We are off and running here in 2023 with lots of great stuff happening – it’s been hard to find time to share! Here is a look at the extensive French Quarter Creole Cottage project that we worked on going back to 2022. We delivered work in every interior space in the historic home. So, be on the lookout for a lot more from this project and many others!

Pictured here is the TV Room. The homeowners had an antique tapestry set to adorn one of the walls that they wanted to highlight. They also selected vibrantly colored furniture. We applied a custom color-mixed Marmorino lime-based plaster to the walls and ceiling. We then added a soft strié lime wash giving a lovely warmth that perfectly complements the cool tones of the plaster and the rooms overall décor. Additionally, we glazed the original plaster ceiling medallion allowing it to pop a bit more but still keeping it as a nice harmonic element in the room.

Sylvia T Designs is the region’s premier artisan plaster firm. Trusted to deliver our clients’ vision in everything from new construction to historic spaces. Let us know how we can make your space a work of art!

Here is a glimpse (with more to come) from a cool project we’re on in a residence, an historic shotgun home, in the Marigny of New Orleans. One of the elements we’re delivering is plaster in the bathroom on the walls and ceiling. The homeowners and architect wanted a subtle look, so we went with a gorgeous Marmorino plaster. It perfectly complements the bright tile and tub, allowing them to pop in this contemporary feeling space.

A plastered stove hood is a great and cost-effective way to breathe new life into your kitchen! Here, the homeowner and interior designer wanted to change the look to something a bit more modern – a box stove hood fit the bill. The hood was redone in this fashion, and we applied a dry application of tadelakt (it is so versatile – not just for showers, tubs, and bathrooms!) The plaster’s beautiful, subtle, and organic movement makes for a terrific centerpiece in the room!

Sylvia T Designs is the region’s only tadelakt artisan and your experts in all-things kitchen redo, including hoods, of course! Want to change the look of yours? Let us know how we can make your kitchen space a work of art!

Gold leaf ceilings are the thing these days! And Sylvia T Designs is the region’s gilding master! We just completed this striking (to say the least!) project in a residence in LaPlace. It is a gorgeous split-level space in the home that serves as a parlor. The leafed ceiling we delivered caps things off as a bold central feature of the room. As you can imagine, the job took tremendous teamwork, skill, and exceptional attention to not only detail but also safety and our team delivered!

If you’re looking for expert gilding work – gold, silver, or metal leaf – we’re your go-to for this specialized work. Whether it’s a ceiling, accenting, or simply a piece of furniture, mirror, or painting frame, Sylvia T Designs can make your space a gilded work of art!

Here is another shot of a significant project we recently completed in an historic home in the Bywater of New Orleans. We delivered several decorative finishes and other elements throughout the residence. Here, in one of the bathrooms, you can see the spectacular floor! We produced a custom stencil design and then aged the entire floor to give it an “old” look. You can also see some of the walls where we applied a dry application of tadelakt plaster (see our previous post to see the wet application of tadelakt in the shower!)

Sylvia T Designs is the premier New Orleans and Gulf Coast region decorative arts firm. Trusted in historic spaces, our skill, care, and experience are unmatched. Owner and master artisan, Sylvia Thompson-Dias, was recently recognized as the “Design Master” in the decorative arts by New Orleans Homes Magazine. If you want the best, reach out and let us know how we can make your space a work of art!

Wouldn’t you like to walk into a shower like this?!? We delivered many spectacular elements in the bathroom and throughout this historic New Orleans home in the Bywater (more coming soon). Here, we did a wet application of tadelakt plaster, a traditional Moroccan technique and material use. It is not only beautiful, with a gorgeous, silky motion, but it is also durable, mold resistant, and waterproof. This comes from not only the specific use of materials but also the skilled timing needed to deliver the end-result. The bathroom walls were done using a dry application of tadelakt, where we expertly matched the color across the wet and dry areas, giving the entire area an organic and cohesive look.

Sylvia T Designs is the premier decorative arts firm in the New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and North Gulf Coast region. We are also the only true tadelakt artisan in the area. If you want the real deal, let us know how we can make your space a work of art! To all of our friends in the US, have a peaceful and wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

Sylvia T Designs is proud to be a firm dedicated to building careers for females in the decorative arts! New team members start as an “Artisan Assistant.” Then, after demonstrating certain skills, knowledge, and consistent quality of work, they are eligible for promotion to “Artisan Apprentice.” From there, after continued success, increased product knowledge, expanded technique, and jobsite management ability, team members can achieve the title of full “Artisan.” This process is important in building confidence and competent, talented artisans. It is also a firm nod to the time-honored trades that built New Orleans and so many other areas around our region. Sylvia T Designs is always “Honoring Tradition and Progress” on every project, every day!

Pictured is our all-female artisan applicator team at Sylvia T Designs (from left) – Sylvia Thompson-Dias, Master Artisan and Owner, Tess Riehlmann, Artisan Apprentice, and Jess Pottker, Artisan. This was from a recent Preservation Resource Center NOLA event – “Beams and Brews.”

For over 25 years, Sylvia T Designs has been bringing beautiful finishes to the New Orleans area. These days, we are the premier decorative arts firm in the Gulf Coast region. Delivering projects large and small, commercial or residential, we are trusted to work in new construction as well as in historic spaces. We bring an unparalleled level of skill, artistry, and product knowledge.

Here is a look at one of our current projects – a complete renovation of an historic Creole cottage in the French Quarter. We are producing numerous elements in the residence including a beautiful Marmorino Venetian plaster finish on the walls and ceilings of the parlor. In this shot, we are applying the base coat to the ceiling. Much more on this element and the overall project coming! Let us know how we can make your space a work of art!
