Day 39 ~ WALLPAPER-A-DAY "Met"


This pattern is based on the "Studiolo" wood-inlaid ceiling at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The studiolo was commissioned around 1476 by the duke of Urbino, Federico da Montefeltro. 

Our client wanted a painted representation of this wood inlay between the old beams in their great room in the Palm Springs area of CA. We were able to paint a section and reproduce it as wallpaper. A win for our necks and a win for the client who saved a substantial amount of time and money.

In the images above the repeat is 13.5” and the pattern can be expanded in all directions if you don’t have beams to contain it.
