gores paint studioOur work in the decorative arts informs our textiles….our work in the textiles informs our decorative arts.

Lavishing pigments, gold leaf or venetian plaster on a bare wall is an art form in itself.  It can warm a cool austere room or streamline a collection of rooms. We use older techniques of the scenic arts coupled with crafted furniture finishes to bring a sense of hand to décor.

Paint Studio

Murals of 'serenity' or 'play,' finishes of 'faux' or 'finery'...

...le gracieux's paint studio turns simple surfaces into art forms.

The decorative arts play an important role in our work as artisans in both paint and textiles.
