Italian Restaurant Faux Painting

When you think about the north end of Boston, you think about great Italian restaurants.  There are actually over 70 restaurants in the area – and soon there will be one more opening!  To get the space ready, the owner is having a full renovation done, and I was happy to be a part of it.  Like most north-end restaurants, the space is small, but filled with charm.  This particular space features an exposed brick wall, a scalloped ceiling and a dark wood bar to give a rustic but modern feel.

To further enhance this look, the owner worked with the painter on a paint scheme for the non-brick walls that uses a light yellow as the dominant color, which is offset by a prominent but appropriately rustic orange color.  To take this a step further, they decided to go with a textured look for these accent walls – which is where I came in.  Using a glazing technique, I was able to create this old-world plaster look, while still keeping it sharp and contemporary looking.

Below are a couple of pictures showing the before and after of these walls

Enjoy!
