Paint and Plaster Restoration
Paint color is a highly visible expression of a room or property’s time period as well as the home owner’s taste, preferences, and mood. Paint should be carefully chosen and we can help with that. We have a palette of historic colors we’ve used on wood trim and plaster surfaces in historic properties for more than 40 years. These colors seem to transcend short-term trends and consistently produce beautiful, serene, and timeless interiors.
