All That Glitters is Not Gold

From the beginning, it was important to us at the Tree Frog Night Inn to build something unique and beautiful in an eco-friendly way.  Sometimes, this involved employing old-fashioned, natural methods as opposed to brand new technology. Our interior walls are one such instance.  In the Mediterranean Suite, most of the walls are earth plaster covered with naturally pigmented lime wash. The burnishing technique employed in the multiple coats in the Mediterranean bedroom might elicit a feeling of sleeping under a brilliant blue sky dappled with puffy white clouds. The Coast Salish walls are clay with natural pigments, furthering the warm, cozy feeling of the Suite.  When the light reflects off some of the naturally-occurring minerals, the walls may glitter, as if suffused with gold or gems.
