Hello hello, blog buddies! I am back from the brink of certain death by bubonic infection, and baby Ike is feeling much better, as well. Along with heaping doses of Oprah, Supernanny, and baby Tylenol, your well wishes and kind words healed our sickness. It's a miracle! Or maybe my resurrection is the result of these hot rooms that have my blood a' pumping, because you know what -- the gloss is boss.
Yesss, paired with deep, dark paint, a glossy finish adds depth and -- dare I say -- an element of mystery?
A super high gloss finish like the one in this room by Miles Redd is like hot lingerie for your walls, and you don't want to force your walls to wear granny panties, do you?
No granny panties here, just sleek sophistication. But make sure to smooth out walls before painting, because a glossy sheen reveals imperfections and no one wants to see that orange peel cellulite on your wall.
Why not spread the shine to the ceiling, while you're at it?
And although black looks fabulously fresh in a high gloss finish, a whole rainbow of dark hues could work beautifully.
Dark and glossy is grown up sexy, but use it sparingly. Much like makeup, you don't want too much shiny, or you risk looking trashy.
Although a shiny finish does make for easy cleanup.
