Case Study 1 - Il Palmetto, Palm Beach, Florida

Il Palmetto is a historic home in Palm Beach FLA. It was built in 1930 and was restored in 2002. The Interior Designer Rebecca Bradley contacted us to create plaster finishes for the interior. The result of our collaboration was a set of finishes custom made for the project. They varied from very smooth and refined to rustic, crumbling finishes. All of the colors were adjusted on site by CSV so that they dried to the desired shade in the Florida heat.

The scope of work was large and challenging. CSV provided on site consultation working with local contractors to do the 52,000 square foot plaster installation. CSV did on site mock ups in every room with variations of each color and finish. This enabled the designer and the client to get a clear idea of what the finished installation would look like.

A local artisan company was trained to do the installations working along side CSV artisans. Technically difficult areas like the 60 foot long barrel vault, 3 story spiral stair and dome were subcontracted out directly to us. The end result was a once in a lifetime project of stunning beauty.
