Positive Space wins both awards for Best Wall Treatment at the 2012 ASID awards!

We are very pleased to announce that Positive Space received both the winning award and the honorable mention for the Best Wall Treatment at the 2012 ASID awards!   You can look for these two projects in the latest issue of Houston Design Resource Magazine!

  

Here is a closer look at the award winning projects!

The inspiration for this barrel ceiling mural came from the ancient frescoes in  the Roman house of Livia Drusilla.   The intent for this project was to imitate the ancient style and  composition  used at  Villa Livia, while creating a work that is truly unique and fitting for the client’s distinct  ceiling feature.    Metallic gold plaster was used as a base for the  mystical landscape.   As layers of thin paint were added,   the imagery was distressed giving it  a look of  timeworn elegance.

The walls are the focal point of this whimsical, elegant powder room.   Large scale tulip blossoms are scattered throughout the room stretching across paneling  and a doorway.    The captivating walls seem to come alive in this unique  space.   The antique dresser, once belonging  to the client’s grandmother, is fitted with a hand painted sink which served as the inspiration for the mural.  Traditional artist oil paint was  utilized  in this project which gave the mural it’s luscious rich color

 

Thank you to the American Society of Interior Designers  for this honor and thank you to my wonderful clients who allowed me to  use their homes as my canvas!

A Powder Room With a Touch of Whimsy

The walls are the focal point of this elegant whimsical powder room .  Large scale tulip blossoms are scattered throughout the room stretching across paneling and a doorway.  The captivating walls seem to come alive in this unique space.    The antique dresser once belonging to the clients grandmother is fitted with a hand painting sink, which served as the inspiration for the mural.   Traditional artist oil paint was utilized in this project which gave  the mural is luscious rich color.

A chocolate brown ceiling contrasts creamy toned paneling, the perfect backdrop for this colorful mural.

An Elegant Space for a Young Lady

I was recently asked to create a chinoiserie style mural for a seven year old little girl’s room.    Soft glazes of pink served as the base coat for the mural and a custom tree was designed  as the focal point of the space.   Exotic birds  and butterflies  dance throughout the wall.  Everything was finished off with a white wash  giving the mural an aged look.  This paired beautifully with the client’s antique style furniture.

The mural reached out across two walls serving as the perfect accent to this beautiful mirror and chair.

Whimsical birds, flowers, and butterflies  remind us that this is a room meant for a lucky little girl!
