AD: "I think there’s been a resurgence in plaster in general, not just Venetian plaster. Recently, there have been technological advances in the composition of lime plaster that have made it much easier to use. So it’s becoming more prevalent and more and more people are getting exposed to it. It's going viral! But I also think there is an enduring and increasing appreciation for natural materials in design. There’s a growing focus on blurring the architectural line between indoors and out. And lime plaster is quite literally the earth on your walls." #likes4likes #interiordesign #designtoronto #Toronto
AD: What colors are most popular?
AD: I like earthy tones: white, beige, gray, brown, and black. But my favorite is white.
"Venetian plaster is really a general term that refers to putty made from fired limestone combined with water. It’s then mixed together to make lime plaster. (So Venetian plaster and lime plaster are the same thing.) And when that lime plaster is applied to walls and exposed to the carbon dioxide in the air, the mixture turns back into limestone. So it starts as limestone and ends as limestone—truly magical! And it's the same stuff our ancestors used in ancient Greece and Egypt. Incredibly, it has endured the test of time, both physically and aesthetically."
