star man

This foyer was part of a larger gut renovation for Alex, who has a passion for space exploration and the constellations. So when the blank canvas of a standard steel apartment door presented itself, the idea of a star map mural was too much to resist. We had already painted the walls a deliciously deep color that made for a perfect base coat. Even though the renovation was complete at that point, a decorative painter was called in to apply a gilded Milky Way. Now, the sun from the opposite windows catches the glint at odd moments of the day, bringing it to life. It’s a lovely thing to look at while taking off your shoes, seated on the live-edge bench, and the gold picks up the brass mirror and umbrella stand.
