I was really taken in with the results of this simple but very effective solution. Before local DC artist Greg Gill deftly faux painted these switch plates, they were a distraction from the diamond tiled backsplash. Now they blend in beautifully! Below are some additional examples of his work.
Love the tree in the corner of this room - it really expands the space.

Currently Greg doesn't have a web site. If you're interested in contact info, let me know.
