My recommendation is that bullnose corners do not suit color changes at outside transitions at all. The implication of a bullnose corner is to suggest that you have an integrated material such as plaster or adobe which wraps around the corner, and by changing color at that point you sabotage that effect. Color transitions should held to inside corners only.

I usually try to start/end colors right down the center line of the corner. In this room, the "wine color" is inviting and cozy and the hallway color is part of a larger space in the home. I chose to bend the green into the entrance before beginning the wine color to create an invitation to enter the dining room. Hope that helps!

Can you tell me the paint technique used on the base trim? - Love everything about this room!

It's just a simple dragging technique using an umber glaze on a cream base color. Super easy and much better than plain white!

Yes the walls are Venetian Plaster but the ceiling is tromp l'oeil painted to look like vaulted bricks and beams.

I feel your pain at trying to figure this one out, but am sure the colors are custom mixed. This is a trial and error process, with careful note-taking along the way. Venetian plaster makes colors take on a whole new life.

It is a Venetian Plaster, custom colors. There is not a stock color but you can order Venetian Plaster in any color you wish. Sorry I don't know more. It was done a very long time ago!

It's a custom colored Venetian Plaster and I do not have the formula, sorry. Some paint stores will fix custom colors for you.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Between Naps on the Porch added this to A Red Dining Room...Is It Right For Your Home?
Consider softening your red walls with a custom wall treatment. You will still get the same warmth and richness of red walls...but the walls will have a softer, more velvety feel.
Kelly Porter added this to Color Inspiration From the Mediterranean
This color of this space was most likely inspired by bougainvillea, a vibrant flowering plant seen throughout the Mediterranean region. Blossoms range from fuchsia to purple and apricot — all terrific hues for enjoying conversation and a great meal.
