Parade of Homes

We did a Parade of Homes a while back in The Dominion in San Antonio. Anyone who has ever worked on a parade house knows that it is insane, fast and furious. Every contractor is thrown at the job at the same time and everyone is scrambling to finish at the last moment.

The dome in the entry is about 7 feet tall and 8 feet across with the height being about 24 feet. We also glazed the ceiling and walls all along the entry and gallery.

The gallery ceiling consisted of 8 insets, 4 to the left and 4 to the right of the entry. We did a copper patina finish and glazed the walls.

The formal living room groin vault ceiling was fun to do. It is about 20 feet by 16 feet and about 18 feet tall. We came up with the design and freehand painted it.

The domes in the kitchen are about 4 1/2 feet wide and 9 feet long. We painted a bronze patina.

Master bath walls

The master bath was huge. We called it “The Church.” We freehand painted the design, distressed it and then glazed over all the walls.

We painted the beams on the ceiling to match the existing trim and cabinetry.

Cigar lounge walls

We had some fun with joint compound in the cigar lounge with a lizard texture. All the walls were executed in this fashion and it was a big hit.

We created an atmosphere of calm fun in the kid’s room with an open air canopy feel. The designers added fabric to the window and doorways to finish it off and it was very cute.
