We’ve had our eye on Kara Paslay of Kara Paslay Designs after seeing some of her gorgeous decorative work using Modern Masters products. We’re excited to feature her for this week’s Modern Mastery Artist Profile! We’ve caught up with Kara, who is an interior designer, window display artist and set decorator for commercials, TV shows and movies. She lives by the motto “Do what you love” and she loves her job(s). As a set decorator, it’s her responsibility to create scenes and sets that tell the story of the characters in the film, leading to a way of thinking that has greatly affected the way she approaches her interior design projects. “My goal is not only to create a space that is beautiful, but one that is also meaningful,” she says.
These unique room dividers were beautifully finished in a combination of Modern Masters Steel Gray and Olympic Gold Metallic Paints! They provide a wonderful backdrop while allowing the decor to flow naturally throughout the space.
These “metal” marquee letters were a custom creation and were given a weathered, patina look using our Metal Effects products! Kara shares how she created this look.
This beautiful dining room table was originally all dark brown and was completely transformed by kara. It was Even given a sleek, white top and was enhanced with a wash of Modern Masters Brass Metallic Paint. The wonderful detail and elegance of this table now shines with ease!
Would you believe us if we told you that this gorgeous, industrial sliding door was MADE with foam? Kara was inspired to create this door after seeing a similar piece on a tv show and used our Metal Effects products to create the look of a heavy, oxidized metal door! She even shares its diy sliding door tutorial on her blog!
What is your dream finishing project?
My husband and I are currently working on bringing our dream project to fruition. We are developing a design show and look forward to the day when we can bring our creations to a television audience. Our goal is to use design to celebrate our clients’ pasts, spur their passions, and inspire their futures with meaningful and unique creations. And you know, nothing pops on camera like some beautiful metallics!
This stunning bath feature wall was given a metallic fish scale ombre effect using a stencil from Royal Design Studio and our Flash Blue Metallic Paint. Kara also shares how she completed this transformation her blog as well!
