Where all things beautiful collide

I had to have a little fun with the title of today’s post, all about one of my latest obsessions, plaster!  Whether the real deal, or just textural like plaster, I’m loving this chalky white look on walls, furniture, and art.  I’ve mentioned previously that I’m loving less color, and more texture right now, so this old material is right in line with that feeling.  I’ve taken a look back at some favorite rooms, pieces by the likes of John Dickinson, and lighting and sculpture by the amazing Swiss sculptor Alberto Giacometti that incorporate the material (or something similar).  So, pour yourself a drink, sit back, relax, and get plastered!

In a wood-paneled dining room, a cool white sconce and tree trunks made of what appears to be plaster or resin feel fresh and modern.

Inspired by the scratch coat under Dutch tiles, designer Jeffrey Bilhuber covered the walls and ceiling in his Long Island kitchen with a textural material.
