We have seen lacquered objects for a while now; furniture, accessories, nail polish, even shoes and jewelry, but what about taking the high gloss finish to new places?  Adding this liquid looking finish to the walls and ceilings of interiors will definitely elevate the elegance in any space!

Lacquered walls are a great solution for high-traffic areas as the finish is super durable and hard as nails.  It also is great for darker spaces as the luster will catch and reflect light, brightening up any space.  This way, you can take a risk and go dark in color.

It is also a unique and unexpected wall treatment, a great alternative to wallpaper or a decorative faux finish.  Lacquered walls will surely create a dramatic backdrop to any type of room.

One of the pieces to the room puzzle that usually gets very little attention is the ceiling!  Okay, so we are very particular about the type of lighting that goes up there, but what about the actual finish, treatment, or texture of it?  Having a color or pattern on the ceiling can also give the illusion of elongating the walls and making the room feel larger by drawing the eye upwards. There are so many unexpected ways to treat your ceiling so it isn’t just boring white.
