California Lime finishes

posted in: Uncategorized | 1

Our Journey in Los Angeles started with visiting one of our main suppliers ” Meoded paint and plaster”.

We finally had the chance to meet the team and their main showroom, we were amazed with some of their new technics and products to be discover soon in Australia with us.

During our meeting we share our passion as natural artisan discussing what is the most trending finishes in Australia and here in Los Angeles, ideas and techniques and our different up coming projects.

Visiting the Beverly hills of the rich and famous and looking at all this breath taking homes and mansions with every corner covered with beautiful Lime render and Stucco plasters as they call it up here in California .

Surrounded by amazing gardens and giant palms we realise they loved there natural finishes in America and it is very enlivening for our team to be here getting inspired by the craftsmanship and lime finishes all around us.

As natural artisan with our love and passion for lime, clay and all things natural seeing that the worlds most successful people and their taste in the highest quality of living, we could see that when it came to choosing what finishes they used on their homes the choices seem to always be based in natural finishes like lime and clay.

Soon we will share some photos of the Zimmerman boutique we are doing here on Melrose Place,

Lime Render could be the alternative for polished concrete

posted in: BLOG, Uncategorized | 0

I went back to take some photos of a previous job we done beginning of February for Sarah Evans from Hassell Architect.

She wanted to achieved a concrete look but without to many imperfections and been practical and easy to maintain  for a kitchen splash back.

We  use a two coats system lime render  with different aggregate such as quartz silica and finest marble dust for last coat, this a old technic of application I learn back in France, the result is quite amazing if you look to replicate concrete slab or a polished concrete wall, this is the finish you want.

for the easy maintenance we seal the wall with one of our water based low-VOC Polyhurthane sealer

Lime plaster and render are limit less  in regard of creativity

Stucco Lamundo at Knight Frank offices in Brisbane is a genius polished plaster

For the last three weeks the team of Idea Creations has been working with Buildcorp to achieve Geyer Architects vision.

This  high end office features all the raw, natural products, from timber panels to concrete floor and green suspended garden contrasting with our white polished paster “Stucco Lamundo”

The result looks fantastic and very sharp , once again the traditional techniques of lime plastering are proving its capability to compliment sharp contemporary design,

We are very devoted to provide always the highest and most exclusive finishes to our client

Good work team 🙂
