Decorative Finish For Your Bedrooms

First of all, LusterStone is a low luster metallic plaster. It is easily applied by trowel, forming soft metallic plaster. It also has high and low effects and reflective patterns.  

So easy to use, it spreads like butter. And since LusterStone is very forgiving, if someone dings or scratches the wall, it is easy to repair.  

Even more, do you know what the beautiful part is? There is no burnishing required! While most plaster finishes require you to burnish to get a sheen effect, this application does the work for you. 

The colors I used in this bedroom were Champaign Mist and Medallion Gold. I mixed it 20% Medallion Gold to 80% Champagne Mist

Decorative Finish For Small Spaces

This bathroom was created with Moon Glow Silver. You can also apply a stencil design over the top like I did here.

Another perfect place, let’s not forget about the ceilings. Ceilings are by far one of my favorite places to apply LusterStone decorative finish. Because the reflection from the light creates an amazing pattern and shimmer. I used Rhino and Cotton White on this ceiling.

Decorative Finish For WOW Factor

Since the very first thing people see when they walk into your home is the foyer. This is where you want your WOW factor. Because of this a decorative finish is perfect! We decided to match the light fixtures to the wall, to tie it together. I applied Antique Parchment LusterStone to this room.

Similarly, LusterStone is a great way to bring out the architectural details of this bedroom wall. Find your inspirational color and give your walls a pop. In this room, we took the color from one of the stripes to create a cohesive look. Bordeaux was the color used on the backdrop of this wall.
