{décor inspiration : high gloss & pure drama}

by roséline


. . . have always adored the glamour and high drama of lacquered walls -- pale blue, deep red [& here], deep blue, green, chartreuse, white [& here], navy, raspberry, and even yellow -- today, the look is often created using combination of high gloss paint and acrylic water-based varnish, a process that can be costly, time-consuming and labour-intensive, but often, the results are well worth the trouble; however, recently came across this stunning entryway and discovered that it was done in a lacquered affect wallcovering [the shade used here is eyeliner] -- isn't stunning? and best of all, there are also shades of champagne shimmer & gold . . .

Beautiful! I definitely love the look of a lacquered wall. I don't know if it is an element I would ever place in my own home, but I do love looking at the pictures! :-)

Such glossy lacquered walls work best in ancient homes with high ceilings and spacious rooms. Or else in special designed mansions with the same spacious setting.
Wishing you a great upcoming weekend.

Such a classic and elegant décor! It requires very high ceilings and good colour coordination, but I would definitely give it a try. I'd love to combine it with silver, gold or turquoise. Or even hints of neon!
