Shakti Space Designs

I wanted to share with you all the incredible (and painstaking) faux and decorative painting by Lucinda of Shakti Space Designs, based in Portland. She recently worked with an interior designer (Garrison Hullinger) on a basement lounge project that I was so impressed with. As Lucinda pointed out, decorative painting techniques go far beyond sponging and rag rolling. This project is surely proof of that. There is a plastered stencil circle design that looks like wallpaper and a faux crocodile skin tabletop and countertop.

I am so impressed that someone has the patience to do something like this. Lucinda, I applaud you.

The designer was apparently inspired by David Hicks. I would say so...

Woah!! This takes my breath away!!

Initially when I just browsed through I just thought, "Nice wallpaper, nice finishes...." Then I read that it's all PAINTED ON?!!!
