This kitchen and breakfast area have these gorgeous cabinets with burled wood inlay. The designer had me create a french rub on the walls.
Then, the plan was to add a metallic band around the perimeter of the kitchen ceiling.
The miter cut helps to make the faux more convincing.
I also faux finished the lower walls in the hallway leading into the kitchen. The chair rail molding and baseboards I finished in an aged bronze.
For the powder room across the hall, molding was used to create harlequins, then textured wallpaper was added. For the molding, I used the same aged bronze finish and inside the remaining harlequins is the french buff.
