The Wallpapered Ceiling

David Cafiero
Are you bold enough to use a dramatic Chinoiserie wallpaper? Then why not go all out and paper the ceiling too for even greater impact? By the way, speaking of impact, do any of you hate the new love affair with the non-existent word "impactful" as much as I do?

Ok that beautiful midnight blue velvet on the chairs in the Maison 140 photo is what I dream about having on a couch!

Gorgeous images, Beth! The second image is amazing. Appears to have an infinite space.
Happy Tuesday.

I love these rooms...instead of seeming oppressively over-patterned, they draw one in and feel amazingly fresh. As for "impactful," it is annoying, yet not as much as the constant use of "perfection" to describe rooms, pieces, and anything else someone likes a lot. Grrrrrrrrrr.

These rooms are so gorgeous! I can't decide if I'd like to really have all that paper in my house or not. I suppose one has to try it to know!

I love these rooms, especially the powder room. And THANK YOU for the "impactful" comment. Someone needed to say it: "impactful" is not a word, people.
