Walls...sigh...how to divide the space into a pleasing composition?
Sometimes, just a painted grid or play on a greek key will do it!
Or maybe a quiet approach, with simple trim ?
If you need to add weight, you can grid the wall with trim!
Sometimes you don't have to divide the space, a design can spill over into other sections as in this lovely chinoiserie scene.
Need some interest on a focal wall? This design not only gets your attention, it adds height to the small room.
Feeling a little "boxed in"? Bring the outdoors to you with some simple graphic designs of foliage! Done in a faux inlaid approach, this room is now rich and spacious.
Is there a small neglected space at the top of the stairs or at the end of the hallway? Dress it up with a little baroque ornament!
Who said walls have to be rigid? Go all out and create a tufted backdrop for your furniture...whatever you do, let your personality reflect in your walls!
