Calling it: Brushstrokes

One of the stand out rooms in the second season of Million Dollar Decorators (a.k.a. best show ever made for planet earth), was the bedroom and sitting room for Amber Valetta.  The room was designed by Ross Cassidy, the right hand man at JAM.  

It's way too pink for my taste but the brushstroke ceiling is fabulous.  It makes the room.  I just wish I could have found a better picture of it.

I didn't know this was a trend until I saw a post on Chinoiserie Chic which featured burshstroke walls. 

I adore this Kelly Wearstler room.  But maybe I'm biased because I think I could live the rest of my life in only Kelly Wearstler rooms and be happy.

In theory, you could turn this concept into a DIY project, but if you have lots of disposable cash, you could have your very own brushstrokes walls curtsy of Amanda Nisbet.
