How to Paint Old Plaster Walls by Mona Culberson. Old plaster walls are more temperamental than drywall so you have to put a little more elbow grease into the preparation work before you paint. Don't take short cuts on the prep work or you may find yourself doing repairs later.
Living Room | Peignoir | Farrow & Ball This grey pink has a romantic feel inspired by the chiffon gowns in which ladies traditionally brushed their hair in boudoirs. Created by giving the softest of pinks a big dose of grey, this colour has the ability to feel traditional and modern at the same time.
The walls are painted in Farrow & Ball’s pale pink Setting Plaster. The off-white used on cabinets, paneling, and ceilings is Rolling Fog from UK paint company Little Greene. The lime-washed oak floors feature underfloor heating throughout.
The striking dual-toned walls in the kitchen – half light grey plaster and half dark blue paint – are a fresh take on classic wall panelling; the crisp dividing line is a modern replacement for a dado rail, and with the contrasting lighter shade gives the illusion of height and space.
