Healthy walls make happy homes.
Natural plasters combine all-natural, earth-based materials like clay, sand and mineral pigments to make customized interior wall finishes. By combining a specific recipe with the right application technique, there is a wide range of possible results. Although the ingredients are simple, the result can be smooth or wavy, shiny or matte, sandy or silky.
Plaster is not only attractive, it is functional as well. A room enclosed by natural plaster is comfortable and welcoming. The plaster is a thermal mass that absorbs excess heat and releases when the room cools, helping regulate the temperature. Similarly, the clay in plaster is hydrophilic, meaning it readily absorbs moisture, preventing the room from becoming too humid.
