Quietening Down a Look – Before & After

 The homeowner, an interior designer, pulled colors from the adjoining bedroom, and painted stripes around the fireplace surround in this sitting rom. It’s a neat look, but just didn’t work in this setting.

So he had me take leftovers from the grasscloth I had hung in the bedroom some years ago, and put it around the fireplace.

Voilà! A much softened look, while still adding texture and interest.

(In the “before” picture, at the top, the white stuff is my primer…I had started priming before I realized I should snap photos.)
