Fireplace Refinish

Sylvia was very attentive to my style and wishes. She made a sample piece so I could see how it would look before she started. She was prompt and professional. Her price was reasonable.

Kitchen Cabinet and Bar Refinishing

We recently did a small renovation which included our 22-year old kitchen cabinets and bar being refinished by Sylvia. They are our favorite part of the project. The finish is much prettier than I have seen on new factory cabinets coupled with a significant cost savings. Her work is really amazing.

Kitchen Renovation

We engaged Sylvia during the renovation of our kitchen. The work entailed changes to the wall colors, floor finish, counter tops, and repainting of the cabinets and island. Sylvia was instrumental in identifying the mix of colors and paint style that would complement the other aspects of our home. The overall creativity and knowledge of color matching and paint finishing were key factors in the overall success of the project. She always conducted herself very professionally and completed all work in a timely manner. Sylvia was very easy to work with both in the design and the implementation of the work. In addition, Sylvia developed a plan for repainting the wrought iron stair rail in our house. She worked to provide a truly unique product which aligns with and highlights the lighting and furniture in the foyer. Everyone who comes into our home is impressed with Sylvia’s work. We will use Sylvia again for future projects.

Historic Restaurant Renovation in the French Quarter

All of our projects start with the building. We find old buildings with great bones that deserve to be preserved and reintroduced to everyone so that they may experience the history and sense of place in New Orleans. Sylvia is literally the person single most responsible for bringing them back to life with her restoration and decorative arts work. Once we have an amazing old building that we think people should experience, we create an idea for what type of restaurant would be authentic to the space. We then work with Sylvia to bring those ideas and the place to life.

Historic French Quarter Creole Cottage

The results that Sylvia and her crew created for my cottage in the French Quarter exceeded my expectations. From the consult, to the color selection and previews of samples she created, to the professional way the work itself was conducted, but mostly to the final outcome. Not only do I admire the walls every day, but the number of compliments I hear also proves that the job is fantastic. The cost was more than for some other finishes, but it seemed very reasonable for the work involved and certainly for the result, which is so beautiful!

Longway Tavern – Historic French Quarter Restaurant

Each of our projects consist of two components. The first is the preservation of the history, culture and tradition of New Orleans and the sense of place implied by these old buildings. The second is populating these buildings with a team that embodies exactly what we think the 21st century New Orleans experience should be. Sylvia allows us to do both at the same time.

Cabinet Refinishing

Sylvia was great to work with. She provided me with several samples of stains for my cabinets and beams. She was flexible in her schedule and met all deadlines. Her work is very beautiful and I love all she did. I will hire her again for additional work I am considering.

At Sylvia T Designs, the New Orleans area’s premier native decorative arts firm, we honor tradition and progress on each of our projects. It is a privilege to work in these spaces – whether it’s somewhere historic or somewhere new, commercial or residential, a large job or small. For 25 years, we have sought to bring this mindfulness to everything we do. Here, team member Jess takes a moment to reflect on this terrific tadelakt plaster finish from a residential bathroom in the Bywater. It’s one element we are delivering for this special historical renovation and restoration project.
 
We’re big fans of tadelakt and we are the region’s only expert in this traditional Moroccan plaster technique, ideal for both wet and dry applications. It’s a lime plaster that takes skill, timing, expertise, and a particular thoughtfulness that is right in keeping with what we do at Sylvia T Designs! Let us know how we can make your space a work of art!

Here’s a terrific recent example showing both the functionality and beauty of our tadelakt plaster work! We applied the plaster all over the bathroom of a residential pool house in the Lakeview area of New Orleans. It’s both the wet application (shower walls and floor) and the dry application (bathroom walls and the entire ceiling.) Each application requires a different approach, utilizing a different number of coats. It also takes skilled and disciplined timing to ensure the wet application is water and mold resistant as well as making sure both applications match, looking seamless across the entire space. The natural, organic, and silky look of the plaster compliments the reclaimed wood features of the bathroom.

Remember the tadelakt plaster application we mentioned in our last post? Well, here is a wider shot of the featured archway skylight in the master bathroom. We’re doing a wet application of this special plaster in the shower and a dry application, pictured here as we add the final coat (two stories up!), on the ceilings and in the archway. Tadelakt is ideal for many uses – showers, all around in the bathroom, pool houses, back splashes, outdoor kitchens, and much more. It’s not only a functional plaster (water and mold resistant) but, in the right artisan’s hands, it can be beautiful, demonstrating deeply organic looks and beautiful motion.

More from our exciting Baton Rouge residential renovation project! Here, we’re applying tadelakt plaster in this show-piece master bathroom. Tadelakt is a traditional Moroccan plaster that is both functional and decorative, ideal for both wet and dry application. It is water and mold resistant (wait until you see the shower!) It’s terrific for all-over use, such as here in the featured archway skylight. Our use of this special lime plaster on the ceiling, in the archway, and in the shower ties the whole bathroom together.

Tadelakt is the lime plaster you should know! It is ideal for both wet and dry applications – showers, bathrooms, backsplashes, outdoor kitchens, and much more. But, this traditional Moroccan plaster takes a great deal of skill to deliver – ensuring that it is both functional (water repellant) and beautiful. Timing in the multi-coat process is critical. It takes the hands of a true artisan to execute this special plaster finish. Here, you can see our finished basecoat for a wet application in a shower – a heavy aggregate plaster that must be properly compressed and smoothed at the right time, not too wet or too dry. This gives us the proper texture needed to setup the multiple coats of tadelakt that then create a beautiful, organic looking plaster finish. One that will transform your space into a (functional) work of art!

It’s always an honor and a pleasure to work in historic and world famous spaces. This is one of many elements, including the overall aesthetic design, we delivered for Belle Époque. It is the absinthe-driven bar and restaurant located behind the renowned Old Absinthe House located on Bourbon Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans. The view is from inside the Old Absinthe House bar looking at the “speakeasy” door that beckons you to see what’s behind and enter the elegant space that is Belle Époque! The look we created harkens back to Prohibition. It’s a metallic gold finish meant to look aged and a bit “grimy.” Sylvia T Designs is the New Orleans area’s premier decorative arts firm. Let us know how we can “honor tradition and progress” in your space – residential or commercial, big or small!

Here’s more from our incredible residential renovation and restoration project in the Bywater of New Orleans. This is one of the bedrooms. Our clients and the interior designer (shout-out to @sararuffincostello) wanted to continue with the overall look of the entire space, making you feel as if you’ve walked back in time when you enter. The look is aged and it’s as if to show years of plaster and color. We’ve achieved this by delivering a lime plaster application with multiple layers of lime wash. You can see the striking depth of the finish. Also, note the faded and aged border we created at the top of the wall adjacent to the ceiling.

We’re loving our current historic residential renovation and restoration project in the Bywater of NOLA! Here, in one of the bathrooms, we’re doing a gorgeous and durable tadelakt plaster finish on the walls, ceiling, and in the shower. That’s right! This traditional Moroccan plaster is not only beautiful (check out the light lavender shading – the picture doesn’t do it justice – believe us!), it’s also water repellant and mold resistant. It works great in both wet and dry applications – showers, pool houses, backsplashes, outdoor kitchens, you name it! It delivers an organic, silky look with remarkable depth. Sylvia T Designs is the premier native New Orleans decorative arts firm and the region’s only expert in tadelakt! We would be happy to chat with you about how this unique and trending plaster can make your space a work of art!

Here’s a recent look at our current historic residential renovation and restoration project in the Bywater. It’s a great space that when completed will be spectacular. When you walk into the space it will seem like a walk back in time! In this part of the project, we’re delivering a Marmorino plaster application in one of the bedrooms. We are distressing the walls to create an aged look. In this shot, we are executing that part of the work by applying layers of lime wash glazes. Expertise is needed to properly handle these specialized products and manage the delicate timing needed for success! Sylvia T Designs is the premier native New Orleans decorative arts firm. Let us know how we can make your space a work of art!

One more shot from our striking French Quarter Creole Cottage project! Here you can see the lustrous gold leaf ceiling in the billiard room. You can also see our “dragged” plaster finish on the walls, blending the plaster and gold pigment. Both the natural light in the room and the finish of the walls shimmer off the gold leaf ceiling. We did a complementary, lighter finish in the adjacent parlor (see our previous post) and also gold leafed the ceiling there. The end result is a dramatic and impressive space. To see more on this project, click the link in our bio. As New Orleans’ premier native decorative arts firm, we can help you make your space a work of art!

Here’s a look at the lighter, yet still very dramatic finish in the parlor we delivered for our clients in their French Quarter Creole Cottage. The natural light reflects off the finish and gold leaf ceiling. This is a “dragged” plaster finish that blends and reveals the gold pigments used in the walls. To see more of this project and its story, click the link in our bio! Sylvia T Designs is the New Orleans area’s premier native decorative arts firm. From traditional looks to entirely modern, let us know how we can make your space a work of art!
