Special decorative finishes can be obtained using different techniques and materials. The range is unlimited with textures being created in the basecoat and one or more colours being used as top coats. From the effects of antiquity, and the delicate friezes and decorative elements of the 18th century, to the vibrant glazes and subtle colour washes popular in modern, minimalist interiors, decorative finishes have been used for centuries to enrich and enliven interior space. Finishes differ from shiny to matt, smooth to textured, achieved by using different techniques like sponging, stencilling, stippling, cloth dragging, marbling, glazing.... Colour tints are used to achieve a unique and customised look with depth and warmth colours. Large selection of finishes, textures and colours allows you to create very special effect for your home, whether you are looking for a classical prestigious style or more modern finish. It is through the artisan’s imagination and the refinement of technique that truly wonderful effects are created.
