Here’s another terrific element we delivered for our residential project on Royal Street in the Bywater of New Orleans. It’s a major renovation in a stunning historic property. Here’s a view of our work in the guest bedroom. You can see the custom stencil that we “ghosted.” Also, we aged the plaster on the walls, crown molding, and trim. The look is made to appear as if things have been in a state of beautiful decay for many years with this antique finish. We used real milk paint that does the job terrifically and is also environmentally friendly, non-toxic, and 100% organic!

Sylvia T Designs is the premier decorative arts firm in the New Orleans and the larger Gulf Coast region. Our unparalleled aesthetic skill is matched only by the depth of our product knowledge and experience. We use only artisan-level materials in our project work.

Now, here’s a stairwell you’d want to go up and down! Tadelakt plaster, a traditional Moroccan technique, is so versatile! It can be used in wet areas (like walk-in showers) as well as dry areas (walls, ceilings.) Here, as part of a residential renovation in Baton Rouge, we applied a beautiful, custom colored tadelakt plaster finish on the stairwell’s wainscoting in its upper portion and then on both sides of its solid half-wall. The stairwell comes dramatically into view from the home’s foyer, open kitchen, and living room. Also note, in some of the pictures, you can see the plaster in the upper areas is yet to dry into its finished look, as seen the in the lower area/half-wall views. Ultimately, the look is creamy, organic, and boasts a subtle lushness unique to tadelakt! Special bonus – don’t miss the amazing scalloped fireplace surround we delivered using a stunning stone plaster finish!

Sylvia T Designs is the only true tadelakt artisan in the New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Greater Gulf Coast region. We use only high-quality, artisan materials. Dreaming of tadelakt in your space?

Here’s a recently completed project of a residential renovation in Baton Rouge for our friends, Kenneth Brown Design and Bernhard Normand Construction! We delivered a sumptuous tadelakt finish to the stove hood (pictured here) in the open kitchen as well as around the adjacent living room walls and scalloped fireplace surround (more on the last two soon!) The plaster is a custom color matched across the three elements. The soft mottled feel of the tadelakt complements the space terrifically!

Ahhh, the beautiful silky texture of tadelakt plaster! This beautiful traditional Moroccan technique can shine and shimmer in various spaces – both dry (as pictured here) or wet applications (such as walk-in showers). In these shots, we delivered this special plaster finish to a residence in Baton Rouge. We did the walls and ceilings in the living room and entry way. The surfaces boast a natural glow that changes depending on the light (natural and artificial) and the time of day. It strikes a balance between the modern and traditional while complementing the look of the reclaimed wood beams and flooring. Tadelakt uses natural materials, is eco-friendly, and delivers a finish that is true art!

Sylvia T Designs in the only true tadelakt artisan in the New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and overall Gulf Coast regions. We use only the best, authentic products and apply them with unparalleled skill and craftsmanship. Let us know how we can bring tadelakt to your project and make your space a work of art!

One of the main things we do here at Sylvia T Designs is color! It’s in our DNA. Looking for some guidance on color selections for your project? We got you! And this isn’t limited to our decorative arts deliverables on a job, we can help you with color on any part of your project! Where we also excel is with color matching (in fact, we’re unmatched in that regard – pun intended😅)! We’re experts at matching colors, whether standard or custom, with our work. We can take whatever colors your project requires and make a perfect match with the plasters, microcement, lime washes, and mineral paints we use as well as with many other aspects of the decorative arts we deliver (murals, stencils, custom signage, etc.)

Thank you so much to everyone who attended our class, “The Right Plaster for the Right Space,” last Friday at our New Orleans artisan shop! And a special big thanks to our friends at Preservation Resource Center NOLA for asking us to do this! It was a great success – was sold out (and then some!) and it seemed people came away with practical and critical knowledge needed to better understand utilizing and spec’ing plaster and microcement in their projects.

The class was, principally, for folks in the trade – architects, designers, contractors, etc. We shared our expertise and product knowledge across a wide range of functional and decorative plasters – Venetian, Marmorino, Grassello, Tadelakt, American Clay, Microcement, and more. We covered how each of these can perform, proper prep, cost, and other key ideas!

If you couldn’t make it or would like to learn more, drop us a DM and we can set you up with an appointment to stop by our artisan shop and see how we can “make your space a work of art!”

Our major project in the French Quarter is fully underway! We are doing extensive work in an historic Creole cottage providing numerous plaster finishes and other decorative elements throughout the home. Here, we are applying the final coat of a beautiful Marmorino plaster in one of the parlors. The texture will soften and the color will lighten as it dries. From there, we be applying a horizontal striping lime wash to finish off this stunning look. Stay tuned!
