Tin Foil Wall Treatment

Thursday, April 19, 2007

I love this idea from the Kips Bay Decorator's Showcase featured in today's House & Home section of The New York Times. That's tin foil on that wall! Here's what the captions says about it specifically:
Using a simple spray mount, Randall Beale and Carl Lana glued aluminum foil to the wainscoting along the staircase between the entrance foyer and the first floor. “Our inspiration was Andy Warhol’s Silver Factory,” Mr. Beale said. “After all, isn’t a show house about experimentation?”

He added: “The foil nicks, but it acquires a patina, and it is easy to repair. If I was doing this in a real house I would coat the foil with clear polyurethane.”

Hi Laura--I have a friend here in SA who is an artist and I love reading her journal. She has turned me onto other bloggers and somehow I came across yours tonight....I just put my 22 month old down for bed. My husband is at a class and I need to be doing chores, but reading and learning new things is so much more fun! If you have not ever come across Maile's blog..check it out sometime..www.dailyrelish@squarespace.com Cheers!
