Do you have a beast of a fireplace or some other strange decor event from Days Gone By that is functional but just downright ugly? Can’t stand it anymore? Fear not! It’s possible, pretty easy and much cheaper to change that look without ripping the whole thing to pieces. I took the above photos while working with Ann Killelea (Ann Art: www.annartfauxfinishes.com). Ann had a client with a brick fireplace who really wanted a marble fireplace with a fieldstone base. No problem!
We usually just visit the bathroom, so it is cool to make it a place you’d like to visit. Which doesn’t mean you have to live there, of course. Make it into: • A favorite vacation beach. Nantucket? • Dunes, waves, water…? • Choppy, wild, waves This is not a grey solution… Well… it could be, actually. Imagine a bathroom with a bleak & stormy grey beach… steel blues & grey in the sky, tree skeletons and tangled seaweed line the tide line. Wind lashes the waves as malignant
