Modern Masters in the News!

We love seeing gorgeous projects with our Modern Masters products and it’s been exciting to see them pop up in the media as well! We’ve spied three recent projects in the press and thought that you might like to know a little about them as well – maybe they’ll even inspire the next update in your home!

Painted wood floor is protected with Modern Masters Dead Flat Varnish | Project by Decorative Artist Shannon Kaye and featured in Elle Decor | Designer: Rita Konig

We’ve been a fan of artist Shannon Kaye for a while and love seeing her artistry with our product lines. She recently wrote about a fantastic project featured in the April 2016 issue of Elle Decor. It’s an eclectic North California home and it was designed by the incredible Rita Konig. Shannon wrote a follow-up on her blog on the project and how she used our Dead Flat Varnish over her work to protect the painted harlequin floor.

The talented decorative artist Caroline Lizarraga uses our products in ever more innovative ways and we love sharing her artistry. Rue Magazine recently featured her ethereal Metallic Plaster wall finish in a luxurious dining room in Napa Valley. The home’s interiors were designed by Elena Calabrese who collaborated with Caroline to create the one-of-a-kind treatment, while maintaining her design vision of creating layers of ‘luxe materials with earthy, organic elements for balanced look’. Mission accomplished!

Front Door Paint on This Old House

Have you ever been blown away by a design makeover? This Old House magazine shares one – and the pièce de résistance is our Front Door Paint!  The Home Solutions feature in the March 2015 issue showcases a front porch makeover by Bella Tucker Decorative Finishes that went from absolutely glum to gorgeously glam.

This Old House features Front Door Paint | Project by Bella Tucker Decorative FinishesDana and Brooks Tucker are a decorative painting studio that works on amazing projects daily for their clients. When it came to tackling their own home, they turned their talents to the dark and dreary porch that needed a serious color and pattern uplift. After painting the brick white, they painted and stenciled the concrete entrance floor and chose the color Fortunate from our fade-resistant Front Door Paint line to transform their front double doors. The eye-catching color helps all the elements come together for a beautiful new look and feel.
