I fell off the Blog Post Wagon and missed Monday, but technically it was a holiday. Today's post is about Transitional Borders. This type of border is great when you want to break up a wall using two different finishes, but there is no natural break, such as a chair rail.
I used just such a transitional border here on this elegant stairway. The top portion of the walls are painted a very pale yellow, with straight paint. The bottom portion and the border are done using Brown Suede Lusterstone.
I carried the border onto the curved wall on the first floor of this foyer. This really helped to accentuate the beautiful curvature of the wall, while also adding interest.
Here you can see the two walls together.
Lucky for us, there is an entire category called "Transitions", featuring one time use stencil patterns over at the Modello site, which is where I ordered this design.
