Park Ave Penthouse

Textures Featured: Notti Finish & Marble Finish

The Park Avenue Penthouse that we completed in 2017 is one example of how Venetian plaster can be beautiful while still being subtle. This client had many large pieces of artwork that they wanted to highlight, and didn’t want the texture on the walls to overwhelm or take away from the pieces.

When visiting the penthouse for a consultation, Eric noticed that the owner’s style was modern, sleek, and luxurious. He wanted to bring these ideas into the textures that were created to express and enhance the aura of the owners and the apartment itself.

The foyer and dining room walls were covered in a classic off white Marble finish to bring a sense of subtle movement and visual interest to the walls, while not detracting from the beautiful art pieces.

The ceilings were covered in a custom Notti finish, with the ceiling in the foyer being a deep silver, and the ceiling in the dining room being an off white to flow with the walls, and create the illusion of higher ceilings. The metallic finish of both ceilings creates beautiful instances of light and shadow when the light reflects of its surface.

Every step you take in both rooms highlights a new angle of the beautiful textures both on the walls and on the ceilings.

Notti & Marble Finish



Linen cloth goes back tens of thousands of years; in Pharaonic Egypt it was a symbol of light and purity and was displayed as wealth. Silk, developed in ancient China, was the most sought-after luxury item traded to Europe. Now the texture and luster of these fabrics – with a final coat of shimmering silver or gold – gives any wall a stunning three-dimensional effect and turns it from simple to rich and bold.


“Notti Veneziane” means “Venetian Nights” and this finish evokes it.  At night in Venice, the lanterns come on, creating shimmering reflections in the lagoon, and the city’s ancient plaster walls gleam in the moonlight. Similarly, our metallic pigments change in the light, on a texture as rich as Venetian leather and as velvety as a Venice night...undeniably romantic.


The birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, Tuscany’s heritage endures in its stunning landscapes, its great vineyards, and its charming villages. The Medici villas and Tuscany’s grand cities of Pisa, Lucca Siena and of course Florence are all rich in culture and architectural majesty. This finish, with many colors and textures with which you can customize, brings the essence of this historic region into your home.


Venice is a city of great depth: layer upon layer of history and civilization emerge in every glorious building. This technique uses layers and layers of plaster to create the rich look and feel of three dimensions. Whether you choose Antico Stone, Antico Rain or Antico Vein, each additional layer adds more beauty every time you look.


In Roman mythology, Venus was the goddess of beauty and love. The most famous sculpture of her, the Venus de Milo, was carved in a marble that outlives all time. For our Venus Marble- Effect Finish, we use natural components to create a marble-like appearance – glossy and smooth and with a Venus Metal topcoat that plays with the light in your room. In all, it’s a finish of beauty you will love.


Venetian plaster has no single look or feel. It can look like marble, travertine or limestone. It can be highly polished – matte, satin or glossy – or more tactile. Our Venetian plaster can match your current wall finish or – with endless color options, textures and designs – together we can create a finish that is truly one of a kind. Whatever the choice, it will have a depth and beauty unmatched anywhere.
