Driscoll Design Group: IT'S ALL ABOUT PAINT on walls

One dramatic tool we use daily is PAINT!  It's a phenomenal way to enhance a space subtly or with great strength.  Almost every project Driscoll Design Group works on has a paint scheme that is well planned, executed with precision & always has a punch.

I've got many examples of decorative paint use & inspiration I would love to use in upcoming projects.  Look for several back to back posts this week.

This beautiful dining room was designed with a custom painted wall mural as the main focus.  It's subtle, elegant & beyond remarkable.  The house is located on a Kentucky farm, smack in the middle of horse country.  We instructed Andrea Sims, artist, to use her magical eye & capture the essence of the property.  She did an amazing job & I still love it today.

This beautiful wall of script was painted many, many years ago.  It's a passage from the Odyssey & needed restoration.  We commissioned Stephanie Jones (aka Paint Queen) of Me & Mrs. Jones Painted Finishes to lightly clean, wax & polish this wall.  Isn't it fabulous?

Well, I couldn't design a restaurant without fab restrooms.  After all, it's a private place, but one that has much importance.  Again, we called on Me & Mrs. Jones Painted Finishes to take our concept to reality & here's the finished product.  Love it!!!

This bedroom was another project for Stephanie Jones.  She took a fabric we deemed worthy of stencil, used it as inspiration & created a wall that ROCKS!
