The correct color balance  magnifies the beauty of the space and time- the antique French desk and footstool, Philippe Starck’s Louis Ghost chairs, and traditional decorative accessories.

One thoughtfully placed book in red jacket perfection, one throw pillow, and one simple glass pitcher win the heart of the space.


Lincrusta  embossed wallcoverings master traditional interior design application through the art of subtractive texturing.

The effect is achieved by applying water-based paints on embossed wallcoverings. The desired result is achieved by applying red paint to white acrylic primer base coat. Complete effect by dragging and wiping to create cream highlight.
