Think Bella! – “How to Safely Remove a Popcorn Ceiling”

Posted on October 21, 2012

David and I still come across “Popcorn Ceilings” from time to time. The use of asbestos in the materials used to create a Popcorn Ceilings was banned in 1978, but the health risks still exist. Many homes today, that were built in the late 80’s with Popcorn Ceilings, still may have asbestos in their ceilings. The health risks are serious, if you have an Asbestos Popcorn Ceiling. Before begining any removal of your Popcorn Ceiling, have a sample sent to an EPA Certified Testing Lab to be safe.  Here is a great video by Ron Hazelton regarding How to Remove a Popcorn Textured or Acoustic Ceiling.

Think Bella! – “Considering a New Decorative Finish, Faux Finish or Italian Finish?

Posted on October 20, 2012

Less is More… almost Always! On New Projects, David and I are big believers that you really do not need alot of Decorative Finishes to change the drama of an entire project. You are looking for a “unique area”, where you can introduce a new Texture or Effect that will “Interrupt the Senses”.  Thats the Key!  One small area, can have everyone that views your home going… Wow, that was so Cool!  What was that finish?

So… from our experience, in most homes, less really is more. You just need to introduce a “Taste”  in a few areas. Exceptions, unless you are on a Grand Castle like we were last year, then the sky is the limit for effect and drama…
