All The King’s Horses... Aged Plaster Wall Faux Finish
Powder rooms are like jewelry boxes. The smaller they are, the more important it is to create something with a lot of detail because all walls will be seen up close. Within this intimate space, you are enveloped by the images of hunt rides that originated in England.
The elegant equestrian theme in this home is carried into the powder room by using an intricate aged fresco wall finish. First, custom toile style images tell the story of a traditional hunt ride as your eye travels across the room. Over that, an aged cracked plaster technique was applied to represent years of history and tradition revealing the “sport of kings”.
The stria black cabinet finish and chrome hardware were inspired by the colors found in fine leather tack.
This was a very regal and sophisticated equestrian activity that began with the British elite. It is still enjoyed today by equestrian enthusiasts. Being rich in tradition, this powder room represents the fast moving sport that includes all the king’s horses.
