4. Louisiana Luxury

This Italian estate has 42 stone columns. The designer set up the original interior colors in putty and gold. The commission was for seven ceilings, dining room wall mural and main area wall finishes. Gallery ceiling panels are putty with a gold decorative design. The dining room mural theme is the competitive “Banquet of Anthony and Cleopatra”. In this contest she dissolves her pearl earring in the wine glass, therefore besting Marc Anthony. The dining room contemporary octagonal tables with Greek key design are balanced by dual chandeliers painted with central ceiling designs. The remaining ceiling is aged in putty with cornice and baseboard moldings antiqued.

The master bedroom barrel vaulted ceiling directly over the bed is a mythological fantasy called “The Organization of the Physical Universe”. Painted within are the 12 Olympians, Four elements of Earth, Four Times of Day, Four Seasons, planets and zodiac signs.

The deep barrel-vault over master bath tub has scrolling stylized leaves and flowers.
