We’re sure you’ve seen photos of grand chateaus and European buildings, with walls finished in beautiful venetian plaster. With an expert’s touch, this marvelous lime-based plaster can be made to look smooth and silky or like rough and rustic stone. It can be custom tinted, ensuring a unique finish every time. Darrell Morrison of South Surrey is one of the only folks in our Fraser Valley with the skills to create these stunning finishes for walls, ceilings and other surfaces. His company is called Decorative Painting & Plastering Concepts, and his work is gorgeous!
From multi-million dollar properties to small retail and residential spaces, Darrell and his team offer custom stucco treatments and interior painting services throughout the Fraser Valley & Lower Mainland. Decorative Painting & Plastering Concepts exclusively paints with Benjamin Moore products, and all of the finishes they use are environmentally friendly with little to no VOC‘s. Take a look through the gallery of custom wall treatments and painting projects. Such talent!
This exceptionally creative entrepreneur brings to the table a great business sense, a strong work ethic, a sense of humour and the undeniable entrepreneurial spirit. Darrell began his entrepreneurial journey at the young age of 15 with a skateboard branding business!
We wondered how Darrell chose this specialty trade as his career. When he rented homes as a young man, he would paint and renovate – not something landlords often find with renters. Changing the look of a room or home with paint or plaster was interesting to Darrell. He decided to apprentice under a talented artisan in Phoenix, Arizona. It was there he learned the process and skills of his trade. After completing a full interior plaster, Darrell knew he’d found his passion.
Darrell shared that his absolute favourite part of running the business is sales. He loves explaining the unique applications he can create for a client, and then seeing their faces when he delivers on that promise. Darrell now has an apprentice working under him. He says it’s exciting showing the ropes to an eager newbie, as he was.
You’re one creative guy, Darrell! Thanks so much for sharing your talents with us.
