Bridget Beari Color Rule #45

Bridget Beari Color Rule: 

Faux Sure

Sometimes a room needs more than just straight paint. I think faux painting is not something everyone can do. Either you have that artistic touch or you don't. You want the faux finish to look subtle and elegant not bold and garish.

I love the copper ceiling of this dining room and how it picks up on the color of the draperies. The walls have a soft glaze to them as well as a painted scroll. This subtle pattern is a great contrast the bold drapery fabric. Plain cream walls would be too uninteresting and solid color too predictable. Even the corner cabinet in this room is faux bois or faux wood grain.

Using a textured wall gives the room a softer glow and even a Old World look. You can add more than one color to a ragged wall. This technique can look as soft as velvet on the walls if done well. It could also look contemporary with metallic added to it. 

Tip: Use left over wallpaper to line your drawers!
