New company offers decorative designs,patterns

Melanie Royals, founder of Modello Designs, has been a leader in the decorative painting field for the last 15 years. Through her initial business, Royal Design Studio, she helped set the standard for decorative artistry in painted and textural finishes.

Now, with Modello Designs Decorative Masking Patterns, Royals has created a system that further expands the options for architectural surface treatments, including decorative concrete. Possibilities for sophisticated concrete applications include positive, resist and etched patterns; embossed and inlaid designs; and multi-tonal and layered treatments.

Artistic Concrete Effects (ACE) is an integrated system of education, design aids, and coordinated patterns that can be easily learned and applied for highend, custom applications. Design planning and consultation services are also available. For more information, visit
