Custom Wall Coverings: Something New for a "This Old House" Project in Essex, MA
Off a rural Essex road, nestled into a glade, the farmhouse and attached barn look perfectly at home here on the historic North Shore. Federal pilasters flank the door, a side ell with front porch houses the kitchen, and the barn attached to the house’s other side wears a handsome cupola. There is even that beautiful, convincing element of historical authenticity: a roof of red-cedar shingles. This is the This Old House shows latest project that just happens to feature custom created wall coverings in one of the home's bathrooms. It may not be the most glamorous of venues to produce work, but White Light, working with interior designer Kristina Crestin, added finishing touches on this masterpiece of a home. Featured in the This Old House Program and covered by local media, including the Boston Globe, it helped educate consumers and tradespeople what is possible today in large format digital imaging and design.
