I should add that it is an apartment in a prewar building with all sorts of rules. I have to have an architect submit basic plans for board approval but I am wondering if I should hire them for full design service. The walls are all plaster and all walls must be closed with plaster. The current electrical system is from the 1950s and I will have to break through the plaster walls to get to them. So I think it is best to get it done all in one shot.BTW, I was thinking of...
I am planning to do a renovation and I am trying to decide if I should have an architect do detailed drawings and supervise the contractor. I have a pretty good idea of the look I am going for but I don't know much about the construction itself.

To set the record straight, Vox is wearing a Minnis fresco (518 - I believe). The photo is atypical because it was taken in bright daylight. It was so dark that the Slewfoot fresco was made as a lighter shade as an alternative. As proof, here is a link to the picture back in 2010.https://stulenstil.wordpress.com/2010/12/06/1594/The Slewfoot fresco was made in 2012. The DWW fresco after that.
