Rooms with a View is a high-end interior design show created by late Dean of American Design Albert Hadley, and currently chaired by designer Thom Filicia. Celebrating its 22nd year, the event occurred this past November in Connecticut and talented designers came together to create 12 one-of-a-kind interior design vignettes.
Cynthia Davis of Cynthia Designs – we’ve featured her before in our Modern Mastery series – used Modern Masters products to finish the vignette walls in collaboration with designer Stephanie Rapp of Stephanie Rapp Interiors. Ms. Rapp wanted a sexy, smokey room for her room vignette. After reviewing fabrics and discussing the mood Stephanie wanted to create, she and Cynthia selected a sleek, metallic finish for the walls.
The walls were first base coated in a matte black paint. Then, Black Panther Metallic Plaster was troweled on as a thin texturing layer. Using the Modern Masters trowel, they created small peaks and while wet, knocked the peaks down to a smooth finish allowing for some variation in texture.
