During the planning phase of the dining room, it was decided that the ceiling needed to be a bold, rich element in the space. Venetian plaster, a material developed during the Renaissance period in Italy, is applied with a steel trowel in thin layers to form a marble-like surface. The product can hold deep pigments like our formulated version of International Klein Blue. This rich, vibrant blue tone, first mixed by the renown French artist Yves Klein in 1960, took many renditions to emulate. Designer Julie McGarr with McGarr Design and Interiors felt this gave the room just the right vibe and she wove versions of this rich blue throughout. The columns on all four corners of the room seem to hold up the soft curved architectural ceiling, which sets the room apart, while maintaining the same paint color on the walls in this open concept home.
