Several years ago I designed a stencil and paint scheme for these three adjoining offices. I just saw it again this week and shot some photos.
It cracked me up. I thought the motif was more integrated into the design.

I could see doing an entire line of designs which play off of this historical paint scheme look. I think it would be so cool for kid's rooms, or nurseries...with a more appropriate motif. Wish I had added a 1/4" line on that frieze.

I know you must own The Grammar of Ornament by Owen Jones. Inspired....

Yes, I have that. Though at the time I did this, I was also doing a lot of historical restoration, so the genre was drilled into my brain.
