Ava Roth, who runs a custom cake business, hand painted her livingroom with gold paint to mimic the look of wallpaper. The pattern doesn’t repeat and the work took a year to complete.
The initial inspiration for the painting itself came from looking at the designer Tord Boontje’s beautiful work. … I looked at images of forest foliage and animals on the internet when I needed fresh ideas of what to paint.
The first step was painting the walls dark grey (Benjamin Moore “Cinder” AF-705). I chose this color because I knew I wanted to paint in gold and thought that a sharp contrast between the wall color and the gold would appear very chaotic. The gold paint is from Sheffield Bronze Paint Corp., and is a water-based paint called “Supertone Golden Touch.” — Ava Roth
