WALL TREATMENTS TO REINVENT YOUR INTERIORS
Hand-painted chinoiserie wallpaper can form the perfect, calming backdrop for some heavy antique and ornate furniture. Instead of placing all furniture and effects in a room usually covering the walls, let these beautifully rendered walls be the accent piece. Here the soft, gentle theme of the custom-made wallpaper is a perfect expanse against which the richness of the furniture pieces gets highlighted. Furthermore, the wall colours are smartly made to match the drapes and the upholstery in shades of grey, that imparts a finished look.
Mouldings can turn the ordinary into extraordinary. You can use panel moulding to bring in a luxurious traditional flair. This would depend on the intricacy of the designs within. A crown moulding in dining and living spaces offer a formal look. Adding modern streamlined moulding too adds dimension in the selected space making it decorative and looking truly done up.
The mottled appearance caused by the plastered wall breaks the monotony of a large expansive wall, and creates a contrast that immediately draws attention. Here, the powder blue shade of the walls has been replicated by the sift furnishing of the large sofa and the pouffe.
