Ask Casa: Silver Striated Walls

Hi CasaSugar,

I'm wondering if you can help me. I want my bedroom walls to look like this silvery/striated color on the Z Gallerie Borghese Chest ($799). Is paint an option or must I find this wallpaper? Can you help a clumsy DIYer?

Thanks!

Hi Boatygirl,
I wouldn't recommend attempting to achieve this look with paint, unless you're a professional. The antique finish of the mirrored dresser would be difficult to replicate (unless you had mirrored walls), and metallic paints are notoriously unsatisfying if used on a large canvas like an entire wall. That said, I think your best option is to hang wallpaper, or hire a professional who specializes in faux finishes to paint your walls.
When redecorating her assistant's apartment, Ivanka Trump chose to dress the living area in a wallpaper that's the spitting image of the dresser you have your eye on. She used the Silver Pony Skin paper ($100 a roll) from New Orleans-based Flavor Paper. If the price is too steep for you, consider wallpapering a single wall as a focal point, such as the one behind your bed.

Hope that helps!
Cheers,
Casa
