Julia Ideson Library

Houston, TX

As part of an overall restoration of this historic library interior, EverGreene was contracted to restore interior finishes throughout the building.

EverGreene cleaned and refinished the wood surfaces in the “square tunda,” applied glaze finishes to the walls, cleaned and lightly inpainted the decorative frieze, and gilded the banisters and hand- rails. On the ceiling, EverGreene cleaned and, where necessary, repainted the coffers, and selectively inpainted the ceiling rosettes wherever there was loss.
