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.
