Updated Damask

After shot of dinning room:


Before (from Ugly 80's, dated colors and wall paper border):


Elegant, bold, fun and dramatic damask on dinning room walls. Originally I thought I was going to do an all-over design, filling all white spaces, but stopped at this point. It was enough. Dramatic view from street when lit up at night!


This was a surprise treat for client-friend. She left me her keys to cat-sit and bring in the mail. She was gone a week. She invited us to use her pool all week. To make ourselves feel at home.

So I took her dinning room and treated it like my own!

I knew she loved my dinning room ceiling (same damask pattern is on my ceiling) and she was in process of ripping off border. I knew if she hated what I did, I could always paint over it for her...


But she loves it!

Did you use RL Duchesse Satin Ballroom Gold Paint? If so, where did you find it? Need to touch up a wall in my dining room.

YES, that is exactly the paint! You can still buy Ralph Lauren Ballroom colors at Home Depot--if you have the name, they have the computer formula. They have phased in Martha Stewart metallics, but I really liked the RL line much MUCH better. Good luck on the patch work!
