DesignRed, an upscale faux-finishing studio that consistently elevates this craft to high art, has fittingly opened a “fine art gallery of decorating finishes,” says Bill Borman, the firm’s creative director (and co-owner, with Richard Thomas). The 2,500-square-foot West Loop space will display some 100 samples of finishes, from faux bois to murals to hand-painted wallpapers and Venetian plaster, in sizes up to three by eight feet.
