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…

Here’s a look at a recent residential renovation where we did some terrific work in this Uptown, New Orleans home. In this shot, you can see some of what we did in the kitchen (we did all the walls and the ceiling, too!) The owner wanted a rustic French provincial country look to complement the fixtures and decor. We delivered a gorgeous Marmorino plaster finish that shows some beautiful and subtle motion along with lovely depth. We also did a custom color match with the plaster. What’s more? We sealed the finish to provide protection and cleanability from kitchen stains and grease!

Here's a finished shot (please see our previous post) of our residential Venetian plaster ceiling finish. The bold and highly mirrored finish adds dramatic elegance to the spacious dining room. Though the picture doesn’t do it justice, you can see how the abundant natural light beautifully reflects off the plaster. The striking appearance is further enhanced by the ceiling bays. Extensive hand-burnishing with a large dose of key timing throughout the application (all while working on a ceiling!) allowed us to achieve this look from the lime-based plaster.

Sylvia T Designs is the premier decorative and functional plaster artisan firm in the Gulf Coast region. If your job calls for plaster, always use the best! Our skill, expertise, and product knowledge are unmatched. Let us know how we can make your space a work of art!

Here's an in-progress shot of a gorgeous finish we are delivering on a high-end residential project in the New Orleans area. It’s lime-based Venetian plaster featured on the home’s dining room ceiling interspersed between several ceiling bays. The final coat has been applied and now we are hand-compressing the plaster to achieve the desired mirrored look that you can see is starting to manifest. This takes great skill, timing, and patience to achieve.

It’s a challenge yet a joy to create a finish like this when working on a ceiling! We’ll have more on this project deliverable soon!

Here's another look at our recent project in Baton Rouge for Kenneth Brown Design. This is the primary bedroom in this residential remodel. We used lime paint on the walls and ceiling.

It’s always a pleasure to work with the inimitable Kenneth Brown Design! This fantastic project is a residential remodel in Baton Rouge, where we delivered a few elements. Here, you can see the amazing fireplace surround. The design is impressive and serves as the focal point of the living room. We used lime plaster, with a bit of a heavier grain, to create a noticeable, striking texture. Skill and attention to detail were a must to achieve this look on the scalloped surface. Shout out to Gator Millworks for the tremendous woodwork!

Here’s another element we delivered for this terrific residential new construction project in the Lakeview neighborhood of New Orleans. We shared the spectacular feature wall in the great room a while back. Here on the dining room’s feature wall, we did a clean Venetian plaster look that demonstrates beautiful motion and perfectly complements the home’s open space and modern, clean appearance.

Here’s another look at some of our work in this historic residential renovation project in the Bywater of New Orleans! You can see the beautiful plaster work that is on all of the walls in one of the home’s primary bedrooms. Great skill and intensive technique are required to achieve this look! Please see our previous post for more on the decorative plaster finish.

You can also see some of the trim work we did all around the room, in this case, around the French doors. We created an aged, weathered look that compliments the plaster wonderfully! Sylvia T Designs is the region’s premier decorative arts firm. Let us know how we can make your space a work of art!

Here’s a shot from an ongoing renovation project in the Bywater of New Orleans. We’re delivering extensive decorative art and plaster work throughout this historic residence. Here, we delivered a beautiful decorative plaster finish on the walls of one of the primary bedrooms. We created a custom color match with the Marmorino plaster we used, spec’d by the interior designer, Sara Costello. Then, we applied multiple layers of custom colored (different colors!) lime wash. The striking result is a distressed, aged look that boasts incredible motion and mesmerizing detail.

Does your job need plaster? Does your client want it in their space? Or, as a home or business owner, did your architect or designer spec plaster? Be sure to reach out to us! There is a whole world of plaster out there that can achieve various looks and can work in various budgets.

Here's a shot of the completed mural (please see our previous post) from this luxury “staycation” townhouse in the Warehouse District of New Orleans. Pictured is the center panel, of three, showing St. Louis Cathedral. The owners wanted a fun, New Orleans-themed mural that also takes inspiration from Mardi Gras (left panel) and music (right panel). We also gold leafed the frames around each to give it all some extra pop. Please see our IG story for more on this fun project!

We hit the ground running here at Sylvia T Designs in 2022! Lots of exciting projects to share! Here is an in-progress shot as we got going on a recently completed project in the Warehouse District of New Orleans. This is a terrific staycation townhouse where we delivered a fun, New Orleans-themed custom mural and a cool faux brick breakaway plaster on the façade of the bedroom loft. The latter compliments the walls of the building. Much more on this and other current projects coming soon. Stay tuned!

Tadelakt is all the rage these days! It’s both beautiful and durable. It can be used in both wet (showers, tubs, sinks) and dry (walls, ceilings) applications. There is a lot of stuff on the market these days but true tadelakt is a traditional Moroccan technique with a specific materials approach. Achieving the desired look, which can feature gorgeous, organic movement, and the needed functionality requires the right hands and experience. Sylvia T Designs is the region’s only true tadelakt artisan. We have the know-how, product experience, and artistry to bring this special plaster to your spaces!

Pictured here is a residential renovation in an historic property located in the Bywater neighborhood of New Orleans. We are delivering numerous elements in the space. In this shot, we did an all-over tadelakt plastering in the main part of the bathroom (walls and ceiling) as well as in the stunning walk-in shower. More soon… Let us know how we can bring tadelakt into your life and make your space a work of art!

Hey All! The feature wall is completed and we’re ready to move on with other elements for this special residential new construction project! This stunning centerpiece to the home’s great room is two-stories high and shows the deeply marbled look the owner was seeking. We used a special Grassello lime plaster to achieve the result. You can also see the final, handpainted Arabic script lettering using a custom mixed metallic gold. We’ll be sure to share more pics when the entire space is completed!

Hey All! The feature wall is completed and we’re ready to move on with other elements for this special residential new construction project! This stunning centerpiece to the home’s great room is two-stories high and shows the deeply marbled look the owner was seeking. We used a special Grassello lime plaster to achieve the result. You can also see the final, handpainted Arabic script lettering using a custom mixed metallic gold. We’ll be sure to share more pics when the entire space is completed!

Native to New Orleans but bringing a worldview that ranges from the traditional to the modern, we have been the area’s go-to decorative arts firm for over 25 years.

Hey All! Sure, we’re known for our top-flight decorative plaster finishes, our skilled plaster repair, classic and custom stencils, beautiful murals, and much more. But, we’re also experts in handpainted signage and lettering. Here, we’re painting two important Arabic expressions, including the Basmala, on our residential feature wall project. The image shows the script’s base coat using yellow paint. It was completed using a custom mixed metallic gold. You can see the final result very soon when we post the finished pics of this fabulous feature wall! Stay tuned!

This stunning feature wall is really coming together! It’s the centerpiece of a new construction residence in the Greater New Orleans area. The 25-foot-high wall sits in the great room. The homeowner wanted a deeply veined marble look. We are using a Grassello lime plaster to do the job. Here, you can see the left section where the plaster is complete and dry. We are applying it to the right section and you can see it is still wet. The middle is primed and ready for the final phase. Stay tuned for more!

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…

It’s also an honor and privilege to have a team/family member like Jess! She joined us in October 2019 and hasn’t looked back since! She brought talent, determination, and a special attitude to the table. Starting at the beginning, she became an Artisan Apprentice with much more to come.
 
Visit our website (link in bio) and check out our “About” page to learn more about Jess! Sylvia T Designs is the New Orleans area’s premier native decorative arts firm. Let us know how we can “make your space a work of art!”

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!
