Can’t Hold My Lacquer

Blue Lacquer. It sounds, maybe, like a design trend from some 80’s more is more is more interior design fever dream. The reality? It’s a sophisticated, bold masterstroke. Instant low-key grandeur. Fresh but not trendy, daring and classic at once. It especially seams to work well with built-ins.¬† I think I’d use it in a home library or office, somewhere with books, a quiet room to get lost in. It gives a room instant history and mystery, and in some hues can work as a neutral, while still giving imparting visual interest. Some of these examples may not technically be lacquer¬† – instead they’re just high-gloss paint – but it’s the lacquered effect they were going for and which they achieved.
