Faux Fantasies

Hester Decorating Co. specializes in unique faux finish effects such as Venetian plaster, marbleizing, plaid-effect linen-textured striating, gold and silver leafing, metallic washes, damask, crinkled paper applications, custom murals, and faux alligator skin.

Although the company's specialists are able to produce any work the homeowner or designer asks for, “We always give our input as to alternative finishes that may work better” for a particular space or the desired effect, says Scott Hamilton, Hester's city superintendent and estimator. Wall preparation is critical to the longevity of any finish, Hamilton says, so all of Hester's painters are union-trained and always prepare the wall surface correctly. 847.677.5130. www.hesterdecorating.com.

Six sink designs are available, and range in size.
