Lacquered walls are glamorous and add an unexpected touch to your home. Deep, moody colors look fantastic when lacquered as they reflect light and take on a very rich feel. Shades of eggplant, emerald green, black and bright palettes look fabulous when applied on your walls in a high gloss finish. In combination with velvets, silks or other beautiful textiles a room can take on many textural and visual facets.
Jewel-tones are fabulous: one comes to think of the rich palette of 17th century Dutch Baroque painting or the bright hues of Salvador Dali's work. Colors reminiscent of French ultramarine, lapis lazuli, Chinese vermilion, Prussian blue, Indian yellow and crimson will add glow and rich luminescence to walls.
Miles Redd design. Traditional elements such as black and white marble floors and blue and white porcelain takes on a very modern feel against the high gloss cobalt blue walls. The leather on the white-painted bench and stools add extra shine to a hallway that pops with color and texture!

This vermilion red wall is a great match with the contemporary artwork. The designer wanted his small one-bedroom Nolita apartment to feel like an Opium den. He accomplished this by the daring and bold, high gloss red which is sure to stimulate the senses. Nick Olsen design.
