Striae painting is a technique that gives your walls, or woodwork a striped appearance. You achieve this look by dragging a dry brush through a glaze mixture that was applied over a base color.
You work your way around the room applying your striae finish and slightly overlap adjacent sections to provide a seamless appearance.
This technique was executed by YVStudio in the Master Bedroom of a luxury condominium loft in Tribeca, New York.
Although striae is often seen in traditional settings, it also makes a terrific backdrop in contemporary interiors.
In the den I brushed a warm beige colored glaze in 2 directions, vertical and horizontal, to achieve a linen effect.
