After spending the formative years of her career working in Paris and at the Chateau de Versailles, Sylvie Michel Bilger brought her business as a skilled and versatile decorative painter to New York City. She has created custom finishes for the past 30 years, specializing in fine artistry for private residences.
Sylvie is an absolute joy to work with. Her projects and expertise include murals, stenciling, and intricate trompe l'oeil painting among other artisan techniques. Metamorfaux has recently been developing a new line of wallpapers in collaboration with SuperStrata that we are thrilled to showcase in the near future.
It is fascinating to see the inspirations behind her transcendent work, some of which includes malachite, marquetry, and her love of mixing contemporary patterns with ornate French designs. Her hand-painted tortoise shell wall panels created one at a time for the luxurious Carlyle Hotel in New York are a perfect example of her talent and vision. From the more whimsical artistic creations to the distinctly traditional gold leafing or marbleizing, Metamorfaux always defines a room.
