There seems to be a lot of indecision about what is going to happen with this room. I am having discussions daily with my client about the vision for this room and how it will all come together, as a whole, in the end. I’m constantly taping up the sample boards and fabric to try to further illustrate the concept. That said, I’m concentrating first on the Accent Wall.
The wall now has a soft peach tone, metallic glaze on it. I drew an assortment of large Ginkgo leaves on some masking film and cut out the shapes. I then used the cut out shapes on the wall to help decided the placement of the leaves.
Once I had that determined, I then replaced the cutout with the stencil I made. All of the leaves are going to receive a foil treatment, so I first based each leaf with a coordinating metallic paint.
If you do not want to draw and cut your own Ginkgo leaves, they are available as modellos.
I had just ordered a set of the new metallic stencil creams from Royal Designs and was dying to try them out. They come in some very beautiful colors and are a lot of fun to stencil with!
Here are a few leaves in progress.
All of the leaves will eventually get some Swarovski gems. While I am waiting for my lastes shipment to arrive, I used some left over Fire Opal gems I had from the foyer. I ordered some green and gold toned gems to go with the Fire Opal.
Here’s a close up of the Scallop pattern with the gems. I’m loving this Scallop design and think I may have to find a spot for it in my house. It works really well with the gems.
More to come…
