On a Blue Streak


*Note to reader: This post was written after ingesting Alkaseltzer Plus Night Cold Formula. I had good CLEAR intentions before starting, but it hijacked my brain and made me a bit rambly.  (But I FEEL great!) Sorry, I really like blue lacquer. Also, spell check wouldn't work... of all days!

While browsing through the lovely images on Jennifer Robertson's new blog Belclair House I spied this image...


Actually my peepers went right to this part...
Oh those walls! Show me more!!!! I haven't bought the latest Veranda and I'd love to know if they do. I'd buy it for sure.
This got me spinning on blue lacquered walls again.  I love /want the look, and it is so hard to achieve because it shows every imperfection in the wall.  I don't mind them if its an old house, its actually adds character, but when its newer contruction there really is no excuse.  So this brings me to wallpaper.  I was just looking through Phillip Jefferies Sourcebook the other night and was admiring their lacquered offerings. It's definitely is a bit more forgiving than paint.  The navy immediately had me drooling, and then I saw their lacquered strie wallpaper. To die for! Just take a look...

And here it used by Bradley Stephens in the gameroom of Hampton 2010 Designer Showhouse...



 I am really enjoying the color combo and that rug!


And for all you Chanel fans, they make a quilted lacquered paper...

see more colors here. Oh, so many good choices.


So I leave you with some eye candy.
For those of you smooth and shiny purists check out Sketch 42's post filled with lots of blue glossy goodness here.

Thank you so much Danika! I loove blue glossy walls too. Great post! There is a better picture in the January/February issue of Veranda that I couldn't use because I was over-aggressive in tearing out the page (clearly I got too excited about it!) Feel better and don't let those boys be big ole babies :)

Oh, gosh, the thought of a fully-lacquered room makes me weak in the knees, especially in such a rich cobalt! I need to hurry up and purchase a house so I can implement all these inspirational ideas!
