Million Dollar Decorators Coming Soon and Home as Work of Art Idea
I have my DVR all set to record ‘Million Dollar Decorators’ beginning Tuesday, May 31st. From the looks of this advertisement they have classical aspects combined with modern furnishings. Another great reality show idea is showing fine artisans and craftsmen creating interiors that are works of art. Who knows maybe my family business Beaux-Artes and Heavenly Home Designs with a designer, fine artist/faux finisher, carpenter, manufacturer and classical historian will do it. The wallpaper in the ad reminds me of the large scale damask from Graham & Brown I showed in my blog Timeless Damask.
There are plenty of design on a budget shows, quick makeovers and shows about creating great looks using mostly contemporary furnishings and surfaces. I would love a show that showcases the techniques and skills that create rooms that are works of art. I plan on posting how-to videos for creating classical looks soon and also featuring great artisans and craftsmen from all over the US.
This powder room is an example of the kind of work I am interested in.
The entire powder room, ceiling and walls were done in venetian plaster. The panels below the chair rail duplicate the pietre dur marble top that was used for the vanity. The client hated to cover it and we were able to duplicate it using venetian plaster.
The inspiration for the room and our panels.
