Faux Facelift

Monday, September 24th, 2007

The new owner of this Alexandria home was lucky to inherit some beautiful faux finishing. Only problem was, the color scheme didn’t match her decor!… so, without a complete do-over, I simply recolored some of the stripes while leaving the gold tones in tact. The result was elegant, yet bold, and that complimented her furniture.
