glamorous, paint

All lacquered up

    That yellow ceiling has me drooling. Here's the difference between you and me, Camila. I would never in a million years even think to do something like this myself. You, however, actually looked into it! This also explains why I have a million projects that need to be done and you're knocking them out like all the time. 🙂

    I have always wanted to do this with a black in a powder room or an inky blue in a study…i die.

    I really love black walls in high gloss – but I'd be so nervous to do it! It shows paint strokes like crazy.

  4. Stephanie Sabbe says:

    I would if I had REALLY nice drywall. I painted the bathroom in our old house a satin wine color, they were lath and plaster…disaster…looked terrible.

  5. Kwana says:

    These are come great looking rooms. I love the ceiling the best. Just yummy.

  6. paula says:

    love the green, my daughter must be rubbing off on me:)

  7. Miss Madras says:

    Don't think I would ever consider lacquering a wall or a ceiling, but honestly it's fabulous! Adds lots of glam to the space!

  8. MyLittleHappyPlace says:

    I don't know if I could be THAT gutsy – does that make me a design wimp?
    Maybe a ceiling done a la lacquer, I could handle!

  9. Nicole-Lynn says:

    I also love that look. I know this sounds cheesy, but I watched MTV Cribs w/ Mariah Carey and her walls were very glossy and that's when I fell in love with the glossy look! 🙂

  10. urbansardines says:

    That last room looks like the far wall is covered in glass? Is that sheen from lacquer(can't spell that word to save my life)? If so, I totally love it! Do you know? Now I am really curious, I so totally love that room!

  11. Blueprint Bliss says:

    I love all of these images!

  12. my favorite and my best says:

    i painted my bathroom a high gloss black. check it-

  13. mrosev14 says:

    I love the blue, it looks beautiful. That would be a wonderful color in my office…hmm….

  14. vicki archer says:

    Fantastic – it is kind of retro too, I think. Love the interior pic of the French desk – great colour. xv

  15. C says:

    I was really wondering if I'd be able to do this myself til you mentioned the pro. That'd definitely be the way to go.. I just know I'd mess them up royally.

  16. Maria Killam says:

    Hey you really found some great images in the high gloss that would have been great on my sheen post last week! Wonderful post!

  17. Lynett says:

    I would love to try it, but way too chicken!

  18. LindsB says:

    I know, I wish it was not hard to lacquer a wall! Everything has to be smooth, smooth as any tiny imperfection will show once its lacquered- total bummer because it would be a fun DIY project 🙂

  19. Kristen says:

    You find the best pictures!!

  20. Laura Casey Interiors says:

    I completely am with you on the burgundy and liking that one. Great images and nice post.

  21. Blair says:

    Oh, what a wonderful post! I definitely typically go for a fletter finish for paint but you have totally changed my mind!!! xx

  22. Yansy says:

    I was just thinking about doing this in one of my clients home. You have inspired me to push for it.

    P.S. I also wanted to invite you to participate in my give-away. I thought I should return the favor. I have a feeling it will look amazing in your new office.

    When I bought the super high gloss paint at the hardware store, Mr.Hardware said, "ARe you Sure?"
    I shook my head, Yes!

    I love the mix of hi & low.
    Call me emotional…

  24. Lauren says:

    so glam- looking. i would def do it in the right room. awseome collection of images!!!

  25. Embellished Bayou says:

    Ooooh, I haven't seen this before, love it! So dramatic!

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
