We offer a large variety of decorative plaster finishes expertly utilizing various lime, clay, and marble plasters. We can capture the look your space needs from old world to contemporary, including metallic and high-polished Venetian plasters.

Decorative Plaster Finishes

At Sylvia T. Designs, our team of experienced and highly skilled plasterers can help you achieve the decorative plaster look and feel you desire for your space.

We specialize in various lime and acrylic plaster techniques and products. This includes Venetian Plaster, Grassello, which can produce a striking mirror-like finish, and Marmorino, a semi-gloss lime plaster. We are also your New Orleans area experts for tadelakt plaster, which is a both a functional and beautiful plaster ideal for both wet and dry applications. Another of our specialties is clay plaster, perfect for absorbing sound and reflecting light.

These are all natural lime, clay, or marble-based plasters, which are non-toxic and eco-friendly. They are low or have no undesirable volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

These high-quality plasters are rich in warmness and depth. They are both modern and durable. However, they achieve the classic and elegant presentation of traditional plaster. These multi-sheen decorative plasters can be executed in a range of styles, from a rustic, old world style to a crisp metallic finish. We can create highly-textured finishes and numerous subtle plaster effects in virtually any space in your home or business.

If ever necessary, these plasters are easily patched and repaired, as well.

Some of the preferred brands we use and are well-versed in include Limestrong Paint and Plaster, Meoded Paint and Plaster, Limeworks US, and Modern Masters. We are specialists in color consultation, plaster repair and restoration, and matching existing plaster colors and textures.

Please have a look of some of our decorative plaster finishes and work in our Instagram feed and the gallery below…

We hope everyone is as well as can be, especially all our friends and neighbors here in Southeast Louisiana affected by Hurricane Ida! We’re excited (and relieved) to get back to work today and getting things here at Sylvia T Designs rolling again! That includes this spectacular feature wall in a new construction residence!

If your home or business needs some decorative arts work due to storm damage, we are more than happy to offer free advice on the best way forward. Whether it’s plaster, faux finishes, cabinetry or furniture finishes, murals, or anything else we’re experts on, please don’t hesitate to drop us a line. We’ll steer you in the right direction with honest guidance! Be well, all!

Here’s a shot from a powder room we just finished in a residence in the Greater New Orleans area. We applied a metallic layered strie’ finish to the walls and a soft metallic glazing to the ceiling. You can also see the custom, hand-painted decorative element we added to the front of the vanity. The room now has a warm, yet crisp ambience that stands in stark contrast to the original, plainly painted white space.

Here’s a recent project we wrapped up not too long ago! Among other elements, we delivered this beautiful plaster finish on a large living room wall. It is a textured plaster where we achieved stone-like effects. The look is capped off by using a gold metallic wax that gives it lovely motion and makes it sparkle – especially in this sizable space across from large windows and glass doors.

We’re about to get started on this special new construction residential project! We’ll be delivering various elements in the home. However, the centerpiece is a stunning two-story feature wall in the great room. The client wants a striking marble appearance that is deeply veined. We will be using a gorgeous Grassello lime plaster to achieve the desired look. Stay tuned to see which of these samples makes the cut!

This was such a cool and challenging project in this Old Metairie residence! We created a custom stencil design with leaves and wisteria. Because the powder room is under a curved stair, it has odd angles. We decided that to achieve a cohesive feel that flows and feels larger, we would apply a pearlescent metallic plaster on the walls and ceiling. Then, we would layer the stencils with a soft metallic look starting on the ceiling and falling gently onto the walls. We left the center of the ceiling open with the leaf work softly framing it to appear as a clearing in the forest. The result makes the space feel more open and comfortable, even though it is small and irregularly shaped.

Nearing completion! (Check out our recent post from before we got started…) We carefully and lovingly repaired the plaster walls in this historic Uptown New Orleans residence. The owner wanted to preserve and, where needed, replicate the original color scheme complete with its aged look stemming from years and layers of plaster and paint. We painstakingly matched the look and expertly applied traditional mineral paint and lime wash methods to get it just right. We’ll just add a bit of the desired blue tone and that’s a wrap! Stay tuned…

It is always an honor and a pleasure to be entrusted with a project in any space, but it is especially so in historic ones! We can’t wait to get started on this project in an Uptown New Orleans residence. Here, we will repair the plaster walls. The owner wishes to keep the existing color scheme and aged look. So, after the repair is complete, we use a mineral paint to complete the job. Much of the expertise, beyond the actual application, lies in both matching the colors accurately and then ensuring the paint is mixed to get them just right!
 
As the premier native New Orleans decorative arts firm and the region’s leading decorative plaster artisan, this is right in our wheelhouse! Let us know how Sylvia T Designs can make your space a work of art (or bring something back to be one again)!

Here, we are delivering a Marmorino lime plaster finish to the first level halls of the new Hotel St. Vincent located in the Lower Garden District of New Orleans. This is the second and final coat, fresh after application. The walls will dry to reveal a striking yet subtle finish when all is said and done (stay tuned!) This historic space, a former orphanage, is now a swank 75-room hotel with all the amenities! We’ve brought our skill and artistry to numerous components in the about-to-open property. More soon!

Here is Day 3 of 3 (please see our previous two posts for more!) of our recent Roman Clay plaster project in this Uptown, New Orleans historic residence. You can see how the earthy, yet warm color of the plaster terrifically compliments the stained wood crown molding and wood paneled door. Here, we are wrapping things up by painting the trim. The result was a beautiful look in the dining room with all the elements of the space coming together with the plaster on the walls and ceiling!

Hey All – Here is Day 2 of 3 (please see our previous post) from our recent plaster project in Uptown, New Orleans. We’ve delivered a beautiful plaster finish in this historic residence’s dining room on the walls and ceiling. In this shot, we’re applying the second coat of the Roman clay plaster. So much of the result stems from both the timing of the coats as well as understanding the color process when tinting the plaster and utilizing multiple applications. It takes skill and experience to create the desired texture, look, and finished color when everything is said and done! More tomorrow…

Here’s a shot of a great current residential project in an Uptown, New Orleans historic home. We’re delivering a beautiful plaster finish on the fireplace wall in the master bedroom that is meant to be the centerpiece of the room. It’s a lime plaster application where we are giving it a distressed look by applying layers of lime wash (seen in the pic) to achieve the desired effect. In the end, the color will be lighter in appearance and the wall will have a stunning, flowing feel. It takes expert hands to get the timing and treatment just right to achieve the desired result!

We hope everyone had a very joyous and safe New Year’s! We’re excited for 2021 (aren’t we all?!?) and ready to make your space a work of art!
 
A feature wall or area can transform your residence or business. Grab visitors with your vision, your inspiration, or your brand! Here, we delivered an elegant reception area for a local dentist’s office. We expertly combined paint and plaster to create this flowing and striking reception desk and wall presentation. Thanks to our friend and interior designer. @clairelewisdesigns, for bringing us in on this great project! Click the link in our bio to learn more!

We hope everyone had a very joyous and safe New Year’s! We’re excited for 2021 (aren’t we all?!?) and ready to make your space a work of art!
 
A feature wall or area can transform your residence or business. Grab visitors with your vision, your inspiration, or your brand! Here, we delivered an elegant reception area for a local dentist’s office. We expertly combined paint and plaster to create this flowing and striking reception desk and wall presentation. Thanks to our friend and interior designer. @clairelewisdesigns, for bringing us in on this great project! Click the link in our bio to learn more!

Hey All! Here’s another look at the spectacular new construction residential dome project we shared recently. That last shot gave you a glimpse of the space – a striking grand foyer that boasts a 25-foot wide dome that rises some 7 feet! Here, we’re just starting to apply the final coat of this beautiful metallic plaster finish. It’s a striking, contemporary design that will serve as the centerpiece of the room! More soon!

Here’s a fun video that captures us at work on part of a terrific project! We’re applying a beautiful Marmorino plaster finish to a range hood in an Uptown New Orleans historic residence. It’s one of our deliverables for this special renovation project! Here, we are applying the first of two coats of this lime plaster and, then, you can see the finished product. We custom mixed the plaster to a spec’d color. As a lime plaster, it’s breathable and has no VOC’s. The look is light and airy and brings a fresh, contemporary feel to the kitchen. It takes great skill and experience to execute a finish like this – mixing and making a color match, applying the two coats at the right time, and more. For example, the final color is some 70-80% lighter when dry!

Here’s the finished product of something we shared in-progress a while back. It’s the feature wall in the living room of this new residential construction project in the Lakeview neighborhood of New Orleans! We delivered a beautiful high-gloss Venetian plaster finish. It is lime plaster, which means that it is breathable, has no VOC’s, and is durable. We did a custom plaster mix to match the spec color needed to achieve the right appearance. This gorgeous plaster finish compliments the contemporary design of the graphic brass inlays – a pattern created by our friend and the project’s interior designer, Chad Graci of Graci Interiors.

Here’s a shot of our latest Marmorino plaster application. It brings a beautiful light and airy feel to this residential pool house in the Lakeview neighborhood of New Orleans. It’s a contemporary look that goes great with the natural light that pours in through the large glass doors looking out to the pool area. As it is a lime plaster, it is a great choice for use in a humid environment like a southeast Louisiana pool house!

If you regularly follow us, you already know how much we love tadelakt plaster! It’s a special process utilizing a distinct Moroccan lime plaster technique. Not only is it beautiful, boasting great depth and organic movement, it’s also very practical! It can be used in both wet and dry spaces making it ideal for something like an all-over bathroom application – in the shower, the sink, the walls, the ceiling – the whole thing! It’s also great for other stuff such as pool houses, backsplashes, outdoor kitchens, and more.
 
In this shot, you can see a wet application in a New Orleans residential bathroom. It’s part of several elements we’re delivering on this historic renovation project. Check out the delicate lavender shades and flowing look! It takes a skilled artisan to deliver both an aesthetically pleasing and also highly functional tadelakt finish! Sylvia T Designs is the region’s one and only tadelakt expert. Learn more about this special plaster and how it might just be what you’re looking for to make your space a work of art!

Following on from our last post (please see our profile!), here's a look at the finished product with this component of the job. We delivered a terrific lime plaster finish in this mid-19th century Uptown New Orleans residence. It boasts a traditional Creole color scheme that was made to look aged and distressed by utilizing layers of limewash. We custom tinted the plaster and the limewash to achieve this striking and deeply "NOLA look." From the previous post, you can see how the colors lighten when things are dry. You can also see more of the foyer's scale as the image is reflected in the cool antique mirror! It takes a great deal of skill, patience, and good old fashioned elbow grease to make a finish like this happen!

Sylvia T Designs is the New Orleans area's premier native decorative arts firm honoring tradition and progress on every job, every single day. Whether you're looking for a look that is traditional, contemporary, or something in-between, we can make your space a work of art!

Here's a bit from our current residential renovation in this Uptown New Orleans mid-19th century home. This is in the foyer. It's lime plaster in a traditional Creole color scheme. Here, the second coat of limewash glaze is being applied to distress the plaster and give it the desired aged look. Seems dark? Don't worry! When it's dry and everything said and done, it will be around 70% lighter (stay tuned)! We custom tinted the limewash with pure powder pigments. Timing and product expertise is critical in an application such as this!

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!

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. More soon…
