About Us

Ami and Stephanie Mesner Artist and Owners ArteriorsWe Dream in Colors

We are a husband-and-wife team of fine artists who turned our love and knowledge of the fine and decorative arts into a 35-year-old company that creates custom surface designs for the architectural and interior design industry.

We met as students at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and transformed our arts practice into Arteriors. What began as initial work in theater design as scene painters and props makers evolved into the decorative arts company we are today, specializing in mural arts, gilding, Venetian and decorative plaster, faux finishes, metallic finish, metal leaf and designer finishes among others. Our work is for residential and commercial clients in Boston, Cape Cod, the greater New England area, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, New York, the Caribbean, Florida, and Atlanta.

Arteriors, based in Natick, MA, handles professional design projects from idea and design creation through to finished application in a versatile, detail-oriented, expert manner.

We act as flexible team players with our clients, knowing how to handle professional design work and able to pivot as needed along the way, capable of making last minute adjustments along the way to completion. We are considered masterful at taking the design brief and bringing it to a successful design solution and completion.

Dedicated to using eco-friendly decorative paint and plaster materials that are not only beautiful when applied, but responsible, we apply water-based paints and lime-based plasters, such as Venetian plasters, and American clay surface finishes which are safe, natural, and sustainable and can improve indoor air quality.

We dream in colors and we love what we do.

Amiel Mesner, Principal

Ami was in the army. He also loves fine art. Which helps explain his ability to manage the aspects of mobilizing large civil and commercial design projects for our clients. He is the son of a paint chemist. And he went to art school which makes for a mix of scientific expertise and aesthetic confidence. Ami currently paints dramatic seascapes, a pet subject matter since his childhood overlooking the Mediterranean. He makes the best hummus east of the Hudson. Weekends he can be found cooking up a feast in their vast blue and yellow kitchen, hiking with their super-dog, Shiloh, or kayaking in their pond, grandsons in tow.
