About Venetian plaster

Contemporary House based in Vancouver is certified in Venetian plastering, a high-end, natural, lime and crushed marble wall and ceiling finish. All our materials are carefully sourced from companies such as GreenWorks and Tetureline to complete your project to the highest standard.

Lime plaster  Venetian plaster is a wall and ceiling finish consisting of plaster mixed with marble dust and applied with a spatula or trowel in thin, multiple layers, which are then burnished to create a smooth surface with the illusion of depth and texture. Contemporary House offers a range of Venetian plaster application techniques designed to achieve different textures and finishes.

Tadelakt – Natural lime powder and stone granules originating in Morocco, Tadelakt is renowned for its exotic finish. It has a smooth, slightly shiny appearance and is a popular finish in bathrooms.

Intonachino – Natural lime and ground marble. This plaster finish is uniformly rough with slight variations in colour intensity typical of lime-based products.

Marmorino Carrara – Natural lime and crushed marble powder. This finish hails from the Renaissance period and delivers a traditional, marble-like finish with soft colour and subtle shadings. It can be used as an alternative to costly finishes like marble and ceramic.

Marmorino Classic – Natural lime and ground marble Marmorino Classic also offers marble-like finish, with an even finer grain than Marmorino Carrara. It can deliver a high-gloss finish with undetectable workmanship.

Venetian plaster can be easily customized to your project’s specific needs. The colour of the plaster can be selected to precisely match your selected paint colour, and finishes range from traditional to contemporary and coarse to highly glossed.
