The past six days have been full of hours filled with seconds of focused work. This home is a massive collection of intelligent decorative choices. Norma Crossland is an incredible woman. She and Ron Crossland are the owners of the most fantastic home I have ever worked in. The attention to detail that she has put into this space will leave you completely captivated. Several times throughout the week as I sat down I realized that I could spend hours sitting just taking in each space. The home is amazing!!
During my time there, I worked on 2 bathrooms: The master bathroom and the powder bathroom. The master bathroom is such a grand space built around a great piece of art and hammered copper tub! Norma asked me to just pick some colors from the painting and develop a wall finish to make it a nice home. I would love to get ready in this space!!
For the powder bathroom we decided that it would be nice to take some of the decorative elements from the artwork and create a fancy, fun space. The walls were a pink tone and I took a design and hand painted it randomly over each wall. Then I took a product and using a caulking gun, applied it over each hand painted design. Once this dried, I added an adhesive and then gold leaf. The finish was hard to photograph but its something that will be a conversation piece for years to come. I am so pleased with the results and I was so happy to hear that Norma was too!
There will be more projects to come in the Crossland home! Please let me know if you have any comments that you would like to share about your own paint experiences and or about the works shown here in this entry.
Make something, anything and then make some more.
