Venetian Plaster performs well in wet climates and humidity, while providing a natural resistence to mold because it's based on the natural minerals of lime and marble.
Venetian plaster is difficult for me to describe in just a few short words. I can tell you that it's a just a combination of lime and marble, that is pigmented with natural earth elements, and is applied with a trowel to the surface of your walls.
Or I can also tell you that real Venetian plaster is a far contrast from just paint out of a can, because it offers not only just color, but a multi dimensional emotional feeling of warmth, depth, and a overall euphoric feeling of well being when residing in a room that has been finished with our product.
I love this simple guest bedroom done in warm colors, which reminds me of serenity and an overall feeling of wellness.
A much more complex design integrating the elements of wood and metal while using multiple colors of plaster with emphasis on architectual details.
This smooth polished finish makes an old world material modern by todays standards.

Beware of imitations Now you can get cheap Venetian plaster that sort of looks like the real thing, but a well trained eye can spot the difference, and your heart can feel the difference as well. We apply the world's best plaster, and use old world techniques to hard burnish the plaster into the wall as it cures, to create sort of a pearl like finish. The combination of the world's finest plaster, natural earth based pigments, and specially formulated carnauba wax create a multi-dimensional depth of field, in which areas fluctuate in color, depth and intensity as the source of light changes from natural sunlight to lightbulbs.
