STYLISH CONTRAST-CERUSE FINISH


Jak Bed by Jasper by Michael Smith at Decorati


Add a little pizazz and glamour to your wood floors or furniture with a beautiful ceruse finish. Similar to whitewashing, a ceruse finish is achieved by applying a white pigment to the wood, which highlights the grain. The effect can be subtle or dramatic, depending on the color and type of wood. I love the contrast achieved by cerused dark oak, like the stylish Charles Dudouyt desk from 1st Dibs--so fresh and modern! A roundup of my favorites include:


Charles Dudouyt cerused oak desk 1st Dibs  


1940-50's Pair of Oak Lamps from Shine Design Group 
 

Dark Cerused Screen from Newman Studio  


Modern and beautiful ceruse chandelier from Oly Studio
