This dramatic foyer sets a razzle dazzle tone with lacquered wallpaper and glittery lighting and furniture. Wallpaper with a glossy finish like this one is a good way to bounce light around a small or dark room.
Once a storage closet, the loft bar at the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase is now fit to provide homeowners or their guests an easy spot to mix a cocktail. Designer Linda Sullivan shows how good design can happen in unexpected places by paring a blue, lacquered cabinetry with Timorous Beasties' Colonnade Blotch wallpaper and brass hardware.
Floor to ceiling bookshelf wallpaper gives this billiards room the feel of an old library with neutral books encased in black shelves. The white lacquer pool table with a black velvet top is a gorgeous centerpiece. A deep red curtain adds a bold accent color, and a set of black and white striped chairs complement the color theme while adding a new pattern to the design.
To give a walk-in feel to this closet, the sliding door and hanging rod were removed and replaced with custom built-in shelves, drawers and a vanity. The brilliant blue Gracie wallpaper was lacquered for high resistance performance.
For a suburban home in New York, Jason Oliver Nixon and John Loecke with Madcap Cottage used a bold chocolate-hued striped wallpaper to create impact in a foyer that once had no drama. The formerly white-on-white walls now boast major impact. A mirrored console, lacquered hall chair and zebra-print rug finish off the look in the tiny space.
This small print wallpaper has a sweetly vintage feel; its bold blue and orange hue gives it a fresh modern twist. The navy blue lacquered nightstand and whale tale lamp continue the chic-meets-country design theme.
Palm printed wallpaper makes a statement on its own, but when paired with gold, midcentury modern chandeliers and a green lacquer dining table this dining room reaches a whole new level of glamorous eccentricity. Black accents and the neutral hardwood floor balance the bold features.
We took an underutilized closet and turned it into a bar by lining it with faux crock wallpaper, then adding studs and a cherished family photo to the back of the door. The built-in drawers were dressed with vintage brass pulls and sprayed in black lacquer while the tray, outfitted with draw glides, is lit from the shelf above.
