Lacquer Looks

Lustrous. Dramatic. Shimmering like a mirage, lacquer walls transform the most staid rooms into an unforgettable space.  Layers of high gloss paint, water based varnish and a good painter is all that is needed to achieve this glamorous look.

The ceiling is a great surface to add shine as it reflects light making a room brighter. Designer Tobi Fairley used a navy blue in this glamorous bedroom project.
Wallpaper is a short cut to getting the lacquer look.  Phillip Jeffries offers a Vinyl paper with a shiny finish in a variety of fabulous colors.
