I’m seeing lacquered walls and wood paneling everywhere these days. The beauty of lacquered walls is that they fit equally well in modern and traditional room decor. Lacquering a serious library in a not-so-serious color can modernize and relax a space, making it more inviting a family friendly. On the other hand, lacquered rooms can create a traditional and sophisticated design.
Lacquered walls are definitley on trend right now and I want to know – do you love it or leave it?
While all lacquered spaces are hot right now, I’m seeing these rooms primarily in blue tones. Blue is hot, lacquer is hot… makes perfect sense to meld the two together.

While blue seems to be popular everywhere, and especially in lacquered walls, I am also seeing lacquer in other bold colors with stunning results. Blue is a little more serious. The following rooms, however, and bold, relaxed and FUN.
And finally a gray tone is a bit more calm, but still equally breathtaking in result.

What do you think of lacquered paneling in place of stained wood? Do you love it or would you leave it? Do you have wood paneling that you would lacquer? What color would you do?
I’ll admit, I absolutely love this look. We have a library space in our new home and I would love to lacquer the whole room. I’m not sure if I can squeeze that out of my remodel budget… Stay tuned for more on that.
