Church Residence
Interiors by Lisa Holt
This space was a dream project for me. Imagine living in a church! Not just any church, but one that has 30-foot ceilings with original tin tile and hardwood floors... Are you drooling yet? You know you are going to have fun on a project when the client (not me) suggests hot pink venetian plaster walls. We finished the dining room using high wax venetian plaster. for the walls. But we didn\\\'t stop there..... The original tin ceiling needed some love, so we put a metallic finish on it to brighten things up. The entry and grand living room also got the venetian plaster finish though this time a much more subdued earthy gray was selected. The grand finale? The fireplace. The owners originally wanted stone, but after the estimates came back, they asked if I could create something similar. We decided on an iron finish with inlayed black wax to replicate the stone they loved and voila! (Bet you can\\\'t tell it\\\'s not real.)
