This living room had a built-in nitch. I emphasized it with a border of faux tiles.

Both of these samples were achieved with a glazing technique. The first photo shows an off-white background with a brown glaze over it. The second photo (in a theater room) has a golden yellow background and a reddish brown glaze. tex1 tex2
