At a traditional Park Avenue apartment in NYC I executed a classic grey glazing technique in the dining room. The walls received a stippling gaze and the woodwork a soft striae.
The previous look was dark green, and a bit dated. The new grey finish still works very well with the dark antique furniture, but it gives the room a more contemporary feeling.
To get this particular result I made a record amount of color samples, ranging from all kinds techniques to many shades of grey, to variations in green and even eggplant. The client is a creative herself and has a very discerning eye.
