Before I left the Beacon Hill job site, Stacy and I completed one more ceiling. This is another version of the Hammered/Brushed Steel Ceiling we are doing at the Newbury Street Salon.
As dramatic as this stone tiled shower is, it appeared too cold when the ceiling was white. Adding the silver to the ceiling brought out the silver in the tile, which you previously, barely noticed. It also just totally changed the look of this bath and gave it the warmth it lacked. You definitely want to feel warm in a bathroom!
This close up shot of the ceiling shows the brushed steel border, with rivets and the hammered steel center. At the salon we chose to do 10" wide, horizontal brushed steel panels vs. a border. Because this is a much smaller ceiling, the design worked better as a border.
Oh, I almost forgot! I have one more finish to do in this room! Once the ceiling was done, the homeowner decided the pale pink walls needed a little something more. Using the wall paint, I did a sample board and just washed on, using a cotton tee shirt rag, some of Golden’s Interference Gold. The Interference line is very pricey, but luckily, a little goes a long way. I added a little of a product called "Open Time" to the Interference paint. This allowed the paint to be "washed" onto the sample much easier. The Interference paints change with the light. Even though I am using a gold tone, because it is going over a very light pink, it is absorbing the silver tone from the ceiling and will give the walls a soft, shear, shimmered silver glow.
