Hello Steven, What a pleasant surprise to find one of our major projects featured in your article. Thank you. The Mission style home in Denver you spoke of has an authentic Italian lime plaster finish. Our company installed it. The product is Rialto, manufactured in Trieste Italy. Here is a picture of me working on one of the walls finishing the scallops. And a view through the bell chamber.
