We take great pleasure in featuring Kass’s work in our design series Small enhancements- Big Impact: Faux Finishing. We will introduce you to some ideas on how faux finishes on certain surfaces can make a major impact to the look of your space, creating that “Wow” factor.

We begin the series with Fireplaces/Mantels.

Sometime fireplaces and mantels can be a real bore. By adding a finish to a stark white fireplace it can accent the room and give it some depth, taking your fireplace to a whole new level of unique.  By adding washes, texture techniques and accenting moldings, mantels can attain very different looks. Whether it is a contemporary, traditional or elegant look it all can be achieved.  Below are a few examples of how Kass used her artistry to transform ordinary white mantels into the extraordinary.
