One of the characteristics of interior rooms (but not only) is the decor, composed of antique furniture, old and revisited complements, creative compositions and handmade objects.
After experimenting with all kinds of varnish,paint and color on all kinds of surfaces, I discovered chalk paints, waxes and other products, to be used in various ways and with “recipes” invented on the spot, that can change the look of an old piece of furniture. Often the intent is also to give new life to something that would otherwise have been put away or something that fits are part of the context in which it is to be placed. All of this has offered me valuable support in decorating B&B spaces and other spaces.
In previous years I would achieve similar effects with acrylic paints or glazes, but I was unaware of the usefulness of other products and could not achieve the antiquing and aging effects that characterize much of my work today.
This creative field is undoubtedly one of my favorites, to which I devote myself with some constancy and for this reason it is included among the activities of the Rural Art Lab.
In addition to the renovation of old and disused furniture or furniture that needs to be revamped in order to be integrated into the decor, almost any type of object can be created and modified with these techniques. Inside the B & B, old bronze chandeliers, ceiling rosettes, candle holders, small tables, lamps,shelves and other elements were recovered, which contribute to the original and personal character of the rooms.
Thanks to these techniques, it was possible to choose,recover or make the furniture in a very harmonious way, building aesthetic, chromatic and stylistic links that would otherwise have been difficult to achieve.
The goal, however, is to create a very welcoming environment, capable of communicating and producing positive emotions and feelings.
