Decorative Borders on Ceilings and Walls
above: Decorative motif painted directly onto existing wallpaper. This design coordinates with the printed fabrics in the room,
and frames antique armoire not shown.
above: Repeating design painted directly onto wallpapered cornice.
Matches the painted swag, above, and co-ordinates with printed fabrics in the room.
above: Underwater theme decorative border painted directly onto cornice.
Above: Decoration of wood beamed ceiling.
The height of the room renders the ceiling area quite dark; the artwork, painted with metalic paints maximizes the effect of the design, creating a rich, heraldic mood, and brings sparkle into the dark .
I also did some faux boix on the stucco area surrounding the wood paneling.
