Palatine, IL – November 16, 2005: Sharon Damisch, president of decorative painting company Only Faux You, has recently been announced as Designer of the Month for December by the Chicago Institute of Fine Finishes (CIFF).
In addition to being honored at a reception in Chicago on November 16th, an article about Damisch and her impressive work, including photos of her most recent projects, will appear on the Chicago Institute of Fine Finishes website.
Kathy Carroll, owner of the Chicago Institute of Fine Finishes, noticed Damisch’s natural talent and eye for creative design while Damisch studied under her instruction. “Sharon really impressed me with her ability to create unique finishes and apply what she’s learned in different circumstances,” explained Carroll. “Her adaptability, exceptional creativity and great people skills will make her a great success.”
The criterion used by the Chicago Institute of Fine Finishes to select a Designer of the Month includes exemplary performance, widespread use of diverse faux techniques and contribution to the faux finishing community. They also select certain designers whose work is uniquely creative and represents newer ideas or a different twist on the business.
“I’m flattered that CIFF has chosen to recognize me and give me such an honor,” said Damisch. “While I love what I do as a faux finisher, I work hard to understand my clients’ needs and wants when working with their space. A commitment to exceptional communication and interpretive skills is what takes my job to the next level.”
Damisch studied at the Chicago Institute of Fine Finishes and is certified in more than 50 finishes, including the application of SkimStone®, which is the latest color and texture surface enhancement for concrete floors and laminate tops. The finishes that Damisch creates bring life to any room, and have been used by realtors and home sellers to enhance property sales value.
Only Faux You fills a very distinctive place in the interior design industry by centering on the creation of truly custom finishes that demand attention in any room. Damisch works closely with others in the industry including interior designers, builders, and architects, always with the goal of providing the customer with a space with which they can be proud.
