unique texture provided by different materials such as a French brush, rag, parchment or sponge. These textures make your surfaces stand out more and can complement other design aspects, such as striping, well.


Striping involves precisely what it sounds like; painting stripes on a surface. Stripes are a classic design element that has never gone out of style. The versatility of striping allows for depth and dimension to be added to a room simply by alternating strips of color or gloss. Varying stripe width and direction along with color combinations, gloss and flat colors and many other factors help to create a gorgeous striped design. Striping lets you showcase vibrant color or simply create the illusion of more space when used on the walls of a room. It can turn a flat wall and fill it with life or integrate with the room’s design and decoration method.
