9 pieces of plaster for a touch of organic texture
In BOHit is On Trend, we ask designers to share their favorite finds of the moment.
Plaster finishes evoke the nostalgia of old-school architecture while providing a pleasantly tactile accent. Composed of a mixture of gypsum, water and sand, the material has traditionally been used for the walls and structural foundations of pre-war homes and is now appearing in a host of sophisticated new styles. “Plaster is reintroduced in new ways that add texture, dimension and a timeless element to a space,” says the designer K.D. Reid. “Plaster decor pieces are organic, soft and sculptural and bring a biomorphic element to any design.”
Intrigued, we asked Reid and the designers Andrea Harvey and gray walker to share their favorite plaster finds and the best ways to incorporate them into a project.

Harvey believes that interior design is more than just aesthetics, it can improve your quality of life. The Maryland-based founder of ASH Interiors and Design approaches each project with a toolbox full of clean-lined silhouettes, earthy palettes and bold prints to foster spaces that are both luxurious and livable.
