What I Love About It: “If you have tall ceilings, break up the wall with paint.” No! Paint is boring! It has its uses, but it can only go so far. When I first dipped my ignorant little toes into interior design, I was amazed at available wall treatments and space dividers that had nothing to do with color blocking or semi-gloss. Bamboo, fabric, stone - dozens of potential uses for material on walls to give the same color punch as a paint can while adding visual interest to the extreme. I love the depth a room is given when large chunks of wall are taken up by a solid material. Also, major design boner for those abundant, skeletal windows.
What I Don’t: Art that’s leaned instead of hung is one of my major design pet peeves. I’m also wary of this trend re: bathtubs inside the bedrooms, though only because I worry what the steam must do to decorative stuff!
