THE LACQUER APPLICATION APPEAL

The Lacquered Room is enjoying itself a bit of a renaissance. It has been a design staple since antiquity, but the modern perspective has benefited it greatly. It triggers the most primordial fascination towards objects with luster. Its glossy magnetism has that powerful ability to harness color to do its bidding. Do you need to raise the electricity in a space? Falling short on presence? A sure fire way is employing a high impact finish like lacquer to your walls. Humble doors, ceilings, panels, trim are elevated from their mundane existence.

“It triggers the most primordial fascination towards objects with luster.”

It is important to note that real lacquer application is no easy undertaking. It is applied by spray and the fumes aren’t exactly pleasant. Plan your local vacation accordingly. You will be pleased with the return of investment. The look is accessible to different budgets, with the advent of using enamel coating paired with a clear high gloss varnish as an alternative. And while there is absolutely no denying the inky impression left by classic black, irreverent colors can teleport you to newly discovered vistas of your personality. It’s a great way to dictate drama in the room. Tone on tone vignettes look just as ravishing as high contrast displays. It is an excellent lesson on “surrender” for the obsessive as well. The finish has its upkeep, and you will surely develop the knack of spotting fingerprints. This is a minor tax to a MAJOR energy.
