Our Whole-House Acrylic Venetian Plaster
Our elegant plasters are also true performers. They add depth, soft living color and refined character to extensive areas as a paint alternative to suit fine interiors of all styles, and to solve the limitations of lime Venetian Plaster regarding consistent application, cost, and repair. Kingsmill interior finishes achieve precise control of color, composition, range of sheen, consistency of application with many craftsmen, and efficient application on large scale projects.
Made with Endure Technology®, our custom decorative plasters deliver a wide range of new design/build benefits and an unprecedented guarantee of invisible repair. Our proprietary hand-troweled Venetian Plasters were formulated alongside established manufacturers using advanced acrylics, lime factors and proprietary additives, and in the European tradition, developed by craftsmen in the shop and in the field. They differ from conventional Venetian Plaster in not being as hard to the touch. Our true performance finishes are invisibly repairable, colorfast, crack resistant, water resistant, exterior compliant, abuse resilient, easy to maintain, and remain suitable to a space for years like floors do.
Development of our Acrylic Venetian Plaster and Decorative Plasters Veneers
In 2001 I saw that the luxury home industry didn’t have a practical alternative to paint for finishing extensive walls with a level of understated refinement to compliment interior architecture, beautiful woods, natural stone, refined decor and fine art.
I had a vision of refined surfaces with depth and dimension for the entire interior walls of large luxury homes and so developed fine hand-trowelled decorative plaster veneers as viable solutions beyond paint. In 2001 Europlaster® was born as a whole-house replacement for paint. In 2006 Silk Plaster® was developed to overcome the challenges of specifying lime-based Venetian plaster for entire interiors. In 2008 Kingsmill Encaustic Plaster® was developed for decorative finishes of complex color work. In the process we developed an industry first in wall finishing – a guarantee of invisible repair along with a plethora of design/ build benefits.
Kingsmill has since completed over 65 whole-house contemporary and traditional luxury home commissions with their products and craftsmen mainly in the San Diego area, and is currently expanding into Los Angeles. We also work for our clients in New York, Boston, Dallas and Hawaii. Some designers, architects and builders call our work a game-changing solution to upgrading plain painted interiors.
