Get Your Shine On

Thursday, November 18, 2010 | Category: Decorating, Design Inspiration, Trends, Walls

Shiny cars, shiny mirrors, shiny windows…shiny walls?  While the aforemetioned are pretty much preferred shiny across the board, not everyone is head over heels for lacquered walls.  Personally, I think when done right they give a space an elegant sophistication with an undeniable “wow” factor upon walking into a gleaming room.  It is no doubt somewhat of a design leap of faith, but I think the following rooms featured in Elle Decor hit the mark.  Lacquered walls seem to appear frequently in libraries, dens and foyers, but these photos suggest that the finish can actually be very versatile.  What do you think?  Could you get your shine on?

I agree, they can be done and done well in the right space. Obviously they are not for everyone or everywhere. And yes, I could get my shine on!

The shiny walls are great! 😉

Shiny walls? Yes, but only where it really would make a good addition to the design of the room.
It for sure wouldn’t be the right choice for every room.
Less is often times more.

Pictures and different, and similar – an incredible game of color!

I love lacquered walls. Bring on the shine! I’m working on a restaurant where one wall will hold a large aquarium and I think I’ve convinced the client to lacquer the wall surrounding the aquarium.
