I need some aesthetic opinions from the artful or at least the opinionated about my art niche. A while back I carved out a typical ovolo molding from a piece of marble to fit over the bare sheetrock that was the base of my art niche.
Here it was in process... I'd recommend using a zinc cutout of the profile taped on if you try this at home.
And, here is how it looks at the moment (with tiles stacked precariously).
I can't decide if I want to
1) put matching tile marbles cut in hundreds of rectangles with carved stone on the front edges, giving it a solid stone appearance OR
2) put carved stone on the front edges all the way around the perimiter and just plaster the back with a fresco (no designs, just antiquated color).
Does the marble tile approach remind of a WC?
I also was thinking of incorporating some gold Orsoni tile, but I'm not sure of how to make that look good unless the entire thing was mosaic...
Non riesco a decidere se voglio
1) mettere tegola marmi tagliati corrispondenti in rettangoli con pietra intagliata sul fronte bordi, dandogli l'aspetto di una solida pietra ...
2) mettere in pietra scolpita sul fronte tutti i bordi modo per aggirare il perimiter e solo la parte posteriore con un affresco (non i disegni, antiquato colore solamente).
