My Story

Ricardo Brum, NYC Faux Finishing expert, born in Brazil and trained in the European Technique, studied at Parsons School of design in Manhattan. His work is featured in residential and commercial interiors worldwide.

He works with interior designers / decorators, contractors and private clients. Lending his expertise and guidance, Ricardo offers his clients an extensive choice of finishes which are custom designed for their unique environment.

Ricardo Brum has created finishes that are inspired by nature and even the great artists of our time. His fantasy finish, “Giverny”, inspired by Monet’s gardens, “Koi Fish”, which simulates Japanese pond fish swimming just under the glimmering water’s surface and “Golden Luminous Peacock” are just three of these and absolutely thrilling to see.  They definitely impress all that see them and make a statement in any interior.
