Venetian plaster, which has the look of marble, brings elegance to this living room. Application requires a great deal of handwork.

When a room needs something extra to pull it together, a faux finish may be just the ticket.

Faux finishing is the technique of creating illusions with layers of paint, glaze and textured materials.

A faux finish can work on walls, ceilings, doors and furniture. It may mimic wood, stone or plaster, or simply provide its own unique visual interest.

Eloise Kubli of Collective Construction & Design in Plantation says faux finishes can provide a variety of benefits. "I use them to enhance the architectural detail of a home, and to reinforce an existing color scheme," she says. "Combining layers of paint can create depth and texture. It can also give extra durability to walls, so it's wonderful for families who entertain a lot or have children." continued
