What type of latter did you use to paint these high ceilings??? - Abe very similar high ceilings above the staircase going to the second floor. I painted most of the wall but I cannot paint it without making a mess of the wall perpendicular. Help! Thanks

This project was done in 2006, with Kelly Moore paints. At the time, these were the paint names -
KM3607-3 Cimarron Trail
KM3199-3 Navajo Turquoise
Hope this helps!

The designer of this fixture is wrong. The fixture is an original design by Brian Landau his website is

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Complementary ColorsRed and green are opposite each other on the wheel, so they are complementary colors. Though they remind most people of Christmas, that needn't always be the case. This distressed chair and amazing tile wall certainly don't say "holiday" thanks to their complementary colors.Orange and blue also are at opposite points. In using them, you'll have an instant complementary color scheme.
Kelly Porter added this to 'Crash' Colors for an Extraordinary Look
Dynamic Duo. Colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel create a dramatic and visually stimulating space. Here, blue and orange enliven a stairwell and also emphasize the interesting angles of the ceiling.
Or some bright, bold colors.
Samantha Schoech added this to Modern Mexico
One of the great things about Mexican design is the exuberant use of color. Here, contrasting but complementary colors meet at 90-degree angles to create architectural interest and enliven what would otherwise be a fairly ho-hum hallway.
Lisa Frederick added this to Mango: Orange for the Rest of Us
Here's a similar take on orange and blue, with the proportions reversed. The blue helps to tone down the wall color and keep it from feeling cloying, and creates a sort of inverse focal point.
